Loyola University Concerto Competition Winner 2017

Overview:

I am a passionate and motivated teaching artist who enjoys working with children and adults. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Music at Loyola University New Orleans in the fall of 2017. Performing chamber music, playing in Orchestra, and special events for weddings and corporate events have been an exciting part of my life as a musician. I've had the opportunity to perform for the Emmerson string Quartet, Degas String Quartet, and have been a part of many premieres such as an Opera Premiere entitled " The lions of reconstruction", and welcomed and played for the first lady of Haiti!

EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience began while helping at the New Orleans String Project when my sisters were learning Viola. In my off time, I would assist the teachers. Later I began giving lessons through some members fo the Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestra to which I have played and excelled through all of the group's sinfonia, Philharmonia, and Symphony. My most recent teaching experience was offering lessons and string pedagogy through the Waldorf school of New Orleans and teaching at my private home studio.

METHODS USED

I offer the Suzuki method of teaching for all beginners and pair it with Essentials for Strings to engage music theory into the lessons. As the students progress there are more books to choose and duets to practice Chamber Music and more advanced techniques.

For Beginning students who are children, I typically start with the Suzuki Method, and essentials for Strings. After they have graduated and begin reading and understanding the basic concepts of music , and reading we begin to play duets and test of types of music.

LESSON STYLE

My teaching style is engaging empathic and emphasis on repetition and finding strong points in students to keep them engaged while working on weaknesses. I encourage all students to work on memorizing repertoire, keeping correct posture, practicing a few times a week and performing for friends and family during the learning process.

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Acknowledging accomplishments fuels the student as well as my self and insures a I can tailor the instruction for more growth later on.

From an adult learner: Jeffrey is skilled, patient, and friendly, the type of teacher who offers a good mix of encouragement and correction. He does a great job adapting lessons to virtual, which any teacher knows is a challenge. He's also flexible with the curriculum, ready with pieces and exercises at my level while also letting me choose some of my own pieces to work on. Highly recommended.

Great teacher! Very passionate and genuinely care not only developing the technical skillset but also students' interest in Cello and classical music. Whenever I am frustrated about practicing and unable to master certain passages, Jeffrey is always there patiently and guide me with this teaching and friendly smile!

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.
