I have been teaching bass and guitar professionally for the last 14 years. In that time I have had the privilege of working with a very diverse group of students. I enjoy helping them all find their niche and develop their skills as they not only become technically proficient on their chosen instrument, but also become better all around musicians. I'm proud to say that I have seen some of my students go on to study music at prestigious colleges.

My goal as a teacher is to avoid any type of dogmatic "one size fits all" curriculum.  I always want to know what music the student enjoys and build my lesson plans based on their tastes.  Chords can be physically challenging for beginners so I like to work with single-note melodies early on so that the student isn't quickly discouraged.  Learning chords becomes the medium-term goal.  As for the long-term, I will then use specific songs as examples for how music theory works in the context of their favorite bands.  I am always prepared to adjust my lesson plans based on the students progress and overall comfort zone.

I use String Builder and Suzuki Methods for strings and essential elements for clarinet. I emphasize good posture, holding the instrument and bow properly and correct finger placement.  Also learning to play scales and music to prepare for auditions and a recital.

While a student is developing hand coordination, I like to keep them interested in other aspects of music.  Scales can be boring, but they are needed.  I encourage the students to read and write music.  It's important to get good at notation early on.  I also like to bring songwriting into the mix.  Creative people have ideas that they want to get out.  I try to develop ideas and show the options that most students don't realize they have.

No matter the level of student, I always work with the genre of music they are interested in. I choose specific songs the student likes to facilitate the skills they need to learn. Therefore, they are playing songs (in their skill level) that they enjoy while mastering important skills needed to improve and enable practicing. Practice is important and my teaching style essentially teaches my students how to practice. I institute a goal-oriented program tailored for each student. Some students may just want to play songs for their own enjoyment. If they have or develop loftier goals such as recording a video in my studio for their relatives/friends, playing in a band, writing their own music, playing at my showcases and open mic events, or all of the above, then I work hand-in-hand with my student to reach that goal.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
