ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

BM, Rutgers University, Jazz Guitar Performance

Awards:

2015 - Performed with Rutgers University Big Band at the Blue Note

Overview:

I am a music instructor who loves passing down information and my love of music to my students. I graduated from the Mason Gross School of the Arts in 2016 with a degree in Jazz Guitar Performance. I have had many opportunities to play throughout the New York and New Jersey area and become a part of the music scene here. I have performed at the Blue Note and Somethin' Jazz Club in New York as well as many other private and public venues/events. At Mason Gross I had the opportunity to perform with Jeff "Tain" Watts, Claudio Roditi, and Michael Dease with the top ensemble at the school.

EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience goes all the way back to when I was in high school eight years ago. I began playing guitar at the early age of 5 so I had a lot of practice and experience by that time. I always try to encourage my students to let me know what their goals are for playing guitar so we can base their lessons around that. I have taught students of all ages from 5 years old to 60 and older. With my knowledge of music I have had no problem teaching any student who is interested in any style of music.

METHODS USED

For younger students and all of my students who want to learn how to read music I start with the Mel Bay Guitar Method Vol. 1. As we progress through that I usually start giving out more reading that is complimentary to the direction that the student is going in. However, I know there are several guitar students who don't necessarily want to learn how to read music which I am fine with teaching. I have many students that I teach without learning how to read music and really find the core of what they want to learn and achieve on the guitar.

LESSON STYLE

The best feeling for me is seeing my students progress and enjoy playing the guitar. I always set goals for my students from lesson to lesson so that we can optimize what we do in each meeting. We will have short term and long term goals that we work with in order to achieve what a student would like to learn on the guitar. With knowledge of what the student wants to learn on the guitar we can accomplish any goals between individual practice and lessons. I go at the students pace so they never feel overwhelmed.

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
