Teaching is not just what I do, it's part of who I am.  I gave my first lesson before I knew that's what I was doing: I was just a high school senior helping a handful of freshmen navigate their first classical and jazz repertoire, but even then, I knew I loved seeing that joyous breakthrough when a student plays something -- a musical passage, maybe just one note -- that sounds beautiful. I began teaching professionally during my second year at the University of North Texas, assisting middle school students take those first steps toward understanding their instrument. As I progressed as a saxophone and piano player, I taught high schoolers and adults in jazz improvisation and prepared classical repertoire, and continue to do so today.

My teaching experience dates back to my college days during my sophmore year giving private lesson to children in the surrounding community. I did not relaize the joy of teaching until one of my students performed. Currently two of my high school students have received scholarships for college towards their education. As a educator this is the proudest I ever been in having students major in music and receive scholarships. Being a music teacher gives me such job and I would not trade it for anything.

No matter the age or experience level of the student, I like to get them playing steady, complete sounding music within the first month. It may sound a little daunting at first, but I truly believe anyone is capable of playing music. For the beginning guitarist I typically use Hal Leonard method books, for the beginning pianist, the Alfred series. For the advanced levels I use (and have used myself) the Berklee Guitar Method and for piano, either the Easy Classics to Moderns series or First Lessons in Bach. When I teach double bass I start with the Progressive Repertoire series of method books. For the more advanced double bassist I teach the techniques of Simandl, Rabbath and common orchestral excerpts. I am very fond of teaching solo repertoire for the bassist, such as Eccles, Dragonetti and Bach.

PIANO STUDENTS: For beginners, I prefer the Bastien series. I like a lot of variety but am very careful to not give too much at once. It is better to become excellent at each thing slowly, than try to do a lot and not be that good at any of it. I am a stickler for starting out with scales and theory right away. Understanding rhythm right  away is of utmost importance as well. I ALSO TEACH IN PATTERNS & NUMBERS over just notes, this way, one can play any piece in any key much easier! I will paint mental pictures that will help my students to never forget what Im teaching. (Oh and they will BEGIN using both hands). For more advanced students, again, the more variety the better. Depending on what the student’s goals are, I will draw from a wide range of selections.  I always make it a point to show my students how to play by ear AND by sight. When you know how to do both, the possibilities are limitless! If a student is wanting help learning how to write a song, that is my specialty as well. I have helped a LOT of people perfect their material.     VOICE STUDENTS: After discovering the students strengths and/or weaknesses, I custom create a series of vocal exercises & songs to help develop their talent. I first offer the student the chance to select which songs they want o learn and make their own. If they dont know which songs they want to learn, after learning the students interests and musical inspirations, I will suggest songs to work on, then teach them step by step how to make the songs their own and perform them with confidence and excellence.

The more exposure I've had to teaching, the more I have grown to love the challenge and opportunity that comes with sharing my passion for music with others.  In the past few years, I've had students as young as 7 and as old as 55.  In each case, I've been careful to craft a curriculum that meets the interest and ability of each student.

How To Write a Pop Song

...remembers. The chorus is the part of the Pop song where we get to be louder, more energetic, less restrained. If you’ve written an engaging verse, the chorus should come naturally. Key changes, higher vocal melodies and catchy hooks are good ways to deliver energy to choruses, but it’s not always that simple. Every song is unique and should be treated as such. Invest time in playing around with different chord progressions and you’ll begin to see where a verse is naturally headed. A good chorus is a departure from the verse, but not enough of a change that it distracts from the... Read More

Not only would it hold his attention for much longer, but he would also learn from watching and observing other children.   I have taught music classes for children as young as 0 years old.

If you live in an apartment, have roommates, or are a parent wary of living with loud drumming, smaller, lighter drums are clearly recommended when choosing your first drum set.   Space and volume restraints lead many to consider an electronic drum set. Some teachers may discourage this- as the subtleties of achieving good tone on the drums are a bit lost, and they generally do not ‘feel’ like real drums- but I believe it ... Read More

Where Can I Take Music Lessons?

... Deciding where you choose to take music lessons can vary from person to person, whether the lessons are for an adult or for a child.

Must Have String Instrument Accessories

...All violins and violas will have a hard case. Some are very basic, and some much more elaborate. For a beginning student, the basic hard case is more than satisfactory, and will keep the violin or viola safe as it travels. Cellos and basses can come with a hard or soft case. Most beginning students, with student level instruments, will come with a soft case. This helps the student to transport the instrument, but it is important that they learn how to handle it while traveling and storing. String instruments are delicate, and it is important that the student knows how to manage the instrument as to not damage it. Hard cases for cello and bass ... Read More

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.
