Overview:
I attended St. Olaf College for my undergraduate degree and did a Bachelor's of Music in Trumpet Performance and Bachelor's of Arts in Music Theory/Composition. After graduating in 2009, I volunteered for a year as a music teacher in rural Malaysia. Upon returning to the US, I did a Master's of Music at Eastman School of Music before working as a teacher and freelancer in Singapore for two years. I love playing and teaching all kinds of music!
EXPERIENCE
I've been teaching music since high school. Throughout college, I maintained a small private studio of trumpet students. After college, I taught piano, guitar, and general music as a volunteer teacher in rural Malaysia for one year. In graduate school, I instructed two courses of ear training every semester. Since then, I've been teaching all the brass instruments at various international schools in Singapore. Now, back in NY, I look forward to meeting new students!
METHODS USED
I often find that the method of teaching and practice is more important the the material being used. That being said, I think it is very important to develop strong fundamentals. I like to use time-tested standards, such as the Clarke and Arban's book. For younger students, their school band books usually suffice with some supplementation from my own library.
LESSON STYLE
I am a passionate and creative teacher. I love helping students discover their own talents and interests. I believe in helping students learn how to learn and to become their own best teacher. I like to work with what the students musical interests are, and build upon that.

No credit card required.

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.
