Overview:

Hi, My name is Solomon and I am a passionate artist, musician, producer, teacher (Piano/Keyboard & Acoustic/Electric Guitar) and student of music performance and music production. In 2011, i stepped deeper into my music career by beginning to experiment with neo-soul, classic r&b, funk and reggae music via taking music theory and piano classes at Morgan State University, soon joining the professional musicians in the area who performed publicly. I've been producing music and performing for 9 years, both on stage and in-studio production sessions. In addition to my contract work with bands, I have been writing, composing and producing my own music since 2007, with 7 self produced albums under my belt thus far.

EXPERIENCE

I began teaching in the music performance/ production field in 2010, while away at Morgan State University in Baltimore Maryland. I started teaching production to middle school students first, using my laptop, audio interface, and midi keyboard. What surprised me the most was that the students wanted to play the keyboard more than record their voices, so with that being the case, my journey as a piano teacher began. After that class I became a music teachers aid and eventually found a position as a part time piano teacher at a performing arts camp.

METHODS USED

My methods and approach to teaching a student all depend on the student (or group of students). I like to find out what attracts my students to music, and more specifically, why they want to learn to play piano. By investigating the motives of my students, I can better tailor a lesson that delivers both what they want to learn and what they need to learn. Once the goals are known, we begin to build a foundation of technical and creative exercises to increase skill and comprehension within the realm of playing piano.

LESSON STYLE

I never want to pressure or overwhelm a student with too much information or expectation, because instead of the instruction being seen as a challenge, it is interpreted as an unenjoyable command, and that discourages the student from practicing to meet their goals, instead of motivating and inspiring them. What I find works best is relating lessons to popular current music, further exploring the bridge of dynamics that make up the songs that the student enjoys.

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.
