Master's Degree: Music Education
Undergraduate Degree: Bachelor of Music
I have been a music educator for seven years in the public school system in Virginia and have been teaching private trumpet lessons for 16 years. My students have achieved on different levels and have been accepted to major music universities along the east coast including JMU, VCU, UVA and Berklee College of Music. I currently teach online lessons out of my home due to the corona virus outbreak across the U.S. I am happily married to my wife Lindsay and we have a daughter as well as a dog, who sometimes might make a guest appearance in our lessons!
I have taught private lessons for the past 16 years on trumpet since my senior year in high school. While I am able to come to your home for a lesson, given the corona virus it is more convenient for both students, parents and myself to teach online lessons. I have also taught in the public school system as a music educator for the past seven years. Students in my programs have been able to successfully audition into various regional and national ensembles. Bands within my programs have earned highest ratings at various competitions and have also performed internationally!
I am able to adapt and teach using a variety of teaching tools and methods. I am happy to play music that you received in school, and I also have practice materials I am happy to share with you. My goal is to create a fun environment while being able to teach and push you as a musician. I try to relate the trumpet to what ever you are currently interested in whether it be sports, cooking, reading, favorite movie etc. If I am able to relate the trumpet to something you already enjoy, you will have a fun and engaging lesson.
I enjoy teaching students of various age levels and experiences. I am happy to help upcoming middle school, high school or college students. I tailor my lessons to fit the needs of each student I teach without pushing a student too hard. I try to use feedback from each student to determine and plan out lessons on the trumpet. I have various teaching materials that I am happy to share with my students in the off chance they do not have anything they are currently working on. I set realistic goals for each of my students to achieve and I enjoy watching each student grow and develop a love of the trumpet and music!
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.
