Overview:
As a musician for over twenty five years, I not only understand music but can demonstrate superior technique. Not only do I have life long experiences and qualifications, I am also a gifted teacher. I care deeply for all my students by understanding each students unique learning style and can adjust lessons accordingly no matter what age. I have played with the Austin Symphony Orchestra, Oklahoma City Philharmonic, the Lawton Philharmonic, and the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra. In 1992 I had the good fortune to play at Carnegie Hall. I have taught music to all ages in a variety of venues.
EXPERIENCE
My teaching experience began in 2006. During my college years I taught trombone to fellow students and later as a college instructor and high school band director, taught young adults. My experience as an elementary school teacher has rewarded me with skills to work with younger children. I now work with seasoned musicians as a mentor and coach. I have fun too. I have performed with Kristin Chenoweth, The Electric Light Orchestra, Nancy Wilson, and Ray Charles. I have the same fun at every lesson.
METHODS USED
For beginning younger students I begin by working a very short time with parents to assure them their children are in a positive learning environment. Parents of small children are encouraged to attend each lesson with their child. The core principles of musicality, breathing, and perspective are taught. The next step is sound and movement. When these skills are mastered I help students get comfortable with their instruments and then begin playing. Older children just beginning to enter the world of music will begin with the fundamentals of musicianship, sound, and breathing. From there I will progress to rhythm, pitch, and notation. When these skills are mastered I will get the students comfortable with their instruments and begin playing. Students that have a background in music with their instruments will be assessed to determine the level of teaching required. After their skills have been assessed each student will have a plan of action with specific goals to met their target competency. During alls lessons for all age groups I emphasize practice requirements and time management.
LESSON STYLE
My teaching style is to motivate students through fun while building a passion for music. I set expectations for each student and make sure they are a better musician today than they were yesterday. I enjoy finding new and exciting methods to teach any student. Nothing is more rewarding to me than helping a student get that important audition, scholarship, or honor. I always determine what inspires my students and coach them to success every time. By using ensembles, district contests, and other competitions I find that students learn at a faster pace.
