METHODS USED
For beginning students I typically start by listening to them perform a sound that they feel shows their ability and work with them to determine a goal to further their progress. For singers, we begin by building a set of vocal warmups and exercises. For instrumentalists, we will being with an exercise book that is suited to their level. Overall, I try to maintain a balance of repertoire for my students that both challenges the expands their flexibility as well as inspires them to build their skills.
LESSON STYLE
Mastery in discipline occurs upon finding the balance between your persistence and your passion. One of these elements cannot function without the other, like that of the technique and artistry of a musician. It is through these concepts that freedom of the instrument is attainable. I strive to provide insight that students at any level may apply to their technique. While the capacity of one's instrument may have limitations, growth within any style or genre ultimately relies on ones artistic decisions. Serving the music requires flexibility, and the ability to listen and identify the demands of the music. It is necessary that a standard of awareness is in place for students to be able to build on their vocal foundation. Above all, my goal as a music educator is to empower my students to make informed decisions to better tell their story.
