I've been teaching trumpet since I was a freshman in High School. My mother is a band director for Selma Middle School and frequently asks me to tutor students or conduct a group session. After High School, many private teaching opportunities opened up for me, including Hope Middle School, Red Wood Middle School, Clinton Middle School, as well as brass tech for Topsail High School and Clinton High School. I currently am under contract with Archer's Lodge High School as a marching band tech leading high brass and drill instruction as well as a few private lessons. Altogether, I estimate my teaching experience to be roughly 20+ private students, several hundred students in group sessions all over about 9 years.

I have a few different book options for my beginning students that help pave the way into the learning mindset. The choice of literature often depends on the student's perceived methods of learning. In other words, I try to find the approach that is the easiest to understand for the individual student.  I have found that my student's have a more enjoyable time when the material is more relatable, thus giving us the momentum to continue learning. For my instrumental students (guitar, piano, mandolin) we do start off with some introductory material that both the student and myself agree upon and eventually move our way out of the lessons books and into learning through other methods.  These other methods include sheet music, or they may focus on ear training and learning songs through other ways. For my vocal students, I focus little on teaching repetoire to them. Instead, I focus on teaching them vocal technique and ways to improve the quality of their voice. We will certainly learn songs during this process, but I believe the caliber of the vocal instrument and the singer's ear will go much farther for any singer than learning a lot of material. I teach how to properly support one's voice, how to avoid bad habits such as straining, and I spend time training my vocal student's musical ear. For ALL of my students, I do require they have an understanding of the fundamentals that can only be found in classical music. While I do want each student to learn the types of music they want to play (rock, jazz, blues, folk, etc.), they must learn the basics before they can truly understand these other great styles.

Each student is different, having different interests, goals, and musical backgrounds. I approach each student differently, catering to his or her particular needs. Each student is required to learn the basics and then I supplement the course of study with musical pieces that the student wants to play. This helps to keep the student motivated. I also encourage my student to participate in concerts and recitals as much as possible, as having a goal to work towards helps a student do better.

My choices in books and other resources for the student are based primarily on the students' individual goals, needs, and interests. Generally, I approach the subject matter with firm but relaxed expectations, giving the students freedom but also requiring them to pursue a specified goal. This may include allowing the student to take a break from a challenging piece if necessary, to let their mind calm down and refocus while they practice a different piece with different requirements. For guitar, I prefer the students to use Mel Bay's Chord Book, as it is still the best I have ever been able to find. As the student progresses, I work to assess their various tastes in music, and work towards that direction, while introducing outside material they may enjoy, with the intent of eventually having a recital.

  Music is my heart felt passion, and I thoroughly enjoy the oppotunities of sharing my musical knowledge and experiences with my students.  I am a degreed music teacher, who travels to teach in Raleigh and  surrounding areas including Knightdale, Wendel, Garner and Clayton.  I first began teaching guitar and piano during my music studies at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS. At the university and after receiving my degree in music education, I have taught and performed in various musical settings and venues which has included the genres of classical, jazz, blues, rock, folk and country. Besides teaching and performing, I also am a songwriter who writes songs for my group performances and teach my more advanced students songwriting. Instruments that I teach include guitar, piano, bass guitar, banjo, ukulele and mandolin.

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.
