I am a fun, outgoing and passionate instructor who sets goals with the student and works with them to achieve them. I have a very diverse background in performance and in teaching as well. I most enjoy performing jazz, classical, and musical theater. I have taught students as young as 9 and as old as 40 on various instruments and at various experience levels.
The bulk of my teaching experience comes from being a High School, Middle School and Beginning Band Director for 9 years, as well as teaching Brass and Marching Band at the college level for 2 years. Throughout that time and dating back to my undergraduate college days I have continually taught private lessons of some kind.
My methods are based primarily on the needs of the student. I am very flexible and can adapt my teaching to fit these needs. Students come from many different backgrounds and teaching to the ways they are either most comfortable or to fit the needs of their public school music teacher (if applicable) is essential for success.
During lessons I try to keep a fun but focused atmosphere while having the students play as much as possible. I also believe modeling on the instrument being taught for the student can be a way for students to understand the goals they are trying to achieve.
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.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
