Overview:

I have a strong love of music. I received my Bachelor of Music from East Carolina University and my Master of Music from Anderson University. I have been playing the saxophone for twenty-four years. I have also been a public school general music/band director for five years. I have been teaching saxophone for about twelve years. I am a full-time school teacher and professional musician. I have performed at many weddings, churches, private parties, and music venues ranging from New York City to Texas. I strive to bring out the best in every student. Without music, the world would be miserable. I feel like I must share my experience and knowledge with whoever shows a passion for music.

EXPERIENCE

I have been giving music lessons for over twelve years. I have taught many churches, pop, and R&B musicians music theory and applied lessons. I have taught in the public, charter, and private school systems for over a decade. I am a highly skilled classical and jazz musician. Classical and Jazz music is what I emphasize in the public school system, but I have lots of experience in beach band, gospel, funk, and much more. I encourage my students to perform in talent shows, competitions, churches, and other music venues. My job as a music educator is to provide the best experience possible for my students.

METHODS USED

I like to customize my lesson plans based on the student's needs. It also depends on the style of music that is being learned. I typically like to start with the Rubank method books. These books follow a progressive sequence of beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. However, this is not necessary; the concept of these books is to get a grasp of the fundamentals. I also provide many fundamental exercises I have created and used in my daily practice. After fundamentals are introduced, I like to go into style-specific concepts.

LESSON STYLE

Presentation is everything when it comes to teaching. My teaching style varies from student to student. After teaching in the public school system for five years, I have learned that no two students are the same. I have learned that presentation and variety is the key to successful learning. My set goals are realistic and encourage the student to strive for excellence. Although I have a Master's degree, I feel like a lifetime music student. That is why I like to keep an open mind about what fuels my 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.

Ok

Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
