Both of my degrees were in music education, although I did start a second masters degree in jazz studies. Since 1981, I've been teaching in several settings. I was a full time public school band director for four years, and have taught all the way to the college level and adults, teaching classes in jazz studies and private lessons on saxophone. I've done woodwind coaching as well as private teaching since 1985. I enjoy passing on what I have learned as, from experience, I know the pubic school directors do not have the time to give as much individual attention to the student musicians as they would like.

My passion for teaching is nearly as old as my love of playing music, which began the moment I bought my first album: John Coltrane's Blue Train. Every morning for four years, I caught a 6 a.m. bus to a liberal arts high school on the opposite side of Austin. Coltrane kept me company, and he still does today.  I went on to study jazz and classical music at the University of North Texas, graduating in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. I've performed in Austin, Dallas, New Orleans and beyond, playing jazz and popular music on saxophone and piano. I've also been teaching professionally since 2006. I've tried to preserve the sense of wonder I first felt on those bus rides, and I bring it with me to every lesson I teach.

I tailor my instruction to the needs and wants of the student because I am a strong believer that if the student is interested, they will stay excited about their instrument and be motivated to develop their skill. Goals are set for each student. It is a positive learning environment. I am a good motivator and the techniques used depend on the age of the student as different things motivate the various age levels. I want the student to be happy with and like playing their instrument.

For beginning students who have no experience on their instrument, I usually spend a fair chunk of time working on basic technique using books like the Essential Elements series or Greg Horne's similar books for folk instruments. I usually combine the book material with other songs/pieces relevant to each student's interests. For more advanced students, I usually find a mix of repetoire relevant to their interests and technical exercises for them to refine and develop technique.

It is my philosphopy that all people have the capacity to learn -- although not everyone learns at the same rate or in the same way. I believe in student-centric teaching meaning I try to find out what the student's goals are and then modify my curriculum to their unique learning style. No two lessons are the same!

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.
