I also received a full scholarship to attend the Rubin Institute for Music Criticism. I earned my Masters of Fine Arts in Vocal Performance from the University of California, Irvine at the Claire Trevor School of the Arts where I sang the National Anthem for President Barack Obama at the school’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. At UC Irvine, I received critical acclaim for my portrayal of Euridice in Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice, and as the Soprano in Pergolesi's Stabat Mater. Read More

For my younger piano students, I am a fan of the Faber and Faber piano books. The method books applies to my philosphy of teaching rhythm in syllables (ta, ti-ti, etc.) and found success with all my students in their abilty to read notes and play well. I also love their arrangements on their jazz, rock and roll, and popular series. I also try to include composition in their learning to make it fun and challenging. Read More

Instruments: Guitar Drums

My methods are in service of the cultivation of interest. Mainly I want the student to focus on learning how to play the music they want to play. The key to cultivating interest is to nurture the social, communicative and fun elements of playing music; associating the laughter and exhilaration with learning. I'm a self taught musician - I know that music is intuitive enough to learn without getting overly text-book about it, and I think focusing too much on the book at an early age can turn away potential musicians.

Instruments: Drums

The best way to First expose them to these is to prepare them for a recital and an accompanying piece or two. This is another topic that I would like to help students prepare for; it could be anything from an Allstate jazz band, pieces for school concerts, or just preparedness for live performance. I want to be able to keep a student interested in their studies, whilst giving them the tools to open up their musical knowledge and vocabulary. Read More

I have been teaching from a young age in The Netherlands as a independent private instrcutor, where I had the experience of teaching young students from as young as the age of five. As I got more experience, I was able to start teaching at the Centre of Young Musicians, where I would lead dedicated young musicians in a Jazz combo. Read More

Instruments: Violin

Most importantly, I believe every student is different and I always try to avoid a "one size fits all" approach to teaching. That said, I'm a big advocate of scales, etudes, and technical exercises, as well as exploring repertoire (solo, chamber music, and symphonic). I encourage students to listen to a wide variety of music, in addition to their work on the violin, sometimes with weekly listening assignments. Daily, systematic practice at home is required of all my students (especially younger ones) for clear progress to happen. Read More

Instruments: Piano Guitar Voice Keyboard Electric Guitar Acoustic Guitar

The feeling of making something I was playing sound exactly like what I heard on the radio was like a superpower to me growing up! And so I think it's my job to try to get my students to have that same feeling as they are beginning their musical journeys. I do this with a combination or learning how to read music and learning to play by ear. I enjoy emphasizing playing by ear because I think that makes music more accessible to beginning musicians, so developing their ability to hear music and know what it going on is an important skill that I work on with my students.

What advice do you have about practicing effectively?
Organize well the time you have available for your daily practice; use the clock! Divide the time you have, the number of exercises you need to do. Remember to organize your week well, write your targets for the week or period in a notebook, and breakdown your targets for the time you have at hand. For example, if in a week you have to study the major scale in all the keys, with attached arpeggios, divide this work across 7 days. Make sure you have time every day to repeat what you learned the day before. Remember that in a daily practice you have to face different points and you must also find the time to play freely. Do not be scared, if you organize yourself well, you can do everything. In class, I will help you set up your work at home.

If you have a Music Degree, what is it in (Performance, Education, Musicology, Theory, Composition, etc) and why did you choose that degree?
My Music Degree is in Jazz Music and Modern Music. I also studied Piano and Composition. I have always played live since I was 16. I first played Rock music and then Funk and R & B music. Later I fell in love with swing and jazz and all its contaminations.

Did you have a teacher that inspired you to go into music? How did they inspire you?
Yes, I was lucky enough to study with many musicians, many of them were very famous (as you can read from my CV), others were less known but equally important in my journey. Each of them taught me something different. The rules are fundamental but it is more important how you use them in your own language. That's why every musician is different from one another. The teachers helped me to see the different aspects and above all, they transferred to me their love and respect for music. I think I was lucky, but I also think this happened because I wanted to learn how to play jazz

Why did you choose your primary instrument?
I chose the saxophone because I was fascinated by the sound, I listened to Sonny Rollins and I wanted to play like him.

If you weren't a musician what do you think you'd be doing instead?
I would have been a Chef. Cooking is a journey between creativity and flavors, in which everything is possible. It also has many similarities to the world of music in that is has a lot of creativity to it.

When will I start to see results?
The results are directly proportional to the student's interest in music. I had a Chinese student who wanted to learn at all costs, starting from almost zero and in a couple of months, with a frequency of two hours a week. He started improvising jazz - at a good level for a neophyte - with a good timing and an intoned sound. The student practiced every day and followed the lessons with a lot of interest. It depends on the student's ability and willingness to apply themselves. The teacher has the task to push the student and stimulate him/her, the student has the task to participate in the lessons actively studying and preparing for lessons.

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.
