Overview:
I am an outgoing and aspiring Trombonist with a pure love for music. I want nothing more than my future students to cherish, learn the beauty of the craft, and have a deep appreciation for music. I am a fresh graduate from Kutztown University; grew up in Allentown. I've been performing since I was in 7th Grade. I've toured, recorded, and have played up to as much as four month's worth of shows. I am involved in several groups such as The Groove Merchants, Dorney Park Boogie Down Band, Center Stage Live Band, Pigpen Fun Band, and Lehigh Valley Urban Latin Orquestra. I am a diverse musician; genres know no bounds when it comes to my style! I play it all! I also have a deep understanding of Theory and I use music notation software such as Finale!
EXPERIENCE
My teaching experience dates back to when I was a senior in High School. I knew I loved music; but most importantly; I wanted to make a difference. Being from Allentown; there wasn't much to do. I sought music as a gateway to greatness. I remember succeeding in school and my passion for learning and excelling at the Trombone was fulfilling. I knew as an Adult; I wanted to inspire people; and also kids the same way music inspired me and made me who I am today. I originally was declared BS in Music Education for the first four years of my College experience. I took a huge course load of courses that enabled me to be prepared to teach, along with several hours of observation in each and every level. I will teach anything the student wants to know specifically to the best of my ability and I will also enlighten them on things they may not know! I will also encourage practicing; as this is the sole reason anybody can play their instrument well. It definitely takes practice, coming from experience. It will be my job to ensure I can motivate and educate as much as possible with having fun but also with a purpose.
METHODS USED
My methods of teaching will be based on the level of the student indefinitely. If the student is brand new to the craft; then we would basically start off with making a sound out of the instrument. This is the quintessential aspect of playing that when placed with the right habits; can lead to greater success. It is so crucial to the process. I would then assign a beginner's book. Very cheap. If student cannot buy a book; we can work out an agreement since I have some materials! We would definitely read out of these books, and I will assign pages within the book as practice. Definitely would mix it up with a fun tune to learn for the student so that he/she can develop a repertoire. Over time, etudes, solos, and repertoire will be added. If a student is more advanced; I would switch up to a warm-up routine. If the student wants to work on etudes, solos, or other works we can look at them. Next, I would develop a routine based on articulation, intonation (etc) to refine those fundamentals and encourage the student to practice at all times. I will keep them very busy. Every lesson will be designed for each student.
LESSON STYLE
My teaching style is pretty straight forward and hands on. I like to ask questions and make people think. I also like for people to work at their pace. I will try to set goals for your student to achieve. I definitely like to tap into what the student likes and go from there! I like to utilize the instrument and have the student really use their listening skills to achieve great sound on the instrument. I also will go above and beyond trombone to develop the students musicianship. At the end of the day, these instrumentalists / vocalists are MUSICIANS.
