I encourage my students to make progress at their own pace, but I always set goals so that progress can be tracked each week. Lessons cover technique, music theory, sightreading, aural skills, and improvisation--all of which build up the student's musicianship. I try to find something that inspires each student so that they become engaged in lessons and enjoy putting in the time necessary to become a better musician. I am a patient instructor with experience teaching students of all ages and I maintain good rapport with my students.

I began teaching over three years ago, after many years of playing instruments solo and in groups.  I teach in most styles of guitar, and also beginner piano and bass guitar.  I also love teaching music theory and consider it to be an essential part of any music lesson.  I taught extensively for a music store in New York and after returning to Madison recently, I am looking to continue my work as a music teacher.

For beginning piano students who are children, I typically start with the Alfred series, and supplement with basic vocabulary, flash cards, and ear training. At a first lesson, I assess the student's skill level and/or natural aptitude, then test for the most effective learning style (drawing, vocabulary, spelling, videos, games, hands-on with the piano, singing, clapping, etc.) At a beginner level for children, I believe the most important thing in music lessons is to make the lesson fun and engaging, and find the most effective way for the student to absorb the key concepts rather than push one set of books or method. We always get through the books as well, we just have more fun doing it if the child is engaged via other methods. For intermediate and advanced students in piano, I have a large repetoire of classical, jazz, pop, rock, showtunes, and musical theater pieces to help the student learn new music, styles, and grow their skill level. For beginning students who are adults in piano, I like to focus on bigger picture music concepts first because I think it's the most valuable. We focus on notes, chords, ear training, theory, and learn to play some popular songs with chord charts first, and then shift focus to reading music. This approach is often more valuable for adult students as I teach how to play popular songs and how to write songs first. This is often more enjoyable for a student who may not be interested in playing classical music. But I am flexible and open to whatever the student is interested in, regardless of ability or age. Recital performance for all students are optional and flexible. I believe that performing in front of other people, and the preparation aspect of performance is key if the student wants to perform, but there are so many other aspects of learning and appreciating music that last a lifetime without performing too, so that is always up to the student. For guitar, I teach basic techniques, strum patterns, chords, solo-ing, scales, and theory. You will be able to play popular songs, perform your own solos, and write your own songs on either acoustic or electric guitar. For voice, I teach basic techniques so you don't hurt your vocal chords, I teach how to increase your range and your power, how to warm-up your voice, good breath support, how to achieve good diction, and how to scream properly! I am not qualified to train vocalists interested in classical or operatic performance, only rock/pop/punk and musical theater. I can show you how to belt high and add rasp to your voice. I also teach how to riff, growl, and scream.

I am a drummer and percussion teacher who loves what he does.  It is important for people to know that I believe students can learn in a variety of ways:  From a book, by ear and by gaining experience as a performer in various venues.  I love to teach all ages of students.  I graduated in 1997 with an associates degree that focused on music theory and music history.  I have been performing since the age of 10 (which means I have been doing this for almost 30 years now and I try to bring all of those experience, as well as my long teaching experience to the table.  Besides being a drum teacher I have also been certified to teach staff how to work with people who have disabilities, and that teaching experience, while completely different from that of teaching drums, has helped me become a better over all instructor.  I have had much success on a regional and local level and during the 2000-2002 era, toured internationally with a group called "Gabriel's Harp".  I would love to bring all of this to your student, no matter what age they are or what goals they are looking to acheive.

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.
