I am a fun to work with teacher who focuses on the student carefully. I listen well to get a better idea of how my teaching is being received. I graduated from Dematha high school in Hyattsville, MD. While there I won several awards and was a member of both band and chorus programs. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Morgan State University where I was a section leader and arranger for band for 4 years.
I have taught students from the ages 6 to over 30. I have been a student teacher as well as a private teacher. I have written over 10 arrangements for a college band. I have performed numerous recitals and a masterclass. I can and have worked with group lessons as well as private teacher.
For beginning students I normally begin with the basics of making a sound. I focus on the fundamentals once a sound can be produced. I use Hal Leonard's Methods as well as Arbans. I also ask the student what they believe the instrument should sound like.
I approach each lesson differently. I focus on the students' weaknesses and work with them on being more comfortable talking about and facing them. I usually play with the student to ensure that they know I am working just as much as they are. I also do not put intense pressure on students to learn at a tempo; I focus on what makes them enjoy playing and having fun.
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.
