Instruments:

Structurally, my teaching methods revolve around the Piano Adventure series of instructional workbooks. I use the workbooks as a springboard into my personally developed educational plan that emphasizes rhythm and ear training. After a solid foundation of basic musical theory has been established, I begin to find out what the student is interested in and guide my instruction accordingly, as to keep the lessons fun and engaging. I welcome each experience level and musical background.

I use a very concise methodology in my instruction. I evaluate the students level, from there I make a step by step guide (of selected piece and etudes) to show the student their progress into the next level. I also encorperate ideas in theory, history, and ear training. Also if the student has yet to learn how to read musical notation. that will be taught along side with regular instrumental lessons.

Instruments:

Learning should be fun for everyone!  My main question to beginning students is: Why do you want to learn to play the piano?  I believe keeping my lesson plans in line with a student's particular passion for music is the key to success.   For younger students, I like to use the Leila Fletcher piano books, unless they (or their parents) express a preference for another lesson series.  For adults, the lesson books I prefer to use, if any, will vary by what the student wants out of their piano lessons. I love to talk about music theory and try to incorporate that into my lesson plans for all ages.  I also incorporate some ear training, as that is an important skill for every musician to develop.

Instruments:

For the beginners,  hold a correct gesture, good hand position, or firm embouchure, and air support are some of the main requirements. When the students start to learn, adding up more etude books, like Rubank Method, Rose Etude, Kell, Thompson, Byer, Just the Fact, Sonata, Concertos, Etudes...., and music from different genre would be presented at different timings. During the lessons, fine hand positions, great tone quality, good embouchure, fine posture and position would be the fundamental requirements and will be reminded at all time. Making progress in technique, playing habit, and also looking for fun in playing are what we will have between start and end of the lessons.

I recently finished my studies to receive my Bachelor of Music in Music Therapy degree from Sam Houston State University. At SHSU I gained experience working with a variety of clientele including those diagnosed with autism, dementia, traumatic brain injury (TBI), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and spina bifida. I also provided live percussion music with the Creative Movement Program with the dance department at Sam Houston State University. I hope that in the near future I can own my own private studio where I can host music lessons and music therapy sessions.

The Saxophone in Pop Music: 1950s to Today

...Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, the Bee Gees, and many more achieved that sound that is now synonymous with the 70s by utilizing full horn sections (3-5 horns). Bands like Tower of Power had even bigger horn sections. In addition to being an ensemble instrument, the saxophone was featured as a solo instrument on many recordings throughout the 1970s. Perhaps one of the most well-known saxophone solos of all time was Phil Woods’s solo from Billy Joel’s 1977 recording “Just the Way You Are”. Clarence Clemons was a permanent fixture in Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. 1980s... Read More

It’s a good idea not to rush the melody-writing process, so take your time, try out lots of ideas, and you’ll start to see what sticks and what doesn’t. Things like good phrasing and interesting syncopation can help make melodies more memorable elements of a song, and creating music that’s memorable should be the goal of any good songwriter.

Mixing Basics: Intro to Audio Mixing

...listening to a recording in headphones, that each headphone has different levels of each instrument. This spatial positioning of tracks creates room in each speaker for each track so that similar instruments do not dominate each other. It also creates the perception that a band is actually in front of you, with certain instruments to your right and others to your left. While the practice can be used for a number of interesting effects, like creating the impression that a sound is passing in front of you, it is most commonly set in the same manner that a band would appear.

Easy Ear Training: Tips for singing Harmony

...see which part feels more comfortable. The problem that you may run into is when the song changes chords you may catch yourself singing the melody. If you’re not used to singing harmony it’s a very common mistake to fall into singing the lead line. You should know your part like it is the lead line. When you practice make sure you know your line perfect. Let it sink into your whole body. It should resonate within yourself. You should feel your part “fit” in between the other two parts (if you’re singing three part). Another problem that many harmony singers face is if they are singing the low part they ... 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.
