Several performances at saxophone conferences

Overview:

I’ve been playing saxophone for over 10 years and it’s my favorite thing to do! I completed my Bachelor Of Music Education at Eastern Michigan University in 2017 began my Master Of Music in Saxophone Performance at The University of Arizona the next year. I’ve performed all over the country and love to share my music with everyone. I have played as a soloist, quartet member, and wind band throughout the Midwest and have performed and presented at several NASA conferences (both regional and national).

EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching privately since my undergraduate studies. Private teaching became not only a way for me to test myself, but transfer what I have learned to passionate young musicians. Not only have I taught through my own private studio, but I have helped build private lesson programs at schools in Michigan. I love sharing and discussing music with students; by teaching I have the opportunity to get kids interested in music and saxophone in ways they never thought possible. Not only that, but they teach me as well!

METHODS USED

Private lessons are tailored to the needs of each individual. In general, we will focus on tonal and technical development through scales, repertoire, long tones, and other exercises. We will use etudes as well as pieces to learn about history and music theory. Students will work on not only their performance skills, but aural development as well. I also encourage listening to other performers in addition to time spent practicing. Students will want to document their progress through a practice journal and recordings. This way, they can see and hear just how much they’ve progressed!

LESSON STYLE

As mentioned before, lessons will be geared towards the needs and interests of each student. It’s not enough to just work on the “fun” things that we’re good at! I like to work with a goal oriented mindset. For example, we may say “I will be able to play my scales in sixteenth notes at 90 BPM by the end of the year” or “I will be able to perform this piece on an upcoming concert”. Having clear goalposts set can allow us to better pace our practice instead of cramming or front loading. Each time we take out the horn, we are focused on what we can do to reach our goals as efficiently as possible.

No credit card required.

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.
