As a composer and multi-instrumentalist, I have put myself in a position that brings me across an extremely wide and dense variety of music that I've been only too happy to explore. In addition to my long-running classical training with piano, clarinet and composition, I've explored jazz, world, rock, fusion, electronic and avant-garde music through the acquisition of my composition degree and through extensive research and self-teaching with saxophone and guitar.

Instruments: Piano Guitar Voice Drums Bass Guitar

I have been teaching for 10+ years via traveling to students homes and via my private drum studio. Most of my students often say that lessons with me are VERY FUN and VERY PRODUCTIVE. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a working professional or if it’s because I just love to teach, but lessons are fun for me too. I love to teach my students the basic tools of what it takes to be a professional musician, whether or not they are into music as a hobby or as a serious profession. Read More

Instruments: Guitar

I don't teach out of method books. I will write notes during the lesson and give them to the student, and sometimes give them websites to look up or other resources I feel would be helpful. I like to teach the student how to play songs from bands that they like, or whatever else they are interested in. I find that not having a book allows us the freedom to take the lessons in any direction that we want, without having to follow a set path. Read More

Instruments: Piano Guitar Voice Violin Trumpet Trombone Saxophone Flute Clarinet Drums Recorder Euphonium Tuba Mallet Percussion

I began teaching people how to play instruments when I was in high school, by teaching new students to the band how to play percussion. I then continued teaching once in college by volunteering at local high schools helping new students to the band programs learn brass and percussion. From there I worked with the Rich South high school band director and the Jack Hille middle school band directors. Once I graduated college I taught choir and instrumental music for the catholic school system for two years. Read More

What advice do you have about practicing effectively?
There is a Navy Seal expression "Slow is Fast. Slow is efficient; efficient is fast; slow is fast". When it comes to practicing and instrument, whether it be scales, or a specific lick or riff, one must always start slowly. It can be a little frustrating to some, but making sure that you start slow and build your way up is the fastest and most accurate way of learning any piece of music. I always remind myself that the players with the fastest fingers had to build their way there, nobody is born playing music, we all learn it slowly.

How do I know if my child is ready to start lessons?
When it comes to guitar and/or bass, the only thing that really matters is the size and strength of the student's hands. The child will be ready when their hands are ready. Anyone can learn any instrument, but not every hand can fit across the neck of a guitar or bass. I typically just say most students under the age of 8 are a little too young, but there can be some exceptions depending on how fast the child is growing. If under 8, I say learn piano for the theory and start guitar/bass when your hands are big enough.

When will I start to see results?
Everyone sees results at different speeds, and everyone will consider different accomplishments to be a result. If you have never played a note on an instrument, you could consider just being able to play a couple notes on the guitar/bass to be results. However, if you are more advanced, results could be understanding the theory, or learning a new song that was too hard for you before. Results depend on goals, but any goal can be achieved with time and practice. No one can get WORSE at an instrument, you will only improve with time.

Did you have a teacher that inspired you to go into music? How did they inspire you?
My inspiration for getting into music did not come from a teacher, but from my own passion and desire to be a guitar player and bassist. My teachers, with their talent, inspired me to practice, and made learning my instrument enjoyable and fun. I do not think a teacher can inspire someone to get into music, the student has to want to be a musician on his/her own, and a teacher's roll is to help the student reach their goals in an enjoyable environment, giving advice and pointing out strengths / weaknesses.

Why did you choose your primary instrument?
I chose the guitar first, and then picked up bass later in life. I chose guitar because as a young child my parents listened to a lot of guitar heavy music from the 80s. I grew to become very fond of the music they listened to and wanted to be able to play something. Then when I saw videos of these bands performing, I was drawn to the guitarist, I thought he was the coolest one. I picked up bass later after listening to funk bands and how important bass can be. Everyone will be drawn to a different instrument, the instrument will choose you.

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.
