Overview:
Hello!   I'm a singer, songwriter, and music teacher from Brooklyn, NY.    I have a formal musical education, with a degree in composition from Purchase College, (Regina Spektor also graduated from this program!), 6 years of experience as a solo performer, and worked extensively in recent years on writing songs, and releasing recordings (my producer plays keys for Ingrid Michaelson!)
EXPERIENCE
I have been a teacher for 6 years, specializing in one-on-one lessons, loving the thrill of helping students grow to their fullest potential.  I started taking on private students while in between shows and gigs in 2009, and haven't looked back.  It is now my full-time job, and I love it!  I also had magical experiences teaching and mentoring kids at an wonderful summer camp in New Jersey the past few summers.  I taught guitar and songwriting classes, as well as managed rock bands.  I'm more psyched to help people feel the joy of music than ever before!!
METHODS USED
Everyone has their own unique voice, and we will find yours together! I have training in several technique-driven styles, including classical and broadway. However, I like to mix and match. I'm not interested in teaching one certain way- I listen on the fly, and make judgment calls according whatever makes YOU sound best. My guitar lessons are geared toward songwriting and accompaniment. I stress simplicity, expressiveness, and real-world performance skills.
LESSON STYLE
I'm all about creating a good balance of learning practical skills, building confidence, and having fun (a very underrated aspect of music lessons.)  We will cover new ground every time we meet, and go at your pace.  My personal goal is for you to leave the lesson feeling great about your creative future, and eager to learn more.

No credit card required.

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.
