METHODS USED
For Reading: "You're in the Band, Unplugged" Dave Clo, Pop melody books by Hal Leonard, Berklee Press reading studies, Bach's Violin Sonatas and Partitas, Charlie Parker's Omni Book, Jazz Real Books. I have my own methodology for every other aspect of music including theory, ear training, improvisation, etc. Teaching Style I believe first and foremost in supporting and developing what musically inspires a student’s decision to study and/or play music. In order to fully develop control, musicality and understanding of the music language, it is important to focus on several aspects of music including music theory (scale and harmonic structure/function and rhythm) ear-training, reading and performance skills. Expectations of Students Like any aspect of life, consistency and patience are two very important qualities to posses when working towards a goal. The duration of each practice session is proportional to the level of the student. Learning how to practice efficiently with your instrument is key for adherence and success in obtaining your goals.
