My teaching experience started in musical theatre as a writer when I was 17. I was the bassist in an original production. My more recent experience has been as an educational artist for Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, Ga. I’ve had private students from all ages and ethnic backgrounds. The awesome thing about teaching music is that no matter what language one may speak we all can communicate through music. I feel that music is my strongest form of communication and bringing people together. I’m looking forward to teaching my style of learning as I’m a professional student of music myself.
I’m a great listener as I pointed out earlier. My musical strength has always been my ear. I’ve learned all major and minor scales with arpeggios through schooling and that’s great knowledge to have. I focus my teaching technique on scales and arpeggios to show that music heavily comprises of these fundamental elements. But I also teach students who want to learn by ear training and I teach students how to tune the instruments which is a major skill to have. My method is very straight forward and if the students implement the knowledge they will be successful.
My teaching style is customized to the individual. Once I gain knowledge of what the student is strong or weak on, I motivate them to work on those areas. I’m very easy to get along with and I like a fun learning environment where everyone is comfortable. I build confidence and I also point out where the student needs to improve. Depending on the students ambition and assertiveness, I take it up or turn it down! I believe that in teaching I also can learn by recognizing what the student is interested in on the bass guitar.
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.
