ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

Studies in trumpet performance at Philadelphia Musical Academy (University of the Arts).

Awards:

Presented with a music schollarship upon graduating high school.

Overview:
I am very passionate about my music and those whom I instruct.  My goal is to pass this along to those who have a genuine interest in music and their instrument.  One on one instruction with me is fun and an exciting learning adventure.  I'm thankful to say that I've had many rewarding experiences with students who have accomplished beyond their expectations. From absolute beginners to advanced students, it is always a joy to see and hear their performance, and learn to acquire a love of music and their instrument.
EXPERIENCE
My teaching experience has continued to run since the year 2000.  My lifelong a experiences have allowed me to relate easily to all types of students and ages.  I've performed and recorded with an international orchestra, as well as having stage and recording experience with R&B and funk groups in abundance.  This is in addition to my experience with jazz band in college.  I presently perform with the Grammy award winning "Trammps" (famed music from the movie, Saturday Night Fever).  In addition, I have my own funk and R&B ensemble.
METHODS USED
I strongly emphasize the bodily, physical "mechanics" of "how" to play the instrument.  I've learned that the placement of everything in the mouth (tongue, teeth, air column, etc.) is of critical importance.  If the student has a good concept of the "mechanics" of how to play, he is on the right track to playing to his full potential.  It also eliminates the tendency to create bad habits in the development of mastering the instrument.  Everything else, style of music, music theory, stage performance, etc. is all secondary.
LESSON STYLE
I love to get right in there and perform with the student at a private lesson session.  Serving in this capacity allows me to lead to the best of my ability.  Praise is always given as well as stern instruction.  I'm never harsh with the student because I show compassion in whatever situation the student is involved.  Building up the student, edifying the student is of great importance in my method.  I am of the opinion that a teacher must show complete confidence and belief in the student to build to the student's full capacity.

Carmen is a patient and professional teacher. I am an adult student who is picking my instrument up again after 50 years. He is really helping me with technique.

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.
