Awards:

LOUIS ARMSTRONG JAZZ AWARD WINNER OUTSTANDING UPPERCLASSMAN WINNER ANGELO STATE SWEEPSTAKES BAND DIRECTOR (UIL) SPECIAL AWARD BAND DIRECTOR (UIL) BEST BAND IN CLASS WINNER SANDY LAKE FESTIVAL BEST BAND IN CLASS (JAZZ BAND) SANDY LAKE FESTIVAL

Overview:
I AM A BAND DIRECTOR THAT HAS TAUGHT SINCE 1982. i HAVE A LOT OF EXPERIENCE, AND AM PASSIONATE ABOUT TEACHING INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC. i HAVE TAUGHT AT EVERY LEVEL EXCEPT COLLEGE. I HAVE TAUGHT IN ALMOST EVERY SITUATION IMAGINABLE. I HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE HAD STUDENTS SELECTED TO ALL-REGION AND ALL STATE BANDS IN TEXAS AND IN OKLAHOMA. I HAVE PERFORMED PROFESSIONALLY WITH DOC SEVERINSEN AND PETE FOUNTAIN. I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO PERFORM IN EUROPE IN DIFFERENT VENUES IN FRANCE, GERMANY, AND SWITZERLAND, AND PLAYED A CONCERT AT THE NOTRE DAME IN PARIS. HERE LOCALLY, I HAVE PERFORMED WITH SEVERAL DIFFERENT GROUPS. I REALLY ENJOY WORKING WITH INSTRUMENTALISTS OF ALL AGES.
EXPERIENCE
MY TEACHING EXPERIENCE IS LENGTHY AND VARIED. I HAVE TAUGHT MAINLY IN SMALLER SCHOOLS, BUT HAVE ALSO TAUGHT IN BIG 6A SCHOOLS IN OKLAHOMA CITY, FORT WORTH, AND DALLAS. I HAVE TAUGHT EVERY KIND OF INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC, BUT I REALLY HAVE A SEVERE LIKE FOR BAND INSTRUMENTS. I HAVE TAUGHT EVERY LEVEL OF EVERY BAND INSTRUMENT. WHETHER IT BE BRASS, WOODWIND, OR PERCUSSION, I HAVE TAUGHT IT. I HAVE TAKEN BANDS TO SAN ANTONIO, HOUSTON, BRANSON, DISNEYWORLD , AND NEW YORK. I HAVE HAD MANY WONDERFUL STUDENTS, WHO HAVE MAKE ALL-CITY, ALL-REGION, AND ALL-STATE, AND MANY WHO NOW PLAY PROFESSIONALLY. MAYBE YOU ARE THE NEXT ONE!!!!!!
METHODS USED
tHE BEST METHODS OR BEST PRACTICES IS WHAT I PREFER TO USE. THAT IS REALLY JUST A COMPILATION OF TECHNIQUES THAT HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO WORK. THERE IS NOTHING THAT TAKES PLACE OF HARD WORK. I WILL DO EVERYTHING I CAN TO FACILITATE YOUR LEARNING---I WILL SHOW YOU SHORTCUTS, TEACH YOU TECHNIQUES ON YOUR INSTRUMENT, SHORTCUTS ABOUT READING MUSIC, HOW TO PROPERLY BREATHE--HOW TO PROPERLY HOLD THE HORN---HOW TO SIT---HOW TO STAND---ETC.... BUT NOTHING IS GOING TO TAKE PLACE OF YOUR HARD WORK. YOU ARE THE PLAYER----YOU ARE THE MUSICIAN---YOU DON'T GET GREAT UNTIL YOU WORK YOUR BEHIND OFF.
LESSON STYLE
I AM A CLASSICALLY TRAINED MUSICIAN, SO THEREFORE, THE STUDENTS THAT I HAVE TAUGHT OR WILL TEACH WILL BE CLASSICALLY TRAINED. WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT WE WILL USE WHAT NOW IS COMMONLY THOUGHT OF AS BEST PRACTICES. NOTHING TAKES THE PLACE OF PRACTICE, AND THAT IS THE FIRST BEST PRACTICE THAT WILL BE STRESSED. THE STUDENT HAS TO PUT TIME IN ON THE INSTRUMENT, OR THEY ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE AWAY ANYTHING. THEY HAVE TO BE FAMILIAR WITH THE INSTRUMENT, AND THAT IS STRESSED. THEY WILL BE REQUIRED TO READ MUSIC, THAT IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE. THEY WILL TRAIN ON ALL MAJOR SCALES, AND WILL BE REQUIRED TO PERFORM THOSE SCALE, AS WELL AS ETUDES THAT ARE SPECIFICALLY FOR THEIR INSTRUMENT.

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.
