I love developing a strong personal relationship with my students throughout our time of learning. I have come through many lessons throughout my high school and college career where lessons were not fun. I want to make it as fun and productive as possible for the student, the student's parents (if they're sitting in on lessons), and love recaping the last couple minutes of the lesson. I love using metaphors and real-life situations and experiences for students to grasp a particular "problem spot" in a passage of music. This helps the student to get a visual advantage in order to grasp the problem and create solutions to them.

Every singer has a unique voice, and therefore every student must have a unique vocal plan of action tailored to fit their voice and personality. To this end, my goal is to always encourage the student's natural voice by applying a healthy and solid technique through a relaxed larynx, free and steady airflow, and active yet elastic support. The larynx should never be put under undue amounts of stress, and to achieve this, I believe in involving the abdomen, back, and sides to support the sound. The result is a warmer, more beautiful sound and a healthy singer. Other technique basics I teach include and open jaw, raised soft palate, and erect yet relaxed posture. I believe in choosing repertoire for the student that they enjoy singing and that will aid the student's current vocal progress. If the student loves singing the pieces, they will practice more and develop their voice faster! For my young piano students, we start with the John Thompson Easiest Piano Course. We begin by identifying the notes on the keyboard and very simple rhythms then slowly integrating the notes on the keyboard with the written notes on the staff, building up from middle C. For my adult students, we learn from Alfred's Basic Adult Piano course. However, if the student has already found a course they enjoy and feel comfortable with, I am always flexible with the required materials. The most important thing is always finding what method works best for the pupil, tailoring the lessons to suit the pupil's needs, and making learning piano fun!

Yes for teaching piano I use Nancy and Randall Faber's books. I have used all of them. For guitar and mandolin I generally do not use a "book". As the lessons progress I might introduce a book if that is what is called for. All orchestral instruments call for the structure of a book and I augment that with my own explanations. This is true for all ages of learners. For singing, at first, I concentrate of vocal formation and physical posture before and songs are introduced. Then we choose music that the learner is excited about. Fun is always the important aspect.

My first teaching experience was out of necessity. I resisted the concept of being a teacher. Not because I hated teaching, but because I had other things I was trying to accomplish. Yet, time and again I would be involved with a theatrical production that required the actors I was working with to play drums. So it was up to me to teach. I found a natural connection with people who were just starting out on drums. For me, playing the drums did not come easily or quickly. I remember the struggles I faced as a beginner. I want my students to avoid this. We will all struggle at some point in our musical journey, this is the nature of learning. What I do best is help students past that particularly rough time of just starting out on a musical instrument. I help the student find their LOVE for playing. Once you LOVE playing your instrument, you will never stop playing and you will not view practicing as a bothersome task to get done, but rather, it will feel like a deep desire to play.

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.
