Overview:
I am a 33 year old Male instructor, who has lived in Seattle since 2006. Moving from the Southwest, I am currently a professional music instructor, performer and preschool teacher. Enjoying the outdoors immensely, I often find myself riding my bicycle, jogging and hiking in the Great Northwest. I have a large interest in soccer as well, spending time enjoying watching and playing it around the city.  Music being my main passion, I also play and enjoy live music throughout the weeks and months in our wonderful city of Seattle.
EXPERIENCE
I have taught in the classroom, small group settings as well as one on one in both piano and drumset. My favorite thing about music instruction is connecting with the students on a musical and personal level.  I started studying piano at the age of 5, making it my career as a teacher after college and into adult life. Choosing to focus more on drumset and percussion studies at the age of 11, I then studied Percussion Studies in College, playing in many bands and styles. I currently play drum set in a Latin Jazz group, percussion in a Standards Jazz group and teach piano to ages ranging from preschool to senior citizen.
METHODS USED
I teach the Faber and Faber method on piano, supplementing my curriculum often with what the student wishes to study or with a number of books that I also keep in my possession i.e. Beatles Fake Book, Introduction to Bach, Well-Tempered Klavier, Hanon, Berklee Method in Rock and Jazz. I also encourage the student to play what they desire to play, be it a pop song or a classical masterpiece. In drum set I work on technique, pattern playing, fundamental hand to hand combinations, then hand to foot combinations, often supplementing the lesson with recordings and learning from the sound of recorded drummers.
LESSON STYLE
With my teaching style, I prefer to work on what the student has an interest in if they are old enough to know the difference. There is no better feeling than to work with a student who is enjoying the study of the current material.  When the child is at a young age, I incorporate curriculum that targets ear-training and listening, reading, rhythmic awareness and time-keeping, and theory. I enjoy making the lesson fun by incorporating both examples of recorded music, in depth knowledge and experience and a relaxed friendly demeanor. Music should be fun, not torture.

Conor is terrific. He engages my sons (even the little one who is only 4!) and has really taught them to enjoy the piano. He is approachable and fun but also instills the right amount of seriousness to the lessons. great teacher!

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
