Instruments:

For the instruments that I teach, I incorporate proper hand position techniques into the playing. Teaching a student how to hold the instrument and relax with it is the most important thing I do. I start with the notation and how it relates to the instruments I teach. For the guitar and the Bass guitar I work from the segovia scale fingerings for both the major and minor scales. Then from there, I evolve into other scale forms and fingerings when necessary. For drums I will teach marching rudiments on the snare and then transition to basic sight reading exercises before going into rock and jazz beats. For piano I work from the traditional major and minor scales first. There will be room for improvisational methods during the lessons. I also incorporate songs that people like into the reading exercises with correct notation and fingering accounted for in the chart. I only use TAB charts for conversion into actual music and fingerings.

As a beginner, nothing is more satisfying than being able to play recognizable tunes as soon as possible.  I typically lay out a patterned tier of simple and well known musical phrases for a student to gain initial confidence with while introducing basic performance principles.  Once the the fundamentals of playing are beginning to click, we will start to customize our approach based on the student's particular goals.  Not to worry, many students have a loose idea of what they are striving for at first and their curriculum develops naturally as they master certain skills and knowledge.  Every student gets their own unique curriculum based on their interests and goals.

I teach reading to all of my younger and beginner students but I like to balance that with material that is a little more enjoyable for them. I like to work with the student to settle on something from their own music collection that is at an appropriate level for them to learn. I can learn guitar parts by ear very quickly so it's easy to jump right in to whatever a student may suggest, but I also have a collection of tunes at different levels that I have had success with in the past. With older students, I try to cater the lessons to their personal needs and interests. For example, It may not seem fitting or appropriate to teach single-note reading to an older student that has no experience reading music, and who may specifically want to learn to sing and accompany their voice on an acoustic guitar. You can learn to play chords on the guitar without ever looking at a staff. That is a luxury we have with the guitar, which is something that makes it different from almost every other instrument, and in my mind, just being a "chord player" is an acceptable goal for a certain type of student. Just to clarify, I would never say that reading is not important. It is very important to people like me, as a jazz player, and I take it very seriously, as do many of my students.

My teaching style is defined by a combination of high standards, understanding, nurture and patience.  I will set realistic goals for each student based on his/her abilities.  I will encourage and try new ways to explain or demonstrate a skill that the student is having difficulty with and I will be extremely enthusiastic about their accomplishments.  However, I will assertively make it known if the student shows that they have not been practicing in a supportive way.  I give my students tips and instructions on how to practice.  Assignments are not removed from their practice list until they have been mastered.

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.
