Instruments: Piano

The key to being successful in playing the piano is Practice. I always encourage my students to practice but also, it is very important for the Parent to take part in their child's learning. I assign homework weekly/bi-weekly depending on how often we meet for lessons. At the start of the next lesson, we will go over the homework and I will either pass them or they are required to re-do it for homework. Read More

Instruments: Drums Mallet Percussion Orchestral Percussion Conga Latin Percussion Djembe

When I receive a new student the first thing I do is assess where they are technically and what their interests are. From there I develop custom lesson plans that are design to improve a certain technique while learning new music. For example if a student comes in and really loves Michael Jackson's music but doesn't know how to hold the drumsticks or read music, I will give them basic exercises to improve their lack of technical ability and then we'll apply it to a song.

Jeff P

Instruments: Saxophone

I like my students to tell me what they would like to get from taking lessons. I then integrate what they want to learn with what I think they should learn. While learning a song or piece of music, I teach the student pertinent music concepts and saxophone technique. I find giving students scales and exercises to learn without context is often discouraging for them because they are not sure why and how they apply in other music situations. Read More

Teacher In Spotlight

Marcus J

Instruments: Saxophone

Did you have a teacher that inspired you to go into music? How did they inspire you?
Yes! My high school band camp instructor inspired my friend and I to pursue music professionally. We had already been interested but he really refined our thought process on a lot of things musically and non-musically that helped shape me into the person I am today. His skill and knowledge was inspiring because he made everything look so simple. This way of thought really caught my attention when I was a student. He's still very active in the music composition community which means he's still influential to me.

What do you think is the hardest thing to master on your instrument?
The hardest thing to master on the saxophone is altissimo because in order to master that, you first need to master the overtone series. The overtone series consists of "hidden" high notes within the low register of the horn. You can exploit these notes by overblowing on your mouthpiece, tightening your jaw and opening your throat wide as if you were yawning. This is the most difficult exercise for your embouchure but it can really strengthen those muscles and take your playing to the next level.

If you have a Music Degree, what is it in (Performance, Education, Musicology, Theory, Composition, etc) and why did you choose that degree?
My major is in Jazz Performance and Composition. I chose this specific major because I was inspired from a live show performed at my school when I was 15. It was a nine piece ensemble with five horns and four rhythm section players. They played some original tunes and some arrangements of some jazz songs that I really took a liking to. Their soloing blew my mind because I had never heard instrumentalist play so well together from memory. Their professionalism and sound quality really drove my interests to the next level.

What is your dream piece to perform and why?
I suppose my dream tune to play over effortlessly would be countdown by John Coltrane because it's upbeat and the changes are quite difficult to interpret. I poses a challenge because to get the speed up to par, you first have to master many techniques and be able to get around your instrument effortlessly without hesitation. The next step is to hear the harmony and be able to make shapes over the changes that make melodic sense. On top of all that, you're interacting with the other band members and trying to create a real connections that's enjoyable and exciting to the listener.

If you weren't a musician what do you think you'd be doing instead?
If I wasn't a musician, I'd like to think that I'd be in the arts in some other way. Perhaps a painter or cartoonist. I loved art class as a kid but never believed that I could do it for a living so it never sparked my interest as a career, only a hobby. I remember winning competitions for art class and receiving strong grades as well. But as a kid, I always had a dream of becoming an architect for houses. I also still have a desire to give back to the community in some way, maybe as a volunteer fireman.

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.
