I'm a passionate teacher with over 7 successful years of teaching experience. I began teaching voice, piano, guitar, saxophone, and drums as I completed my degree in Music Education and Composition.

It is important and rewarding for both me and the student to have a passion for their music and learning.  Because of this, it is important to me that each student sets their own goals.  I will encourage and help the students to set high but realistic goals that will bring them enthusiasm for the music.  I try to bring inspiration and a lot of guidance to each student.  And I love to have fun.

Instruments:

My approach varies depending on the student's skill level and chosen instrument, but for beginners I always try to get them familiarized with their instrument: teaching them the basics of reading music and how to navigate the different keys (or strings, etc.). From there I start teaching various musical concepts, the rudiments of music theory, and begin introducing them to different styles of music. When the student is advanced enough, I start having them run through my own custom designed technique and skill drills, and have them start selecting music that they would like to perform on their own. Once the student is comfortable with solo play, I gear lessons towards learning how to play in a group, soloing and improv, songwriting, forming a band, and making your own album. I use a combination of standard techinique manuals and my own teaching material that I feel covers some of the holes left by the books that are out on the market.

Instruments:

I am a recent graduate of the Berklee College of Music, where my primary feild of study was composition and business. My primary (what we called "principal" instrument) was my voice, though I also play piano and trumpet exceptionally and have accompanied many musicians of contrasting flairs throughout my studies. It is my firm belief that a true understanding of music comes from the knowledge of its theory, and my instruction, in addition to catering to all needs and styles and instilling that ever-so important passion for the medium, is rooted in the ability to fluently read and comprehend music.

Instruments:

I will typically begin with Alfred's Basic Piano Library book for piano students, as I believe that the best way to truly learn music is by playing songs instead of exercises designed to demonstrate techniques and concepts. Alfred's Piano Library offers exercises in the forms of music that increases with difficulty as new material and concepts are introduced to the student. With younger students especially, I always start with instructing the student on the basics of their instrument, such as the proper terminology, how the instrument actually produces sound, and proper maintenance. For children, I would encourage them to work towards recital performances and solo work, or to participate in bands. For adults, I would be flexible and open to what they would want out of the experience and encourage and guide them in their goals.
