If you are looking for a Classic teacher with classic teaching methods, you are looking in the wrong spot. I teach with an instant gratification method. You will still be just as skilled (if not more) as the rest of any other musicians out there but what you will have and develop is your own artistry and your own path as a musician. So many teaching styles try to make music more of a science rather than a passion. This is not a problem for some people however, for me that teaching style added a lot of unnecessary pressure to what is supposed to be a fun thing to do!
My number one goal is to see music change the lives of my students as much as it has for me. Singing has proven to increase cognitive awareness and reduce stress. I'm a very positive person and I believe in encouraging my students while also achieving work! Music is a universal language and will be such a good thing to have in your life! I can't wait to sing with you!

I begin my teaching by gauging the student's current ability; once it has been recognised, I then inquire about what it is the student wishes to accomplish under my tutelage. I weed out any early misgivings by trying to get the student to settle for realistic goals. Aiming too high can often overwhelm individuals, and it is a mistake I like to avoid in my teaching, especially in a field as emotionally demanding as music. However, this does not mean that the overall goal of the lessons should be underachievement; rather, my hopes for the long-term are that the cumulative growth in the student establish a strong foundation so that higher learning becomes not only possible, but manageable.

Teaching Methods: Let start from the ground up! With a beginner guitarist or bassist I want to both keep them excited about learning and teach the the fundamental necessary structure required to develop into a one of a kind musician. I use finger training and strengthening techniques to get the students physical ability in tip top shape, along with innovative chord ideas and mental understanding techniques. Most importantly by the end of every lesson even the first one I leave my students with a cool riff to play to show them that what they are learning is truly working, I believe this will keep students engaged in the learning and keep them working harder for the next lesson. Instead of working from boring books I like to jump right into the genre that student is most excited about and imply techniques from other genres along the way! Along with this I like to give a bit of historical knowledge and opinions so the student truly learns the roots of what they love the most.
Teaching Styles: I want to build a course that reaches your every desire of whatever musical path you decide to take. Instead of just teaching the basics I run my courses like a college every student chooses a major genre to want to play and a minor. From those two genres I add on additional genres to touch of in the course to make your new found musical ability that mush more unique. For example, If you where to pick Jazz and Modern Metal I would also then want to touch on Progressive rock and Country to ensure that your future original composition will sound like no one else's. I don't just want to teach you music I want to give you a skill you will love till the day you leave the known universe.

Teaching Methods: My teaching philosophy revolves around two main concepts: teaching healthy vocal technique and addressing the particular needs and desires of each individual student. With every new student that I take on, I like to start with the basics and build a foundation of healthy technique. I then make a point to consider the student’s interests and goals with regards to singing and incorporate them into our lesson plans. I have all my students try classical, musical theatre, and contemporary music in some form, but the focus of each student’s lessons will be different depending on what they enjoy and what they want to pursue. I have taught everything from Handel to Justin Bieber!
Teaching Styles: I like to create a relaxed, safe atmosphere for my students where it's okay to try new things and make mistakes. Mistakes are a natural part of learning. I encourage my students to succeed at their own pace and in a way that highlights their own unique gifts and personalities. I like to challenge my students in fresh new ways all the time! We will try various warm ups, techniques, musical ideas, genres, and more. I will set realistic goals for my students, and we both enjoy when the goals are reached!

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
