I have experience teaching my peers and lowerclassmen. My goal is to improve form and technique while learning a repetoire that the student greatly enjoys.

I began teaching guitar privately when I was in high school and have continued instructing students ever since. After moving to Madison in the fall of 2013 I have found several new students to teach and have very much enjoyed working with them. I have over 13 years of experience playing guitar which includes classical, acoustic, and electric guitar. I emphasize technique and musicianship in lessons, which may include reading music, music theory, phrasing, ear-training, and much more. I individualize lessons as best as I can for each student. I communicate with my students to understand what it is that they want out of lessons and tailor a lesson plan to accommodate those goals.

I have found nothing in my professional life more satisfying that developing lasting relationships with my students.  Watching someone grow in their ability to play music, especially music they love, is an experience that is second to none.  I will help you become the musician you long to be, and hopefully point you in some new and exciting directions along the way.  We embark on this journey together, and no matter where we end up it will be a wonderful ride getting there!

My approach as a teacher is all about the student's needs. I believe very strongly that in order to develop a long-lasting appreciation and skill for music, the student needs to learn at his or her own pace and using methods and choosing songs to learn that engage the student the best. I like to have fun so my students and I usually end up laughing quite a bit! My schedule is flexible so I'm often able to work with the student longer than the scheduled time, so we can have fun and keep learning as long as I'm able to stay and as long as the student is engaged. This makes it more fun for both of us. (note: I don't charge extra for staying late with a student because of this) I also like to incorporate music theory and ear training whenever I can regardless of the instrument, because it sets the foundation for the student being able to write their own songs in the future. I am a writer myself and I think giving students the tools to write their own music is a wonderful gift that helps express creativity, inspires confidence, and lasts a lifetime.

I have been teaching drums off and on while maintaining other work for almost 20 years.  While other teachers may always say "Practice makes Perfect" I say something different. "Practice makes permanent".  For me, this means that yes, if you practice something every day you will get better at it - but what if you practice it wrong!  That is why I have an open call/door policy.  I would much rather a student call me and say "I don't think I am doing this right" and let me re-explain something instead of them just to continue practicing it wrong - once you practice something 7 times it is usually in their for good.  If someone does a technique wrong for 7 months, it will probley take me 17 to fix it and break the habit.   I use several books for my students but two of my favorites are both written by Louie Bellson. "Modern Reading Text in 4/4 time" and "Modern Reading text in odd-time"  - They are different books than most use, and I use them especially for my jazz students but I have fount them to be invaluable.  I have also used Hal Leonard's material.  I try to incorporate listening to music as much as possible, videos and anything else I think a student of today might be interested in.   I focus strongly on rudiments and fundimentals with beginning students but also incorporate those right away into what every style they wish to learn.  You'd be amazed at what a "Flam-Tap" can do while learning a Metallica song.

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.
