Instruments:

I began teaching privately ten years ago and have had a varried studio with voice, violin and beginning piano students. I have had students ranging in age from three years to mature adult, all at very different levels of musical ability, and I have taught in the classroom in rural, urban and suburban settings.  From these experiences I have learned productive practicing is key, along with self-motivating strategies, to grow as a musician.  My studnts have fun while learning proper musical technique in student-tailored approaches.  I have had opportunities to create curriculum for beginning musician programs and therefore am apt to help grow a student to where he or she wants.  I focus on collaboration and on partnership to develop musically!

After I graduated college, I taught music at an elementary school for 3 years. I worked with individual students to prepare for auditions, in and outside of school. I have worked individually with middle school students preparing for competitions. I think it is important as a teacher to help build the student's confidence as a performer, as well as their skills as a musician.

Easy Piano Rock Songs: Six Rock Classics You Should Play On Piano

...the intro scare you away, this is still one of the great easy piano rock songs. Practice them first by “blocking” chords—play all the notes of the broken chord together, then break them apart into 16ths once you can navigate from one chord to the next. For instance, beats 1 and 2 (refer to the sheet music), are on a broken C chord.

How To Find The Motivation To Practice

...It’s as simple as setting long term goals and never giving yourself permission to stop pursuing them.   Record Your Progress   If you’re new to an instrument, I recommend recording one practice a month and monitoring your progress. Yes, embracing failure is important, but you’ve also got to celebrate successes in your musicianship, not matter how small. Listening back to your playing is good to do anyway because it shows you what you truly sound like and how you can improve. Software programs like Apple’s Garage Band are great for recording practice sessions in a quick and easy way.   Change Up Your ... Read More

Jazz Exercises for Saxophone: Intermediate Studies in 12 Keys

...Another Real Life Example of Playing in 12 Keys In my last blog, I referenced a couple of instances of real life playing situations where you need to be able to play in 12 keys. In the first example, I talked about how playing in 12 keys is so rooted in jazz, whether as a rite of passage from jazz veterans to young jazz musicians or as a necessity for playing with singers in any genre. The second example was a real life experience of mine that involved playing in a wedding band where they expected me to play ... Read More

Types of Trumpets: Keys, Size, History, and Performance Practice

...When you think about it, telling someone that you “play the trumpet” is kind of like saying that you “play the keyboard.” The statement could mean a number of things. A “keyboardist,” for instance, includes musicians who play the piano, the organ, the synthesizer, the celeste, or something else, and many play all of the above. Welcome to the life of a trumpet player. You’ve probably heard of the B Flat trumpet, the C trumpet, and the piccolo trumpet. But what do you know about the natural trumpet, and did you know that some trumpets used to have slides? In this ... 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.
