Instruments: Piano Guitar Voice Bass Guitar Organ Synthesizer Ukulele Keyboard Electric Guitar Acoustic Guitar
Depending on the level of the student, I will work with what they already have and expand based on the genres they want to learn. If the students' main goal is to shred like Hendrix, then I would start with the basics of blues. I'd explain the blues through terms of the major scale and western music theory, which makes it accessible to students would otherwise have no concept of the genre. Read More
Instruments: Piano Voice Violin Keyboard Acoustic Guitar
I tailor my lessons to each individual student. Students learn at different rates, so, therefore, I want each student to progress at his or her own pace, without comparison to where my other students may be at. I want learning an instrument to be an enjoyable experience, and though the student may have to do and play practices, exercises, and pieces that they may not necessarily enjoy in the moment, it will all be beneficial to him or her in the long run and I will incorporate pieces and selections that interest them as well.

Since then, I teach music theory and ear training both in person and online as an adjunct instructor of music at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. I currently reside in Memphis, where I am building my studio and work base. I encourage my students to think creatively while continuing to practice their craft. I believe that music can be a very rewarding art form through the right amount of focus and openness to learn. Read More

I am 29 years old and have been playing music since I was 9 and actively playing in bands since age 15. Starting with classic rock and blues, I slowly began to encompass a wide variety of styles into my playing, like funk and reggae. I graduated from Wake Forest University in 2013 and actively played jazz with the music program in addition to having an independent student band. After graduating, I moved to Spain for a year and played acoustic guitar all over the country. Read More
Instruments: Bass Guitar
For children and adults alike, I teach from the Ed Friedland Bass Method Book 1. It was actually the book that I started out on and Friedland is a well done studio and live bassist. He is just as amazing on bass guitar as he is on double bass. Once the student has progressed from that book then I move on to sight seeing with the student. After this then I move on to transribing basslines and meldodic lines. Read More
Instruments: Guitar Voice Harmonica
Growing up in Memphis, I began playing the piano at age 6. After moving to bass guitar a few years later, I finally picked up my brother's acoustic guitar and never looked back. At Vanderbilt University, I studied music and English and began gigging professionally in Nashville while still finishing my degree. I've worked as a singer/songwriter, touring artist and session musician in both Nashville and New York City. I'm proud to call Memphis home again when I'm not on tour. Read More

When did you decide to become a professional musician? Was it a gradual decision or was there a defining moment for you?
I decided to become a professional musician in 10th grade after attending the interlochen summer camp. It was there that I found that I just truly enjoyed playing more than anything else!
Does music run in your family? Tell us a little about your musical family members.
My grandmother is a fantastic pianist, but other than that none of my family members really went into music beyond high school. Don't worry if none of your family members are musicians!
What is your favorite style/genre of music to play and why?
I love classical music, but ultimately my favorite genre of music has to be 30's/40's big band music. I love swing bands and can listen to them all day!
If you play more than one instrument, how did you decide to start playing the second? (Or 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc)!
I have been playing piano for almost a year and did so because I wanted to expand my musicianship. I truly enjoy taking up a secondary instrument because I allows me musical outlets that trombone doesn't!
What does a normal practice session look like for you?
A usual practice session for me is roughly an hour long and I will either spend it working on a fundamental routine, a solo piece, orchestral excerpts, or just having a good time playing through music I enjoy.
If you have a Music Degree, what is it in (Performance, Education, Musicology, Theory, Composition, etc) and why did you choose that degree?
I am going for my performance degree because I truly love performing on the instrument. I especially enjoy ensemble music where the trombone gets to play very loud!
What is your dream piece to perform and why?
My dream piece to perform someday would have to be the Harvest Concerto by John Mackey. It was the first concerto I ever heard on the trombone and truly inspired me to go into music!
Do you use specific teaching methods or books? (Ex: Alfred, Bastion, Suzuki, Hal Leonard) Why did you choose them if you did?
I will be using the Arbans trombone method book, the Bordogni Vocalises, and various other methods to help teach depending on the students' needs. I also use some of my own excersices!
Have any of your students won awards or been selected for special honors? How have they succeeded?
Many of my students have made high chairs in local all region bands and have been selected for the highest awards given in their local bands.
What musical accomplishments are you most proud of?
I am most proud of my acceptance to the Bienen School of Music in Evanston where I study with members of the Chicago Symphony, Detroit Symphony, Cleveland Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, and Milwaukee Symphony.
Why did you choose your primary instrument?
My band director had us try out all the instruments and the trombone was the one I sucked at the least! It was really just pure luck!
Did you have a teacher that inspired you to go into music? How did they inspire you?
My first teacher showed me a love for music that I didn't know was possible and that love has always motivated me to share what I do with as many people as possible!
When will I start to see results?
You can begin to see results honestly after about a week! It all depends on how much you put in and are willing to learn. A week of fundamental, focused practice can show you results fast!
What advice do you have about practicing effectively?
Listen often to great musicians, and always be actively asking yourselves what you love about their performances! Let these qualities become active goals that allow you to stay focused over the course of your practice session.
