BM Vanderbilt University, Percussion Performance Minor in Organ Studies
Confroy-Lijoi Jazz Award for Excellence in Jazz performance from Vanderbilt University, 2008
Performed with Vanderbilt University Orchestra as Principal Percussionist at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China
I am a professional musician with 10 years of experience, performing at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Schermerhorn Symphony Center, Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China and all around the world.
I am a drummer and pianist with experience at all levels and styles of music performance and education. I am an educator in the music communities of Washington D.C., Nashville, New York City and around the world. I was the Advanced Music Theory tutor with the Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University, Program Administrator with the W.O. Smith Music School in Nashville, TN and Music Director with the National Dance Institute in New York, NY. For the last three years I toured the world as the music director of the production show orchestra, visiting hundreds of countries aboard many cruise lines. Privately, I have privately taught students piano and percussion in pre-school and retirement.
I create custom lesson plans for all my studens, integrating their interests, strengths and weaknesses into a cohesive, dynamic education schedule. I incorporate a variety of different lesson books to ensure musical reading while encouraging consistent exercises in using your ear.
My teaching style is fast-paced, fun and rewarding. I integrate many musical styles and genres, from pop to classical to give my students a wide array of musical experiences. I also gig regularly on both istruments, allowing my students ample opportunity to watch me play.
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.
