I began studying viola when I was 7 and learned through the Suzuki Method.  By the time I was in high school I was a teacher assistant at the Farmington Summer Suzuki String Academy where I taught private and group lessons for young students.  During that time I also was learning guitar and giving lessons to children in my neighborhood. While I was at the University of Connecticut working on my Bachelor of Arts in Music and studying viola, I taught at the UConn Community School of the Arts.  There I coached small chamber groups of middle and high school students and lead rehearsals of larger chamber ensembles.  I also began participating in choir and learning vocal technique and choral conducting.  I studied orchestral conducting as well and am now the assistant director of the Northeast CT Community Orchestra.  Through this orchestra I was able to meet many new musicians and also began giving lessons to older and wiser members of the orchestra.  When it comes to music, I love that I can work with people of all ages and that people's love for music can grow with them for a lifetime.

I began teaching guitar and piano privately my Freshman year of High School. It quickly grew into a passion of mine. I have continued to teach privately since then, and was even selected by the Hartt School to be a piano tutor. The ability to share my love of music with others is one of the most rewarding experiences, and I often feel that I learning as much from teaching as from my own study.

Nothing is more rewarding than helping someone discover their musical personality. Again, my style of teaching is partially dependent on what a student hopes to gain from lessons, but I first like to develop a rapport with the musicians I work with in order to foster a comfortable environment and healthy ambition. I think it is also necessary to set realistic goals to allow students to actively see their own progress. Most importantly, I believe learning to play music should be fun. Practicing scales and rudiments must be cerebral and disciplined, however music at its core is a joy, and keeping this in mind is fundamental to my style of teaching.

I like the Hal Leonard Guitar Method series, for guitar.  I also use scales, picks, fingerstyle methods, and backing tracks to help get the students up to speed on a song or a riff they'd like to learn.  It's important to understand the background of music, so I tend to also teach students the structure of a 12-bar blues progression and relate it to songs of yesterday and today.  This enables students to get a well-rounded introduction to understanding timing, tempo, basic theory/progressions, improvisational ideas, and more!  I also like to use a metronome for scales and some songs, to help build a solid foundation of timing and tempo.

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.
