Learning to perform and understand music is a difficult journey, but one which also reaps great rewards. Performing great music with a skilled ensemble for an appreciative audience is, in my opinion, one of the great joys of life. Unfortunately, beginners are easily frustrated by their lack of facility on their instrument. I believe the teacher must guide the student toward positive practice habits including daily listening and performing, give the student unwavering support and encouragement, provide a judgment-free learning environment while also providing constructive feedback, and most importantly, be a musical role model.

While I finished my undergraduate degree, I taught piano and music theory to children in my university's community music program  After graduating, I launched my own private studio, and taught both children and adults both piano and voice lessons.  I have helped the youngest learners discover the joy of making music, prepared high school students for college auditions, and prepped local actors for upcoming performances in musicals. I have also taught group music classes to newborns, and helped elderly BEGINNERS (yes it's never too late to start) realize their musical potential. I also write pop music and instrumental piano solos pieces for local performance and have two EPs to my name.

I am a huge music enthusiast, and love almost every discipline from classical to pop. I am primarily a classical pianist, and I have been taking lessons for about 10 years from an adjunct professor at Tulane University, but I also enjoy playing jazz/blues and pop. In addition to playing, I compose many of my own piano pieces, as well as create arrangements of popular songs and produce music electronically. My musical education at Tulane University includes music theory, advanced harmony, jazz theory, choir, and music digital sound processing.

For begining students I like to start from a foundational stand point.  It is very important to enstill good practice habits and technique in order not to develop bad habits in your playing.  For drumming and other instruments, starting with rudiments, learning how to read music, and playing scales are a great way to help a student build their technique and ear up.  I think it is really important to ask what kind of music the student is into or show them how the foundational basics can be used in an actual playing situation instead of just a boring regimented routine.  With more advanced students, furthering a students development and introducing more challenging concepts is what I focus on teaching. With drumming, I like to incorporate concepts such as polyrhythms, an understanding of different genres, improvisation, and ear training.  For students that are preparing to pursue a degree in music, I can help them prepare for an audition because of my experience of being a college music student in the past.

  My approach is hands-on. Lessons are structured with free-play and ear-training to warm up. This is followed by 15-25 minutes studying methods and etudes. The last ½ hour or so is dedicated to solo or performance repertoire. I work to cultivate an atmosphere of safety. ‘Mistakes’ are expected, it’s more important that the student plays with conviction; we can clean it up later. I encourage participation in ensembles, competitions, and recitals with the focus on participation, not perfection. I foster good sportsmanship and a non-judgmental environment so the student will feel safe in giving and receiving constructive criticism.

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.
