Overview:
I am a professional musician with 15 years of experience, performing at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Schermerhorn Symphony Center, Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China, Studio 54 and all around the world. As an educator, I've taught K-12 for the last seven years, focusing on modern band instruments like guitar, bass, drums and keyboard. My curriculum at school is inspired by School of Rock, the movie, and focuses on teaching students the instrumetns and music of the modern rock band.
EXPERIENCE
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, Los Angeles 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 four years I toured the world as the music director of the production show orchestra, visiting hundreds of countries aboard many cruise lines. For the last 6 six years, I have taught general music in the classroom. For five years, I taught elementary school, grades K;4. For the last year, I have taught general music in middle school for grades 5th through 8th. Privately, I have taught students piano and percussion from all age groups and levels.
METHODS USED
I create custom lesson plans for all my students, 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 our musical ear. I use modern music to inspire students to learn the songs they like. I also promote songwriting and other creative outlets to inspire students to find their own musical voice. I emphasize collaboration and interaction in my lessons, building in time for students to play with me, family members, friends or other students to build their musicality.
LESSON STYLE
My teaching style is fast-paced, fun, and engaging. I integrate many musical styles and genres, from pop to classical to give my students a wide array of musical experiences. I believe in positive reinforcement and prioritize a student's social-emotional learning. Through music, my students will learn about the world, their community, and themselves. I focus on growth and not benchmarks to assess the success of my students. I also gig regularly on both instruments, allowing my students to have ample opportunities 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.
