I am a father of two young daughters who share my passion for all types of music (so far). I've had many credits on several studio albums ranging from hip hop to country, and most genres in between. I believe that with discipline and perseverance, virtually anything is achievable. I am extremely motivated, very optimistic, and I absolutely love being in leadership roles. It is because of this affinity for leadership that teaching is something that I love to do. Aside from loving music, I'm also a decorated veteran of the United States Army.
My earliest teaching engagements date back as far as middle school, where I was a member of the Dueitt Middle School guitar club: an after school extracurricular program based upon mutual learning. This eventually led to my joining the Spring High School music club, while offering independently designed lesson plans to students after school and during summer. I continued private lessons and music production well into my military career (including 'down time' in Afghanistan). Beyond simply teaching music, I've also given several master classes on the art of mixing and mastering.
No two students are alike. Because of this fact, no two learning plans are equal. While the easy answer is, "We'll begin with the fundamentals," the more puzzling question and answer is, "How can I apply fundamentals in a meaningful way to the student to ensure that they stay engaged, interested, and focused?" Some students perform well while having the book thrown at them; others do not. My method for beginning students is to pierce the veil of HOW they learn before moving on to which fundamentals to apply, and how to apply them.
Aside from finding a student's learning style, my teaching method centers around creating goals that break down barriers. Most barriers are something other than a student's ability to learn. Music is a hard-learned skill, and it's all too often that many students face the hard reality of not becoming the next legend as soon as they pick up their first instrument. In creating a system of achievable goals for the student, I'm able to push the student away from the negative outlook that comes with the inherent difficulty in maneuvering through the nuances of learning.
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.
