ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

B.A. SUNY Stony Brook, Philosophy NYS Secondary Teaching Certification Extensive private study

Overview:

I have had the privilege to make my leaving as both a musical performer and teacher for over thirty years. In that time I have taught and played many different styles of music. I have studied jazz with Steve Khan, classical with Jerry Willard, alternate tuned fingerstyle guitar with Peter Lang, bass with Jerry Jemmott...I am still an avid student of the craft and art of music and teaching.

EXPERIENCE

I first taught at a local music store in my senior year of high school, and have continued to enrich and refine my teaching through college, private study and a remarkably varied performance career. I love what I do, and I approach it with the kind commitment that you deserve.

METHODS USED

Depending on a student's level of experience I use either the Mel Bay Modern Method or the Berklee Modern Method for the development of reading skills. More importantly, I can draw upon a large library of transcriptions and instructional materials that I, myself, have developed over the last three decades, supplemented by recordings and videos. I make sure that a lot of the lesson is spent actually playing, and like to give the student many opportunities to play along with someone else-namely, me.

LESSON STYLE

Sure, it's a cliche, but it's true: everybody's different. Music lessons are a unique opportunity to learn in whatever fashion works best for the individual, and there is nothing I love more than finding out exactly how the student learns best. After all, it's not about me or how I like to teach. It's about them.

No credit card required.

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.
