I typically use the Alfred books for young beginning students. In these books, children learn the geography of the keyboard and learn about the contours of musical notation and by the end are using both hands. For adults, as well as intermediate children and up, I prefer the Michael Aaron series for intermediate and beyond. For beginning adults I use the Aaron Musical Primer. I also use the Aaron Technic for advanced performers.

I have just graduated from college and there are colleagues of mine who have been in the teaching feild longer than I have. However, I have learned and solidified a good teaching technique and energy, making the process individual to the student. Two of my students have done very well in their NYSSMA exams in the past year. I have been mostly teaching in other's homes, although I have a studio space of my own in my university which is useful for teaching private students. I expect regular practice form my students and make them keep a chart of their practice hours per week. This helps them to better cultivate their goals and help them advance faster. Also, smart practice... splitting the phrases of the music to make each section clean, etc. ... is a good way to get a student rwally thinking about how the music should sound, and thus increasing their curiosity and passion for their instrument. I also want to stress the variation of the type of music a student plays... learning different compositions in many styles, be it baroque, romantic, folk, or even just rock songs, helps a student to have more fun learning and also become more musically rounded and intuitive. I also always encourage my students to listen to the pieces they are playing! This gives them a better understanding of the piece as a whole. I cannot encourage going to live performances and concerts enough. It can be a concert of any type of music, so long that it inspires my student to be more passionate about music! I also encourage my students to participate in competitions and recitals, as this opens their world and expands their knowledge about the musical world. I may be the teacher, but I love nothing more than my students talking about their own thoughts, opinions, and ideas with me, be it about playing, concerts, what they want to do with music, etc. This lets me know that my job is being well done!

I have been teaching since I graduated from Graduate School.  My students then consisted mainly of fellow performers - actors and dancers, mostly.  Now I teach a lot of younger students, from the age of 12 up, as well as adults.

I started giving lessons in High School.  In my last year at Berklee I worked as a teachers aid in their new Songwriting major, which stressed that students learn the technology needed for most musicians to function in a recording studio, and to learn the basics of multitrack recording, MIDI, and production.  After college, I moved to New York and worked as the assistant director of education for the Sam Ash Music Institute.  I was responsible for building the school curriculum.  I and a staff put together classrooms for private and ensemble lessons.  The following year I moved to LA.  One of my first jobs there was at Bryan Lee Music, a music store that offered lessons on most instruments.  I taught there for a year before landing a job at the Trebas Institute of Recording Technology in Hollywood, where I was a student advisor.  The next few jobs lead me to becoming a composer for film and tv.  I still managed to teach when my schedule was light.  I had students at the Burbank Music Academy, a School of Rock.  With all of this diversity, I can take a student wherever her or she wants to go.

I promise you, a lesson with me is never boring. I also promise, it will always be 100% educational and enjoyable. Like I have said, music is a joyful thing and a form of art that everyone can understand. With all of this in mind, I am still training you to have a select skill that very few possess. I am also realistic with our goals. If you don't want to become the next french horn superstar, thats fine. I am here for you to develop your skills in a craft in whatever capacity that means. If you want to be on the road with your rock band or if you want to be recording records in the comfort of your own home, sign up for lessons with me and lets get ready to have some fun and learn some awesome music!

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.
