Overview:
I am a saxophonist with a Bachelor of Music from Northern Arizona University and a Masters in Music from University of Washington. I have been teaching both Saxophone and Flute for the past ten years. I have had the privilege to perform, with various ensembles, all over the country. Today, I frequently perform jazz in the greater Seattle area.
EXPERIENCE
I have been teaching for the past ten years. During my undergraduate studies, I had the opportunity to take music pedagogy classes, which have provided the foundation for my current teaching style. I have worked with all ages of students. My goal as an educator is to provide the students with the tools and resources to accomplish their goals, all while demonstrating the joy and inspiration music can bring. 
METHODS USED
My teaching method is tailored to the desired goal of the student. I commonly employ classical fundamentals, which provide the student with tools needed to play the instrument. These fundamentals include: long-tones (for tone production), scales (for technique), overtone series (for the low/high range of the instrument) and reading music. From here, each lesson is modified to the particular student's goals, whether that is improvisation, playing jazz, performing classical literature, exploring experimental music, etc.
LESSON STYLE
I love seeing students grow and develop as musicians. Therefore, I set realistic goals and expectations for the student. I encourage them to explore the material covered during lessons as well as make discoveries on their own. By finding out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to meet their musical goals.

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
