Overview:

I am a passionate and dedicated musician and instructor who loves sharing my passion with others. Completed my first year of college at The Boston Conservatory and finished my Bachelors in Music Performance (bass trombone) at The University of Texas at Austin. I have been very fortunate to win competitions around the country, work with professional musicians around the world, and watch world class orchestras through the world. I will be continuing my education and obtaining my masters with one of the leading bass trombonist in the world, Ben van Dijk. I have performed in orchestras, concert bands, jazz bands, salsa bands, marching bands and mariachis throughout my career. Music is my passion that yearn to share with the world through teaching and performing.

EXPERIENCE

In high school, as a leader in our band program, I began helping other band members in need. It was then that I fell in love with the art of teaching. I began officially teaching private lessons five years ago when I started college. I have taught in the San Antonio, Austin, Cedar Park and Pflugerville area, students ranging from middle school to college level. I like to set goals with the students, short term and long term, to measure progress and have something to work towards. Encouraging them to share with their families what they are working is always a good way to assure that they'll have a good support system throughout, which normally gets them more motivated to improve. Making sure they are having a good time throughout our lesson and during their practice times is key. Encouraging them from early on to expose themselves to performances and competitions is something that I always enforce, this is, after all, something that is meant to share with others. Overall, I teach through my own experiences that I have had throughout my career, from fears to achievements, its all something we all go through.

METHODS USED

No matter the skill level, fundamentals are of importance. As brass players we are using flesh against metal, learning how to do so correctly is vital. I always start with a breakdown of what should be included in their daily fundamentals, from long tones to lip slurs to scales and so on. It is as vital as an athlete stretching and conditioning for their health. Throughout our lessons we will vary the fundamentals, showing them different exercises so that we make sure not to fall in a routine but rather focus on the role that the fundamentals play.

Along with fundamentals, I always start incorporating music theory, to help them better understand how music is structured and to further train their ear. Of course, depending on the level will depend how far we get into music theory. Even though they might be taking trombone lessons, I don't want to necessarily train them to be a trombone player, but rather a musician. After which, will come repertoire, including solos, method books, jazz charts and orchestral excerpts. Encouraging them to prepare repertoire for competitions, performances, school test, etc. The goals set at the beginning of the lessons will determine what direction we take and how we approach each goal.

LESSON STYLE

Although each student learns at a different pace and of course has a different personality, one of my favorite things about teaching is seeing their faces light up when they are able to accomplish something they've been working towards. Within teaching lessons, in my experience, has a lot to do with trust. Trust that I am leading the student towards the right direction and me trusting that they are putting the necessary work in to get to that level. Given the trust level that it takes, a bond is definitely formed. Each being very unique, memorable, and adventurous over all. As a private instructor I have seen several ups and downs, whether through the music they are working on or a personal problem, but it is great to see how having something that they are passionate brings this new perspective in everything they do. No matter age, background, aspirations nor gender, music is universal that could bring joy to us all no matter what side of the spectrum we are on. It might be something they just do through high school or the rest of their lives, but the importance lies on the experience we create for them.
