Overview:
I’m a creative, passionate, and motivated instructor who loves working with students while sharing my passion for music. In 2017 I graduated from Kean University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication, but don't let the fact that my degree isn't in music deter you from inquiring about my services. I’ve been playing professional gigs and composing my own music for over ten years. I’ve also had the opportunity to perform alongside internationally touring acts as well as having toured parts of the country performing with bands I’ve played in. My ability to teach lessons for guitar, trumpet, bass guitar, and ukulele combined with my ability to sing and play piano and drums makes me a very versatile musician.
EXPERIENCE
For the past 8 years I have been consistently teaching private lessons in students’ homes, as well as in my home studio, all over Middlesex County and Monmouth County in New Jersey from customer word of mouth and by networking. I’ve taught ages 7 to 25 and have had beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. For younger students, I recommend adding regular practice to their daily routine to help skill development and ensure progression. I’ve found that teaching each student a variety of playing styles and songs from different music genres helps give them exposure and makes the learning process more enjoyable.
METHODS USED
My teaching methods consist of my own custom lesson plans that are specifically tailored for each individual student. During the first lesson with a student, I like to get a feel for where they’re at in terms of ability and goals. Then I introduce the skills they’ll need to reach those goals in the form of songs they like or kinds of music they listen to. For beginners, I start with basic exercises and fundamentals that will give them an ability to play and improve before moving on. For the more experienced, I assess their current skills and work on further developing them. No matter the student’s ability level, it is my job to keep the lessons fun and engaging!
LESSON STYLE
I know I've done my job well when I see students develop a passion for music of their own! My teaching style is laid back, straight forward, and goal oriented. Given each student learns and progresses at their own pace, I create each lesson precisely for the individual student and the particular point in progress in which they are at. By combining proper encouragement, my skills as a musician and teacher, the drive and interest of each student, and regular practice, I can guarantee improvement after every lesson I teach!

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.
