My teaching experience dates all the way back in high school. Our director gave us the opportunity to teach small group as well as large group at times. It was this experience that set the stage for what I would be doing the rest of my life. I have taught all the way through my college years and then as a director of bands and orchestras. I am currently taking a brief break from teaching at the high school and middle school levels. I am currently intending on pursuing a doctorate. I encourage regular focused practice, even if it is for 5 minutes. I have found 10-15 minutes of focused practice produces better results than unfocused playing around. This is especially true of all middle school players. I tend to use a balance of classical etudes(for development) and modern(film score/popular/jazz) to keep a student interested. One of the first lessons I always teach is goal setting. This is one of the most important life building skills that I know and is applicable to every area outside of music.

I began teaching piano my sophomore year of college.  During my college career, I built up a studio of nearly 20 students, tutored college-level piano courses, and worked as a Teacher's Assistant in Sight Singing and Aural Training.  Since then, I taught for two years at a Summer Music Conservatory in Texas, led week-long keyboard intensive seminars throughout Western Kenya, and most recently, taught at the nation's largest piano conservatory.  I believe that lessons should be fun, fast-paced, and stimulate the whole child through a wide variety of songs and genres.  These are not your grandmother's lessons!

Instruments:

I am a very passionate musician who loves all aspects of music.  I love sharing music with others and with my students, and I like to instill a knowledge with deep appreciation of music.  Performing, composing, listening, and practicing are elements that I like to emphasize to students, while maintaining a fun and progressive attitude toward learning.  As a performer and composer, I have the most fun, yet as a teacher, I recieve immense satisfaction in opening the eyes and ears of musicians and students of all ages and levels.  With a degree in Music Education and studies in jazz piano, I feel that I have a wide background to bring to the studio for students.

Jazz Scales: The Diminished Scale

...The Diminished Scale Mathematically, there must be a finite number of scales, but scales seem pretty infinite to me. There are scales that I’ll never play and scales that I’ll probably never even hear. Even more so if you take into account cultures that use quarter-tones. Each scale connotes something different. This is unique to each person. When you hear a certain scale, you probably associate it with something. It could remind you of something you’ve heard before, or it could simply connote a certain feeling. The diminished scale is one of the defining sounds of jazz. I remember the end of my freshman year... Read More

Why Music Theory Still Matters for Musicians

...sheet music, but which can be done in a couple of seconds rather than a couple of hours.   Today’s musicians would likely refer to an A-440 tone as 440 Hz, to an ostinato passage as a “loop”, and to a loudness shift from forte to piano as a “break”. Does this mean that traditional theory is outdated? Not at all.   Why Traditional Music Theory Matters   To a large extent, Western ears still perceive music in a way that is largely in line with the teachings of traditional theory. When you hear an inexperienced singer hit a sour note and your ... 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.
