Overview:
"Motivated and dynamic apprentice of life and learning. Budding audio engineer with first-rate potential and musical dexterity. Long-term goals include but are not limited to: being able to record and engineer music for multiple genres / styles while also sitting in as a studio musician on any given session; running a private project / "jam" studio for creating, recording and mixing. Short-term goals include but are not limited to: training under well-rounded and skilled engineers, making reliable contacts, along with generally becoming a versatile and proficient audio engineer, producer, and musician." This basically says it all in a nutshell. Looking forward to teaching eager minds with Musika!!
EXPERIENCE
I've been teaching music since high school whether it be an impromptu lesson, a scheduled class lesson or a group endeavor in learning performance pieces for college. I feel that the musical journey is a lifelong lesson if you're willing to be taught. No matter the age or level of experience, there will always be something to learn or improve upon. I would have to say that the best part of teaching is when a lightbulb goes off in the brain and a student cracks open the doors of understanding a concept. I hold to my belief that to get better at anything or to understand something more, one needs to push themselves past their perceived level of comfort and stand before the unfamiliar albeit scared or nervous. This really is the only sure-fire way of imprinting those new musical pathways in the brain! The great thing about this practice and performance method is that anyone can benefit from it and this why I enjoy group lessons just as much as individual lessons. Once a student has learned a skill (ie: a chord, a chordal pattern, a song, ect.) I like to include a small jam session to recap and nail down the concept. This also gives younger students a taste of what it's like to play with a group instead of just a backing track.

I also record and prepare a rough mix during the lesson for the student to take home and study with!
LESSON STYLE
My teaching style varies per student. I'll scope out there abilities and what they'd like to achieve and go from there. I will always try to include a small group performance/jam session (with myself and other local musicians) as well as record the lesson for the student. I don't have a syllabus to follow because everyone learns at their own pace. We will start off with basic understanding of the desired instrument ( if one isn't specified, we'll start on piano) and build our way up. If the ability level is above basic, I still like to start at ground level just to be sure. If you know your basics, the first few lessons will be a breeze and we can move on to the areas you're most interested in!

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.
