I'm a passionate and patient instructor who loves sharing the joy of music with others.  Be it teaching a student chords, riffs and songs, or playing and performing with one of my bands, I'm constantly striving to grow as a musician and teacher.

Instruments:

I teach using a set of core principals which allows my students to gain control and understanding of the fundamentals of drumming, and more importantly, music.  I work with my students to create short and long term goals, and I construct specific lessons based on these goals.  I regularly learn songs that my students love, and use these songs to teach core concepts and create exercises that are specific to the students interests.  This method of teaching fuels motivation and makes lessons fun, while also providing a solid musical foundation.

Guitar- From playing melodies, fingerpicking, strumming chords, reading music, and tuning your instrument- your instructor will guide you step by step.  Students use the Hal Leonard method book to start, which is a great book for introducing basic guitar techniques and methods.  As the student advances more materials and techniques will be supplied to the student, or continue using the method books.  Styles taught are rock, blues, metal, folk, classical, jazz, country and everything in-between.  Drums:  For students who want to ROCK!  Drumming is a perfect way to get active and distracted students engaged and interested in the world of music.  Students will learn basic rock/dance/jazz beats, marching cadences, musical symbols and notation, solos, and much more.  The book used, Basic Drumming by Joel Rothman, is a wonderful book that will last for 3 years of lessons and beyond.  Your teacher will take you from beginner, to intermediate, to advanced, and help you learn the style and genre of music you like best. Ukulele: Ukulele is a perfect instrument for children who are eager to explore the world of music but might not be ready for a larger instrument, or for those who love the unique sound it creates.  The ukulele has recently become quite popular and is featured in many styles of new music.  Students will use Hal Leonard method book as well as other music supplied by the instructor.  The "Uke" helps students learn coordination, rhythm, and melody- all while having fun and learning songs.

Growing up with multiple educators in my family has had a huge impact on my life as a volunteer in classrooms.  My volunteer experience began when I was in fifth grade, and has continued throughout all of my education experience at Concordia.  As I kept growing into a stronger individual, I discovered that the age group I wanted to work with also grew older with me.  Working in multiple classrooms throughout my life has only strengthened my resolve to be a teacher because of the communities I have discovered through volunteering.  Encouraging regular practice is one of the key components I like to emphasize for younger students, as it tends to help the strudent progress and gain a passion for the instrument.  If a student isn't having fun in their lessons, then I'm not doing my job!  My students are encouraged to enter competitions and recitals, as well as work on composing their own material.  I look forward to working with all new students!

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.
