For trumpet students I initially provide my own material, based on the exercises which I have found to be beneficial in my own playing.  Early on, I'll ask most students to play a recording of one of their favorite songs, which we'll use to improvise to as well as for ear-training purposes. As soon as the student has learned enough notes, we'll begin playing songs. I firmly believe that developing a good sense of a singing style is the foundation for good playing. For piano students I use the Alfred Piano Book series, which has nice approaches for both younger and older beginners.  I will introduce some theory as early as possible so facilitate improvisation and an understanding of playing songs.

I consider myself a very dedicated teacher.  I love what I do and this is reflected through my students and my lessons.  I have been studying classical guitar for a decade, while playing bass constinently in various bands and ensembles.  I have studied many styles of music that include classical, flamenco, gypsy jazz, jazz, blues, and rock.  I have played in many local venues and continue to play in many festivals, churches, and venues.

I've had over 13 years of teaching experience in guitar for beginner, intermediate, and some advanced students, and 6 years of teaching experience in piano for beginners.  I demonstrate technique of performing, lend tips on how to correct mistakes, and show how to further their experience while developing his or her own style.  I'm very encouraging, always emphasizing a positive and productive approach to learning.  I like to guide each student into the directions and styles that he or she wants to learn, while allowing them to set reasonable and realistic goals.  Overall, the enjoyment of teaching and having other students learn, achieve, and accomplish their goals on their instrument is what makes it all worthwhile.

  I just recently moved to New York City from Denver, Colorado. Up until the day before I moved, I was working as a music teacher at Neighborhood Music Stapleton- a private music school in Denver. I was an instructor for over 50 different students weekly, in-studio and in-home lessons, ages varying from as young as 2 to adult. My primary student base was ages 4-16. I also had several adult students where I taught advanced vocal performance. I also taught two different hour long group vocal classes twice a week, one for ages 3-6, and the other for 7-10 year olds. On average, I teach around 30 lessons a week, mostly 30 minute sessions and several hour long sessions in addition to my group classes.   I specialize in advanced vocal instruction and talent development. I can also teach theory, guitar, beginner piano, songwriting, ukulele, bass, and basic acting instruction and audition skills.

Teaching Violin: Tips for New Teachers

...Make a chart to keep track of lesson rates. What do you charge for a 30-minute lesson? An hour-long lesson? What is the fee for a group class? Do you offer any other courses, like a music theory class? Record the amounts you charge, and the variations on price. For example, if one family has more than one child taking lessons from your studio, do you offer a discount for each additional child?

Across the Universe Chords for Guitar

...“Across The Universe” was released on The Beatles’ album “Let It Be” in 1970. This masterpiece finds The Beatles at their very best, and it manages to showcase a spiritual and almost otherworldly quality. We’re going to show you how to play the Across The Universe chords on guitar with this blog and an instructional video. To make things easier, I’m teaching this song in standard guitar tuning, but the recorded version features the acoustic guitar tuned down a half step.   Intro   Featuring one of the best instrumental song introductions in all of pop music, this intro is perfect for helping beginner guitar students to get familiar with the upper registers of the guitar. I recommend playing this intro as slowly as possible, even though it’s played very quickly during the actual song. Verses   After ... Read More

Suzuki Institute 101: A Beginners Guide to Summer Institutes

...in. This is the point where some teachers have their students learn material that is outside of the Suzuki repertoire books – and it is inspiring to hear what other lovely music is out there.   Maybe you have an advanced student – say Book 8 or 10? Some institutes have programs that accommodate this level of playing – although it is common to put advanced students in a chamber music section of the Suzuki institute. Chamber music programs are more autonomous, sometimes teen-only. And they are more work, very focused on rehearsal and practice. Parents are welcome to come along, but ... Read More
