I received a Bachelor of Music from New England Conservatory, a Master of Music from University of Maryland and an Advanced Certificate from Queens College. I am a certified K-12 music teacher. In addition, I have extensive performance experience in a variety of settings.
I began teaching private lessons while still in high school and haven't stopped since, totaling over 20 years. I have accumulated a vast amount of knowledge through my studies and am always eager to share it with my students.
I believe fundamentals are extremely important so in addition to level/age appropriate etude books, I like to incorporate technical exercises which develop different aspects of playing. I have also had great success in preparing students for NYSSMA solo festivals. I am happy to provide extra help on school music including jazz ensemble, band music for concerts, playing tests, auditions, etc.
I like to take a friendly, low pressure approach to private lessons and strive to make my students as comfortable as possible. I strike a good balance between having fun and accomplishing our goals for the day. I also like to play as much as possible in my lessons so students aren't always on the spot.
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.
