Overview:

I am a fun, driven and knowledgeable instructor who has been in the education business for more than 10 years.  I love the excitement of getting new students started on their instruments and watching my more seasoned students go on to have awesome performance experiences.  I am currently a graduate student at University of Maryland where I am studying Music Education and look forward to helping new musicians get their start with excellent fundamentals based my information and experiences as a teacher and performer.

EXPERIENCE
My teaching experience dates back to my college days, as I began teaching private lessons part time 8 years ago, and have been consistently teaching students in my home studio for the last 5 years. Encouraging regular practice on a consistent schedule is one of the key points I like to emphasize for younger students, as it tends to help the student progress and gain a passion for the instrument. I've also found that a combination of classical and modern music can go a long way in helping students enjoy the piano and motivate them to practice and continue to learn. If a student isn't having fun in their lessons, then I'm not doing my job! My students are encouraged to enter competitions and recitals, as well as work on composing their own original material, so they can feel good about their accomplishments and stay motivated to learn. I'm always looking to bring on new students of all ages!
METHODS USED

For beginners on drums and percussion, I start with basic snare studies and immediately apply those studies to drumset and bells as appropriate.  For more experienced players, I offer more advanced literature on both instruments and demonstrate how create the various sounds and combinations. For beginning brass students, I start with basic buzzing techniques and immediately begin with low tone studies and learning note names and where the notes apprear on the staff.  I am capable of teaching trumpet, french horn, trombone, baritone, euphonium and tuba as I have performance experience and have taken lessons on all these instruments.

LESSON STYLE

My teaching style is upbeat, fun and fast paced.  I like to give written notes for reference when I am not with the student as this serves as an awesome aid when practicing.  If there are questions, I am always an email, text or phone call away.  The assignments I give are realistic, goal oriented and based on the student's level of experience, talent or willingness to apply themselves to their instrumental study.  This will vary from student to student and is based on schedule and other factors.

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.
