Overview:

I am an experienced instructor who has worked with students of all ages and levels. Teaching provides me with the opportunity to spread my knowledge of the field, as well as have the chance to learn something that I may not have known about. I graduated from Cornish College of the Arts in May 2018, and since then have been refining my curriculum and playing all throughout Seattle with a wide variety of bands. My studio is located in the heart of Capitol Hill. I have access to a keyboard and more via my Alma mater. Thank you for your consideration!

EXPERIENCE

I first started teaching while I was in high school. It all began when I taught at a music summer camp called Camp Winthers. My main responsibilities in regards to teaching were leading instrument sectionals, and giving advice one on one. This would continue summer after summer until I reached college. In the beginning of my time in higher education, most of my lessons taught were to my peers, focused mostly on music theory and ear training. This would change in my junior year of college when I began teaching at Seattle Music House. I taught at the music school for 1 year and decided to focus more on independent instruction.

METHODS USED

For my younger students I usually start with major and minor scales tied in with simple to challenging etudes. I do not have a specific book that I work out of, though if the student has one that they work out of I would be happy to accommodate. For adults I usually have the same approach, but we will focus more on a specific genre or style that they may want to emulate. Once the student, regardless of age, progresses to a certain point, I will recommend that they start to work through books by Sigurd Rascher (158 Saxophone Exercises and Top Tones) and Yusef Lateef (Repository of Scales and Modes).

LESSON STYLE

I work with each student on a case to case basis, each student has different needs and approaches, all of which I try and accommodate. I encourage my students to practice at least an hour a day, this can be done in ten minute intervals or whatever amount of time the student can maintain focus. I would also love to hear about what my student is interested in and what I can do to help them become a more well rounded musician. I also try to mix up playing with understanding basic music theory and ideas, as well as basic ear training. All of these skills will give a beginning student a sturdy foundation to grow and develop.

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
