Hello! Music is my life. I am constantly driven by music and I find inspiration in working with students to help them find their musical potential as well. Studying intensively at Mesa College was both rewarding as it was challenging, but working with my Berklee mentors was without question the moments that helped me as a musician, and I wish to share that with all aspiring students.
I had started teaching music to my fellow peers in high school as a school project, and since then have been teaching privately to all ages and skill levels, as well as afterschool arts programs and guitar shops around San Diego. I encourage my students to have a good idea of what they want to accomplish, and through our lessons we'll focus in depth on not only reaching these goals, but doing so in a fun and creative way.
For beginning students, I usually like to start with figuring out their goals. This can be anything from wanting to learn a song, compose music, or simply just figure out some chords to play at a bonfire or social gatheirng. From there we'll look at the fundamentals (what it takes to play a song), and work one step at a time introducing music theory and technique to make it more enjoyable and less confusing. If you're an intermediate player, we'll build concise skill building goals and develop ways to improve technique while keeping it challenging but fun.
Every student learns differently and at a different pace. It is my goal to help a student find their potential and even develop a passion for music in the process. I like to understand where a student is at in terms of goals, evaluate what it takes to accomplish these goals, and work with them using stepping stones if needed. The idea is to tailor my instruction to the goals of the student to help them achieve success and fufillment!
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.
