I provide direction and knowledge and the student has to put in the effort. I offer incentives for great work and the lesson is motivating and fun. I get out my instrument and we play duets together and learn together.

I have always loved teaching, and have garnered consistent praise from my students and mentors. With beginning musicians both instrumental and vocal, I like to balance an introduction to "proper" technique and music reading with a healthy dose of play (improvisation and composition - all musicians should have the opportunity to create!). With advanced classical singers, I have the experience to coach style, diction, and presentation, and I foster the student's ability to teach her/himself. I am particularly interested in working with non-classical singers. There are unique challenges to rock, metal, pop, and other non-operatic singing, and I enjoy working with these musicians to help foster an efficient, versatile vocal instrument.

All students learn at different paces and have different interests. I believe that it is important for a teacher to really tune in and learn about their student. That way, they are better informed to prepare lessons for that particular student. I encourage some parent participation and sitting-in during lessons to understand the basic concepts of what to practice and how to practice. Students should also be given a bit of leverage and autonomy when choosing music and what works for them.

I hope to emulate some of my great teachers including Robert Hurst, Cecil McBee, John Lockwood and others. Of course regular practice is necessary, but listening is also key to advancement. Besides regular warmups and technical workouts, I encourage every student to transcribe, sing and play along with music they like. My students will not only learn the ins and outs of their instruments, but also will learn to make their own music through improvising and composing.

For young and beginning vocalists, I will typically start with assigning and working on American Art song, spirituals, folk music, songs from 24 Italian Songs, and musical theatre repertoire. I tailor my choices to each student, as each student has a different voice and way of learning. For the more advanced or experienced vocalists, I will assign classical and romantic art song of different languages and operatic arias. Once again, my choices will be tailored to each individual student. I also am a strong believer in technique. All of my vocal students will be working on breathing technique. When you are a vocalist, your body is your instrument, and you must know how to produce sound correctly and healthily in order to be as successful as possible. As for pianists, my teaching ability is for beginner and intermediate students only. I truly believe that theory is a very important aspect of piano playing, and I will probably begin with a book that has a theory aspect to match the playing assignments, as I did with my past piano students.

...was interesting about it was discovering that the blues still sounds like the blues even when the harmony is removed. The blues progression is so strong that all you need is the rhythm. Speaking of the blues not needing harmony, you should practice all of the above in twelve keys. The blues progression is arguably the most important progression in jazz and probably one of the most important progressions in all of music. If you listen for it, you’ll hear it present itself in a lot of popular music. During the Bebop Era in the 1940s, learning songs in twelve keys became an essential... Read More

...name. Notes that sound the same but have two different names are known as enharmonic notes. The reason for this is because music is written in keys. The key a piece is written in will determine which notes are sharp or flat, and keys are based on their corresponding scales. Scales come in many different variations but for now we’ll just stick with major scales to keep things easy.

...secondary note you hear is another A an octave above A440. What’s an octave? Double the 440 vibrations per second from A 440 and you’ll get a higher A note of A880, which is an interval of an octave.     Intervals   Intervals are the differences between pitches. Understanding the relationships between pitches is the bedrock of music theory. Let’s get back to A440. When you play A440, the first secondary note you hear is A880, and the second note you hear is E660. E 660 is exactly halfway between A440 and A880. This is called a Perfect 5th, and it’s the most ... 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.
