No matter what kind of music the student is interested in working on, I always begin lessons with breathing exercises since breath control is paramount to healthy singing in any genre. I then move on to vocal exercises to warm up the voice and to work on specific techniques that will later be applied to the music the student is working on. I like to let students bring repertoire they are interested in working on to lessons, although I am also happy to suggest pieces that are appropriate for the student's level and reflect their musical interests. I can also work with students on reading musical notation, sight singing, and music theory if they wish.

My teaching style comes from a love of music and family.  Every student I teach becomes part of a musical family that I've been a part of for over 30 years.  I take the time to get to know my students which makes me able to tailor their music education specifically to their needs and likes.  As a student progresses, I make sure that they realize the special work that they do and how it can impact their life.  Every student I teach is distinct in their abilities which means I have to customize my teaching to them.

I try to share my musical knowledge with my students.  I attempt to find the way to inspire students to find their way to pursue their musical studies.

Instruments:

For beginning students I typically start with an elementary band method (Yamaha, Hal Leonard's Essential Elements, etc..). We focus on basic tone production, finger technique, note reading, and playing simple songs. Once the student is comfortable we begin to work out of a duet book. This gives the student a chance to "perform" with me at each lesson, tends to accelerate progress, and is fun!  For advanced students we can focus on particular areas of interest. Whether jazz, classical or popular music is your focus, refining various aspects of tone and technique are always incorporated into the learning process. Basic music theory, rhythm, and chordal structure are covered as the student progresses into more advanced studies, including sight-reading, memorization (songs/solos), and jazz improvisation.

It is important to adopt a teaching style that is tailored to the individual needs of each student, especially because each student learns at their own pace. Setting goals is one of the first topics I discuss with my students, and then indicate some of the steps they need to take to achieve the goals that they set for themselves. Keeping track of a student's hours of practice and their musical achievements is beneficial for me to determine what new material and concepts to work on, and also allows the student to stay organized and motivated.

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.
