For beginning and intermediate clarinet and saxophone students I like using the Yamaha Advantage books. For beginnig piano students, I use Faber and Faber's Piano Adventures. I like to use these lesson books and supplement with solo and duet material. I always encourage my students to bring in material they'd like to work on, from school band music to popular tunes they are interseted in learning. I think it is important for all aspiring musicians to collaborate with others and make sure to play along with students in our lessons. I ask my students to plan their practice time each week, as I know how busy we all are!

My teaching approach is to match repertoire to the student's current needs. For example, a student who needs to work on building dexterity will be working on technical exercises while another student may be focusing on tone or dynamic expression in their weekly exercises. I typically start my beginning piano students with the Alfred's piano series in conjunction with the Finger Power series for building technique. For more advanced students, I prefer to use the Hanon Virtuoso Pianist series as well as scale practice and classical repertoire. New flute and violin students will start with the Essential Elements series or for more mature beginners, the Rubank series for flute and the Suzuki series for violin. Duet books will also be added as the student grows. On the other hand, if a student comes to lessons having already begun a series of repertoire they prefer, I will be happy to accomadate. I believe the most important part of teaching is to tailor each lesson to the individual student. What works for one student may not work for another, and it is essential to be open to new teaching methods and grow with one's students.

I teach because I love it. My style of teaching largely aims to deepen the student's appreciation for the arts and to impart my own love of music onto them.

I will use whichever book students are using for their band class in addition to Rubank books. I will begin by teaching fundamentals using these books, then I continue to teach solo repertoire.

My approach to teaching has always first and foremost been to tailor my instruction to a student's enjoyment but to have set goals so they can see their own musical growth.  I find it most important to be able to read notes and will individualize this process in any way I can, so that it is not a challenge, but a fun way of showing students how it opens them to appreciate music even more.  I have also found it important to modify instruction to a student's needs especially if it inspires them to learn!

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.
