My main goal is to give each student the tools to be successful on their own. This is important because most progress is made outside of the lesson. This includes music reading and general knowledge of the music. I feel that success comes from the student feeling that THEY have accomplished something.

I love music!  It is fun, it is passionate, it is serious, it is Godly, it is ungodly, it is mysterious, it is profound, it is simple, it is complex, it is creative, it is skill, it is expressive, it is impressive.  I am a professional musician living in the Chicago area - I teach oboe, piano, guitar, and saxophone.  I am very blessed to be able to do this, and I try to remember that every day.  Music is a gift, and it should be invested in - I try to do that, and I try to motivate my students to do that and give that gift back to others as well.

Every student is unique in their ability level, dedication to the instrument/craft, et. al; therefore, I cannot expect that every student will be the next Larry Combs. I do, however, expect that every student take their responsibility for practicing each week, coming prepared to lessons, and being a good student. In lessons, I am kind and personable as anyone should be, but I like to make clear my expectations right from the beginning. I remain supportive of the student's progress every step of the way, and the growth is not just about the student, it's about the collective - if both parties put in their ten cents, amazing things can happen, and it's rewarding when these experiences occur!

Every musician has some strength which can be developed and built upon. In some students it can be recognized as talent. In others it is enthusiasm and dedication to study and improve. It can also be curiosity and the joy in discovering new ways to express oneself. I love finding my students where they are and helping them toward mastery of their craft. A good music teacher listens. And listens. And listens. From the first lesson I am very interested to hear where the student is in their own practice. (Not even complete beginners are the same; everybody has a unique perspective and personality that informs how they "speak" in music.) The next task is to hear where the student wants to go. How much, how fast, and how far are they are willing and able to work toward their personal goal? These questions are the starting point of every relationship. It is also the starting point of every session. In lessons, I listen to the student progress through warm ups, exercises, and repertoire. Each of these three elements - warm ups, exercises, and repertoire - can be used for instruction and encouragement.

With teaching students, I like to start them out with Dozen A Day as this helps warm up their fingers and hands to get ready for the music in their lesson. After that I will start them on going over the name of the notes that are on the piano as well as the scales. I like to work with them on the basics such as the note values, the different music symbols such as the treble and bass clefs, what is on each measure of music. When starting them out on music I like to teach from beginner books such as the ones I grew up with that will have some little tunes that they can learn as well as go along with teaching them the basics and what each note means and represents.

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.
