Overview:

I am a passionate and committed instructor who loves sharing the love of music with my students. I have performed in many types of ensembles from Dixieland to Klezmer and from Vocal A Capella to large choruses. I love witnessing the life-transforming power of music.

EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience spans two decades. I started teaching private lessons whilst in graduate school and have continued teaching ever since. To keep a student's interest I find ways for them to invest in their education by choosing music on their own to play (as well as providing what I know will move the student forward).It is important to me that students enjoy playing their instrument and that they find it to be fun. I incorporate music theory and composition into lessons and encourage as much live performance as possible.

METHODS USED

For beginning students on brass instruments, I like to use the Rubank Methods. It is important to me to get the student playing familiar tunes as soon as possible so that they enjoy playing but not at the expense of the fundamentals. Generally, I choose a piece for a student to play and then they choose a piece. 

LESSON STYLE

One of the most rewarding expeiences in teaching for me is to see the look on a student's face when they "get it". What a thrill to instill a love of music and learning in a student. I set realistic goals and always give them something to work towards (recital, concert, etc). I listen to my students to discover what motivates them toward further learning. I also attempt to create an atmosphere within the teaching studio that fosters good playing, excellent listening and most importantly, good people!!

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.
