Music is my passion and that motivate me to be involved in every step that my students achieve. As a professional musician with more 20 years in a symphony orchestra I have could take a close encounter with many kinds of music and many artists. Every concert, every new experience represents to me a very important knowledge that let me enrichment my career.
My first steps playing occurred in well know ¨El Sistema¨ in Venezuela. That teaching program has made possible change positively many lives in venezuelan society. Quickly at my 17 years old I could be working as formerly musician at Aragua´s Symphony orchestra, this is the professional orchestra of that State. Fortunately I played as soloist with important repretories as well I have participated in chamber musical festivals with differents formats and the most relevant was Aragua´s Symphony orchestra Horn Quartet. In this quartet we could travel to many communities showing our beautiful instrument: the french horn. We have a social and educational mission where enderly houses, hospitals, schools, museums, art galleries, churches and another auditoriums were our best stages. In various opportunities I was invited to play with another national orchestra on my country even in the international tour times. As teacher I use to be very creative and more yet when students are kids.
I love music and that make me motivate others to learn music and the most important: to love it. I think that relation teacher-student is a basis to grow, develop and improve quickly in musical learning. There is so important the confidence and discipline in entire knowledge process between my students and I. To set goals and make a general evaluation of skills since the beginning will be a safe way to be successful. All my long orchestral experience give me enough tools to help every students with their respective necessities. I have been able to obtain great results in little children and thanks to their parents support. To learn a beautiful career as Music depends on discipline, dedication , motivation, passion and perseverance, and I am aware that for every teacher this represents a genuine project, a challenge in time and creativity. In my experiences I have could work in diverse areas:French horn, solfege, children chorus, reading and writing music, aesthetic of music, conducting orchestral and chamber music performance, Orff ensambles, Recorder, Brass ensambles.
In all classes it is essential to establish a technique routine that let students grown up quickly in musical performance. Scales, arpeggios, articulations, intensities, and specific elements to each one instrument have to be part of daily routine. It is important too to maintain motivation and inspiration through interesting musical pieces to the learner and that represents challenges to go step by step.
In French Horn classes (my main speciality, beginners to advance level) beginners can start with methods as First Steps for Horn (Brown), Rubank elementary, The French Horn Step by Step (Macri), Maxime Alphonse, Kopprash, Kling. Then method and studies as Mueller, Hackelman, Gallay, Belloli, Levi. Works with piano accompaniment and in chamber music formats are part of my teaching accordingly to student's level. In my experience with kids I have been able to achieve success implementing own materials.
With piano lessons ( beginners level only) methods as Hanon, the Little Pischna, Czerny, Ana Magdalene Bach's books and many others can be helpful in beginner level to achieve finger independence, dual musical lecture, mechanic and motor skills, articulations, dynamics, etc.
With trumpet classes (beginner and intermediate levels) Clarke, Arbans and Di Maggio methods are perfect to start up besides musicals works, pieces of differents styles in pop or academic way.
In general and for any subject or instrument that I teach It is very important since the beginning to make an evaluation of skills and that provide me the way to do a individual learning project. Evaluation use to be continuously and in every class I take note about contents, progress and observations. My program pretends in every cases to form a professional musician although if students just want to strengthen any technical or musical aspect, learn an specific music style or musical work there will be accepted as well. When conditions are given, I use to propose groupal activities when students can share, learn and make music together, that le them to develop harmonic skills and know-how to work independently inside a group or ensemble. Always the final goal will be enjoy making music on classes and in public presentations. To know that live music is a phenomenal activity to connect people integrally is one of the best lifestyle.
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
