Overview:

Ever since High School, I have had the desire to teach music - to pass on such an enduring artform to those who want to learn. I recieved my Bachelor's degree in 2010, my Master's degree in 2012, and am currently finishing work on my Doctoroal degree. I am primarily a classically trained musician, but I also have experience in musical theater. I am an active freelancer and teacher within the central and northern New Jersey region. My experience has brought me as far north as Maine, and as far south as Tennessee, and I intend to expand my horizons across the country as my career continues!

EXPERIENCE

I began teaching during my undergrauate years at Rutgers. I began my teaching experience at Stokes State Forest Music Camp, in which I was able to coach small chamber groups, band and orchestra sectionals, music theory, as well as one-on-one instruction. I still teach there every summer, and the skill level and work ethic continues to improve every year. In 2010 I was placed in Edison High School for my student teaching assignment. There I was able to fully direct the freshman level band. I also had the opportunity to teach the Symphonic Band, as well as the Wind Ensemble. In 2012 I began teaching privately and have cultivated a small studio, which has seen a fair amount of success. My ultimate aim is to foster a desire to learn music, and to show students the joy that it can bring to them every day!

METHODS USED

I consider myself to be an adaptable teacher. Every student learns in a different way, and this necessitates a need to adapt and find different ways to teach each student. I am a very firm believer in fundamentals; that is to say, every student needs a solid foundation before moving on to more complex ideas. We need to walk first before we can run! While these fundamentals are being taught, relevant music will be introduced in order to incorporate the basic skills being worked on. I have many method books which I use while teaching, however the two primary books I work from are Arban's Complete Conservatory Method and H.L. Clarke's Technical Studies for the Cornet.

LESSON STYLE

While I stand by a need for fundamental work, it is also very important to understand what the student wants to learn. Upon the first meeting, I typically like to ask the student to show me what their warm-up routine is, and what they are currently working on. This gives me a good groundwork to customize lesson plans for each student. I will then ask them what skills they would like most to improve upon, as well as any new skills they would like to learn. I am very much there for the student's benefit, and would like very much to have an open dialogue. I am also there to learn!

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.
