Piano - I find that no one method book is completely standalone, so i incorporate several method books...Piano Adventures, John Thompson's course, Piano Pronto, and some self-composed music for my youngest students!  Intermediate-level pianists start choosing some of their own repertoire as well. Clarinet - For students who do well with method books, I use the Rubank Elementary & Intermediate books, and A New Tune A Day books by Ned Bennett.  For students who learn in a less structured way, I love to arrange famous classical melodies as clarinet duets and solos.  Intermediate and advanced students generally progress through the standard classical repertoire, unless their interest lies in popular or jazz music instead.

For beginning students who are children, I usually start with the Hal Leonard and FJH young beginner guitar method series book for guitar and ukulele.  As soon as they can, I try to move them on to learning and strumming songs that they like.  For more advanced guitar students, I also teaching reading and theory out of the Mel Bay guitar book series.  For banjo students, I teach out of the Hal Lenoard Banjo Method book.

"The art of teaching is the Art of assisting discovery" - Mark Van Doren My teaching method is always geared towards to students’ goals. From being a student I have learned that the best teacher is able to identify what exactly needs to be developed in your playing to take you to the next level. This approach is applicable to the beginner and to the advanced student. Because of this outlook, my teaching materials are catered to the student.

I like to teach students 4 major things: Scales, ear training, music theory and a repertoire piece.  Scales: 12 major and minor.  Just one octave to build their dexterity up.  I also like teaching intermediate students the modes (ex. Lydian, Mixolydian, and Phrygian).Ear Training (during lesson, no HW required): I Teach students to try and hear the difference between major, minor, diminished and augmented chords.  This is fun to teach, because it can help students decipher what key a piece is in.  It also can help students to analyze music better down the road. Music Theory:  I teach this from the bastien series books.  This typically includes things such as: Time signatures, key signatures, intervals, tempos, and articulations.Repertoire Piece: Students and I choose a piece from a book that they can work on.  I ask that they work on the material with hands separately first, until they can play it with the correct notational values, and then slowly work with both hands together and then practice it well until it is up to speed.

I have been teaching for over 5 years. I began as a private lesson coach and have been consistenatly growing with students for around 7 years. As well as song and technical technique, my students and I also focus in on composition, songwriting, improvosition, discovery of sound and direction, and artistry. I combine both clossical and modern technique's and combine them into a personalized lesson and practice plan for the student. I believe in steady but fun practice out side of classes and encourage my students to run through pieces or excersizes around 5 times a day or for around 15 minutes. I work and thrive with students of all musical backgrounds and ages and am looking to help students ignite a new creative world within themselves!

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.
