I think it's important for students to learn from all styles of music; but if they enjoy one style in particular, I believe it's important to study this style with them and help them to improve upon it. I love understanding what makes each individual unique; so I really listen to them and design a curriculum based on their likes; challenging them to appreciate all styles of music; and encouraging them to become fluent in various genres, time periods and methods. Sometimes, we start at the very beginning; sometimes; we continue the necessary building blocks of technique and artistry that contribute to making a well rounded artist.

For begining musicians I teach alot of tunes by ear. I generally have kids improvising before I teach them to read, similiarly to learning a language. Once they are able to grasp these concepts I will start bringing in method books and etudes. For my upright students I use simandl book 1 and 2, and for electric I have my own exercises to give students. My end goal is to give my students the basic funadmentals to succeed in most styles of music.

For young students starting piano lessons for the first time, I recommend either Bastien or Hal-Leonard method books. I also encourage the development of aural skills, rhythm, and note reading through games and listening assignments. I develop technique from the upper arm down, starting with muscles that are larger and easier to control. For adults, I cater my lessons and teaching to the needs of each student. I encourage being intellectually curious and experimental in approach to piano playing. To ensure that technical concepts stick, I always make sure that an evaluation about what image or physical sensation helped to incorporate new technical ideas. For students of all ages, I stress that the ears are the most important part of playing or listening to music. The skills I teach encourage life-long learning in my students without being boring! Playing the piano should sound and feel good!

With beginning band students I continue use of whatever band method book their band director is using in class. If the student is at an appropriate level I will add in a NYSSMA solo. If the student advances past his or her school lesson group then I will start them on a sequence of lesson books that prepare them for advanced High School level playing. When their rhythm coordination and sight-reading becomes affluent I start supplementing traditional instruction with both jazz/swing sight-reading material and beginning jazz improvisation studies.

Instruments:

I am aware of the many people that have a great desire to learn about music. I view it as a language. Once you are able to read write and speak (singing or playing) you are fluent in music. I graduated from the Eastman School of music in 1977 and have played in several bands and sung in a multitude of singing groups during my life. I have taught music in all its forms for 40 years. This is my calling. Most recently I am singing with the Reno Philharmonic Symphony Chorus. I have sung rock, folk, barbershop you name it. And I love it all.

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.
