My favorite piano method book for children is the Bastien Piano Basics Series. Alternately, I sometimes use the Faber & Faber Piano Adventures. For very young children (3-6) "My First Piano Adventure," a Faber publication, is my book of choice. For adults, I usually use Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course, though sometimes I skip method books and play pieces picked by the student. When teaching drums/percussion, my method books of choice are Standard of Excellence and Winning Rhythms.

 For me the most important thing is to keep the students motivated. If that is not the case they won't do their part when they go home to practice. Sometimes I explain the theory and practical use of some exercises that in the beginning look tedious or exhausting so that the students can have a bigger idea of how the structure of music is created. Clarinet and saxophone are melodic instruments. Most of the time they are like "lead vocals", but sometimes when playing in Jazz Band, Concert Band or Orchestras the lead instruments become part of the harmony. Preparing the musician as soloist or as part of an orchestra will help him or her to be the most efficient in any environment. That is my goal!

I have no hard strict rules when it comes to teaching, because every student is different and they all learn at different speeds in different ways. For brand new never-played-before students I have a couple different series of books to get started. For more advanced students, I'm open to spending on time on whatever concepts they most want to cover. I also have a broad repetoire of jazz and classical as well as modern pop, rock, and even country and TV Themes to select from if the student has a specific style or song in mind.

My teaching style is basically understanding my student's unique learning process and finding a balance between fun, new concepts, technique and practice. Acknowledging accomplishments is key in this process as it creates in the student a desire to progress in their instrument. Finding what inspires the students helps me to tailor my lessons to meet their needs and goals.

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.
