Overview:

As an instructor and musician I have explored a huge variety of different musical styles froma roudn the world, as well as the cognitive fundamentals of learning. I try to preapre my students with learning tools that will allow them to continue improving even after my time as their instructor is over. I focus especially on building an understanding of how and why to acquire strong fundamentals, so that we can collaboratively drive their learning. As a performing professional musician, I've had experience in choirs, bands, orchestras, and a multitude of other diverse groups, as well as extensive experience as a recording engineer and producer.

EXPERIENCE

I have taught music lessons both in college as well as for several years before that. I have experience coaching chamber groups, performing and running groups, as well as teaching both musical and non-musical subjects at a variety of levels, including one-on-one tutoring. I base all of my methods on proven cognitive research and fun yet rigorous hands-on experience. When I was younger, I experience many struggles as a musician, and had to work both hard and smart to overcome my more immediately talented peers. My approach to teaching is never to assume a student is bad or lacking talent if something does not come quickly to them. I always try to empathize and work alongside my students to discover and develop their specific proficiencies.

METHODS USED

I usually prefer a phone call or use the first lesson to guage the interest level, previous experience, and goals of the student and/or parents. I have used a variety of teaching books and methods, and will generally try to contour my methods to the needs of students while also keeping costs low. I do not often rquire students to purchase expensive music books, and prefer using repetoire and music directly relevant to students long and short-term goals. For beginning students I always help them build fundamentals with a focus on their particular physiology and musical brain in relation to their instrument. For more advanced students, I may choose to focus on advanced musicianship or theoretical understandings of pieces to enhance their playing if their playing is at a sufficiently advanced level.

LESSON STYLE

I focus particularly on comfort adn compassion on my lessons. I always want to help students develop and discover their own most efficient way of learning. I check in with students regularly before, during and after lessons to make sure I am tailoring the lesson to their needs as much as possible. I believe in positive reinforcement, and if my students aren't practicing, I need to make my lessons more engaging! I also help students set out goals and before and during every lesson, especially the first one. I want my students to know what to expect from me and themselves, so that we can maintain clear and constant communication. I find this is the most efficient way to enable happy, successful students!

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.
