I'm a patient instructor that allows each person to grow at their own pace. We all have a goal of what we want to achieve and I guide you toward that goal. My primary goal is to create great musicians- people who are versed in many styles and have a handle on music as a language. I want to share my knowledge to help you find your musical voice and the creativity you seek through the guitar.

My teaching is about empowering people with music. In my experience, telling students what to do is much more powerful than telling them what not to do. I believe that patience, encouragement, kindness, and humor are the best teaching accessories.  I believe that as a teacher I must listen and watch with just as much attention as I do when I instruct through demonstration or verbal direction. I keep verbal direction and explanations simple. Practice is essential to progress, so I work with the student/parents to create practice strategies that will keep work away from the studio fresh and engaging. When asked, I offer honest, professional assessment in regards to student progress and abilities.  I encourage them to pursue challegning goals that will raise self esteem, but avoid those that will likely lead to discomfort and disappointment. I believe everyone has a place to give and receive beauty and excitement in music. I do my best to help each student find that place.

I tailor each lesson to the unique self and stage of musical development of the student and actively create custom lesson plans and materials to best suit their progress and musical curiousities. Improvisation and rhythm games, music theory essentials, and instrumental basics are core components of my teaching practice.

Instruments:

I've loved playing piano since I was 4 years old, and I love to share music with others. I have a classical background, and a particular interest in contemporary music and extended techniques. I studied and performed piano at Colorado College, and as a graduate student at Mills College. I've had the opportunity to tour the world with the Bowed Piano Ensemble, an ensemble that focuses on extended piano techniques.

For beginning students I usually start with Hal Leonard's beginning guitar. But if they want to just play music, I will als teach them how to read tabs and chord charts. This enables the student to start playing songs right away. As the student progresses I will give them solo music pieces as well, songs and exudes to use for performance. Eventually, the student will progress to scales, soloing, and comping. I keep my students interest as the priority of the lesson. If the student is not having fun then I am not doing my job.

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.
