Overview:
I am a music educator of nine years: I have taught both middle school band & choir to at-risk youth, as well as elementary music at a private Christian academy. My principal instrument is the saxophone (which I began playing in 1990), and I play many other instruments. As for my formal education, I received the Bachelor of Music Education degree from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; and the Master of Music Education degree from The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA, 2010). 
EXPERIENCE
In addition, I provide private music instruction each week teaching lessons on a variety of instruments and have even served as a substitute teacher, as well as performing with various bands and ensembles over the years.
METHODS USED
Everyone has the capacity to be a musician...therefore, I teach students of all ages and include all cultures (all styles and musical genres). No one is a 'beginner' when it comes to recognizing great music, so I strive to create musicians who can reach their own goals...thus, building independence is key--my job is done when my students can do what I do without needing me! For more experienced students, I assess your present skills upon our first lesson via a variety of repertoire so as to 'diagnose' what areas you are lacking musically. Then, I can 'prescribe' what methods are necessary for you (custom-tailored) in order to improve!
LESSON STYLE
Objective: My goal is to create life-long learners, so my students may always find time for practice and a place to perform great music.

No credit card required.

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.
