For beginning and intermediate students, I like to assign short pieces from method books such as Student Instrumental Course and Rubank. For more advanced students, I will help them explore their particular interests, introduce them to traditional repertoire, and for jazz/rock/pop students, aid them in the process of transcribing the music they love, which benefits their vocabulary as well as their ears. In developing a complete musician, I want to offer support for my students' other musical activities, as well as provide them with resources that they might not have elsewhere.

I am a passionate and patient instructor who loves to help students find joy in making music. I believe that developing a methodical way of practicing and thinking about music reading, tone production, and creating rhythm is the key to unlocking students' abilities to enjoy the music they produce. In 2008 I graduated from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Music Education degree. During my ungraduate years I studied classical saxophone with Dale Underwood and was selected as a soloist with the university's concert band on two occassions. I was also a member of the school's jazz ensembles and began to study improvisation. Between 2008 and 2013 I taught classes and lessons, mostly classical in nature, but also played regularly in jazz ensembles around Washington DC. I honed my improvisation skills through attending Barry Harris' Jazz Workshop in NY and recieving lessons from the great Lee Konitz. I've had the opportunity to play with many formidable members of the jazz community, both old and young, and have performed at many venues. You can view my website for the particulars, along with samples of my jazz improvisation and free improvisation.

For beginning students, I like to focus for the first few weeks on playing scales and songs without written music, and I continue to incorporate learning by at any level.  When I begin using written music I use the Accent on Achievement method (I am also comfortable with other standard elementary methods and would be happy to use whatever method a student's band director is using), which is a good place to start whether or not the student already reads music.  For adult students who are just beginning, I recommend the Universal Method, which covers absolutely everything.  Once the student has worked through the fundamentals we can begin introducing solo repertoire in whatever style the student is most excited about.

Of course, every student is different, and an integral part of my philosophy involves getting to know each student so that I may learn their creative preferences, strengths, and weaknessness. I do not shy away from books, I do indeed enjoy working out of the Hal Leonard collection because I appreciate the step by step structure. This may apply less to guitar, however, if the student's primary ambitions are to learn songs by Green Day or The Beatles, etc. Jazz music has its own rather extensive work load, which differers greatly from classical and rock, but I hope very much to put my qualification in this realm to good use very soon. Typically, I like to break the lesson up with a healthy balance of techique (scales, chords, etc), interpretation (etudes, pieces), and creativity (free play, improvisation, composition, etc.)

Since 2009 I have been teaching young musicians as a middle school band director in the Cambridge Public Schools. Prior to joining the Cambridge Public Schools, I was a band director, for three years, in the School District of Philadelphia.  In addition to a busy teaching schedule, I have extensive experience performing as a trombonist and am currently the Solo Trombonist for the New England Brass Band.  My most influential trombone teachers include Matthew Vaughn, Associate Principal Trombone of the Philadelphia Orchestra; Don Lucas, internationally renowned trombone soloist and Chair of the Brass, Woodwind, and Percussion Department at Boston University; and Ian Bousfield, former Principal Trombone of the Vienna Philharmonic and London Symphony Orchestra.

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.
