I'm a dedicated music industry nerd! I am young and have just recently graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, majoring in Music Business/Management and minoring in Trumpet Performance. I have performed in a wide variety of genres throughout my career including; classical, jazz, funk, blues, rock, R&B, hip-hop, rap, pop, edm, electronic.... I love it all! Some highlight performances include an annual charity event hosted by the Boston Pops, monthly shows at the Berklee Performance Center and Wally's Jazz Club.
My teaching experience starts back as a sophomore in high school. To be a teacher, one must be a student first! And I was... In fact, one of the most important lessons I learned from my very first private instructor, was to be able to teach myself!! I have followed this guidance every since then. I started mentoring/teaching other, younger high school students as a junior and found a lot of joy and fulfillment out of it. Since then, I have continued to mentor fellow trumpeters and learn from them as well. Throughout college I played, learned and taught in many different musical settings and with musicians of all different ages. I enjoy teaching and playing with people from all skill levels and backgrounds!
It depends on age, skill, and interests! For younger musicians, I prefer books by great instructors and writters such as Hal Leonard, Jean Arban, Rubank, or Jamie Abersold. For more experienced players, I recommend authors such as Charles Collins, Herbert Clarke, Laurie Frink, or John McNeil. I have always enjoyed taking important concepts from these books and creating my own variations of the exercises that tailor to even more specific techniques and skills! My methods depend entirely on the student and I can adjust/create/find material necessary for any skill level!
Lively and Encouraging! Music is tough and can be very stressful! I stay upbeat and optimistic. It is important that a student is aware that practice and progress is NOT easy and it WILL be frustrating and aggravating. It is how you deal with that frustration that makes the player great! I want my students to know that I will always be a reliable source of knowledge and that they can always depend on me when they can't seem to master a certain skill or technique. The ultimate goal for my students: Take control of your instrument, don't let it control you! That lesson will go a long way in life!
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.
