Overview:
I have been playing music since I was three years old. I earned a bachelor's degree in music from Oakland University and have been teaching for over 30 years. While living in New York City I worked as a commercial composer and was selected by the Songwriters Hall of Fame to be a part of their Songwriters Showcase. I have written and recorded four commercially released albums and have performed on multiple releases by other artists. Throughout my music career I have always enjoyed sharing my knowledge and helping others find joy and satisfaction through music.
EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience dates back to my early college days where I started teaching from home. I eventually was hired by one of the premier teaching studio's in suburban Detroit. I have had as many as 40 students a week when working full time out of a studio. I have stayed friends with many students who have moved on to either music careers, or have simply enriched their lives through music. I am honored to be a part of it. I have performed in various musical ensembles from full orchestra, to solo coffee shop gigs.

METHODS USED
I typically use a combination of one of the standard method books combined with ear training and memorization. This is accomplished through both technical theory study, but with added fun patterns and simple melodies to get started with improvising if the student chooses to do this. I also add in duet playing for live lessons, and back and forth play for online to help develop a sense of musicianship relating to other players. I also have recital opportunities available for interested students.
LESSON STYLE

I am a strong believer that everyone benefits from learning and experiencing music as a performer in addition to experiencing it as a listener. While encouraging my students to achieve at their highest level, I like to keep my lessons fun for all ages, especially for my younger students. I will work with parents to find the balance you desire that is best for your individual child. My lessons are built on a foundation of traditional studies where students learn to play, read music, and follow chord charts, as well as working towards playing free from reading music. For students that are interested, I can help them create their own music either using the latest technology or starting simple with just a single instrument. I also enjoy helping students learn to improvise if they choose. Whether you or your child are a beginner or a more advanced student needing guidance, let's explore music together!

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.
