AA, Montgomery College, Music Performance; currently getting my BM, University of Maryland College Park, Jazz Studies
2013 - Phi Theta Kappa member 2015 - Leader of Tune'n' Jazz Quartet 2016 - Outstanding Jazz Saxophone Performance Award
In 2016, I graduated with honors from Montgomery College with an Associates of Arts degree in saxophone performance. I am currently getting my Bachelors of Music degree from University of Maryland College Park in Jazz Studies. I was home schooled from middle school through high school through an organization called The Learning Community International. Because of this I started learning music from a young age. I have been the student of Miss Mckay, Dr. Tim Friedlander, David Jones, Perry Contichio, Seth Kibe and Dr. Tim Powell. I have been performing for over a decade.
I have had the opportunity to teach people interested in music for some time. I love the idea of teaching students who are interested in learning music. I love having students who not only want to learn how to play an instrument but also want to perform in recitals in public areas like libraries, schools, senior centers, and festivals. I have been studying music for 14 years. I know how to play Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, and Piano. I also know music theory, and I can teach anybody how to get started.
For beginning students I will start with how to play the instrument. This will involve learning how to exercise certain muscles in the mouth and fingers in a safe way. I will also teach how to stretch those muscles and how to use the correct fingering for the instrument. Once the student has grasped the fundamentals, I will begin teaching solo repertoire which will help them get the skills needed for mastering the instrument if they so choose to. I will try my best to find music that you the student are interested in learning.
I will do my best in finding what you like about music and showing you how to play in that style. I will start with fairly simple pieces before going to the difficult ones. My ultimate goal in teaching music to anybody is making them want to learn more. And one of the best ways to learn what you like is by listening to music. I believe listening to music is just as important as practicing the music. I might play one recording in my lesson but I will encourage you the student to listen to music as homework.
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.
