For my teaching goals I like to help my students learn the intstrument from the basic fundamentals. I believe music is like building a house and it is important to start with fundamentals in order to construct a strong foundation for musical knowledge. I like to teach proper technique and playing standards so my students will learn correctly and not have to go back and relearn things and relearn their technique. I like to theach them the correct way so they have the proper foundation to branch out and broaden their musical horizon. Every student is slightly different so I like to asess each student on their needs, goals, skill level, and preffered teacher's style.

As a kid, I grew up listening to all types of music, from soul, jazz, hip-hop, R&B, contemporary, and rock.  My mom introduced me to my first piano at the age of 6 and I was hooked.  Music became a part of my soul.  I had great teachers that continued to help me develop my skills and challenge me.  I started in classical, and soon found myself getting into jazz and contemporary; I was growing as a musician.  Music was becoming a passion.  While my friends were saving for a car, I was saving for a Yamaha Motif XF8.  I would spend hours in my basement producing and creating music.  I believe music can take you to places with no barriers and restrictions.  As the philosopher Nietzsche so appropriately stated, "Without music, life would be a mistake."

My experience as an educator began when I was a junior in High School, where I fast gained a reputation as an exceptional guitarist/singer.  During this time, a few of my friends and classmates asked me if I would teach them.  Since then, I have been teaching non-stop out of my residence and other creditable music stores.  From 2008-2010, I taught out of Avenue N. Guitars, while keeping my own private students.  From 2010-2012, I taught out of the House of Music in Orland Park, while also keeping my own private students. Currenlty, I am only teaching through creditable web-music-lesson companies for in home or out of my studio instuction.  Outside of my education experience, I also have real life experience as a performer, the greatest educator of all.  I have been performing in bands since I was 12 years of age, which is currently over 20 years of live performance experience.  During this time I have played various styles of music including, Rock, Psychedelic, Punk, Reggae, Ska, Metal, Blues, Jazz, Classical and a current blend that utilizes many of these forms.

First I think it is important to get to know the student and chat about what their intentions are musically.  Then I can customize a lesson plan for them which includes warming up, techniques, and repertoire.  I sometimes find it helpful to discuss of elements music theory, aural skills, and reading music depending on the students desires in those areas.  I strive to motivate students by picking material they are excited about.  If the student is not enjoying the music, it is time to make adjustments!

I began taking lessons when I was eleven years old and developed an excitement for music that has fueled my pursuit of excellence even today. Probably when I was 15 years old, I began teaching lessons to other saxophonists at my high school. During college, I taught lessons at the Illinois Math and Science Academy for 2 years. After graduation, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to begin teaching at Anderson Musik in Northbrook, IL, as well as at many of the Chicago-land high schools. Not only was I teaching private lessons, I was working with the Jazz Institute of Chicago in a two different capacities. First, as a jazz mentor, which was an 8-week program that focused on improvisation in Chicago Public Schools, and second, as a Kewitt-Wang Scholar Mentor, which students audition for a scholarship to study with the teacher of their choice. While in New York City, I worked with and continue to work with JazzReach, which is a jazz education program that travels all over the United States presenting multi-media concerts for young people about different aspects of jazz. I've also worked with Jazz @ Lincoln Center's Wee Bop program and have presented workshops all over the world with the Rhythm Road: American Music Abroad, which was also facilitated by Jazz @ Lincoln Center.

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.
