Overview:

I graduated from Oakland University in 2014 with a bachelors degree in music. I am not currently a Masters Student at Roosevelt University where I study with CSO Principal trombonist Jay Friedman. I maintain an active free lancing schedule in the city playing musical theater, orchestras, and in chamber music groups throughout the Chicagoland area. In addition to my vast classical experience I also have a strong jazz/contemporary music background.

EXPERIENCE

I have always loved teaching. I taught martial arts for several years, and I have also taught private lessons for most of my college career. I think that there are fundamentals that are necessary to brass playing, and that if you work to build those fundamentals then you can be successful in any playing situation. I am also adament that musicianship has to come first and technique issues have to be subservient to making great music. Because of this I always push to get students playing music as soon as possible. No one picks up an instrument to learn how to play long tones, and so this "music first" mentality helps students to stay focused and motivated because they can see much quicker progress in their own playing.

METHODS USED

I've been very lucky to have had fantastic teachers throughout my musical career. I try to adapt the same methods that they used with me while I was first learning to play. I pretty much tailor lessons to each specific student's needs as there are no 2 students who are exactly the same. Everyone will have different things they do well and it is my job as the teacher to help them develop the specific things that they need to work on.

LESSON STYLE

The most important thing that I can teach a student is good habits. One of my first teachers always said "I'm not here to teach you to play the trombone, I'm here to teach you how to practice the trombone." That has esentially been my teaching philosophy since then. The half hour to an hour that I would be spending with a student each week is not enough time to turn them into a great trombone player, so the most important thing to do in lessons is to teach them how to practice the instrument when I am not in the room with them.

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
