Instruments: Violin

I think the violin is very special. It’s such a difficult instrument that requires lots of commitment and dedication. I would have never reached my level now if it weren’t for the teachers who were firm and persistent with me. I translate this back to my own teaching methods so I am a firm teacher but at the same time I do my best to make lessons engaging and that my students take pride in their improvements. Read More

Instruments: Piano Violin Viola

I have been sharing my love of music and teaching students for more than 10 years. I strongly believe in encouraging my students to practice and set up goals that would help them grow. These goals include learning a new challenging piece, getting prepared for a recital, audition or competition. I believe in helping my students with learning how to practice on their own and being able to work independently from our lessons. Read More

Instruments: Piano Voice Violin Viola Music Keyboard

My approach to teaching is to come in with a detailed plan I'm ready to throw out the window. Music should be fun! Sometimes we have to work hard to make sure it is fun for the long run, but work doesn't need to be unenjoyable. For the kids and kids at heart, I incorporate movement games and Orff instruments. Those that consider themselves to be adults will have a bit more sedate fun and games. Read More

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a student develop a passion for music! Therefore, it is important to approach each student individually, adjusting my teaching methods to them personally. This ensures that the student progresses at their own pace.  Most importantly, I encourage their progress by setting proper goals and acknowledging their accomplishments which makes students eager to learn more.  Making progress is the goal for both me and my students, and we work together to make that possible.

Instruments: Violin Fiddle

My primary goal is for people to have fun while learning music. I believe that you can never teach someone something they have no interest in learning and I'm most committed to making sure that students at all levels are excited about what they are doing. Especially with fiddle, my goal is to make the experience enjoyable and useful. Hopefully before too long you can get out to a session and strum along even if you are stone cold beginner. Read More

Teacher In Spotlight

Instruments: Violin

What is your favorite style/genre of music to play and why?
I have pretty eclectic taste in music but really enjoy Baroque music. The music composed by Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, and Corelli are among my favorites. There is a stately quality found within Baroque artistic expression which is characterized by ornamented note patterns -namely, trills, mordents, passing tones, and arpeggios. This is particularly true in the Unaccompanied Violin Sonatas by Bach where the musician is required to balance left hand dexterity with skillful manipulation of the bow while producing elegant phrasing.

Do you use specific teaching methods or books? (Ex: Alfred, Bastion, Suzuki, Hal Leonard) Why did you choose them if you did?
I do use specific teaching books as a framework for fundamental techniques. I use "All Strings" for beginning and intermediate students because it provides an incremental approach to learning the basics of the instrument. "Wohlfahrt 60 Studies For the Violin" is a book that expose all of my students to once the basics have been mastered. These studies provide students with many of the techniques needed for an accomplished violinist to successfully navigate the instrument. I introduce more advanced students to "Kreutzer 42 Etudes For thee Violin." These etudes or caprices introduce tome of the intricacies they will encounter in violin literature. I also incorporate Mazas and Viotti Duets to foster the development of Chamber music skills.

What musical accomplishments are you most proud of?
Music has added so much joy to my life but there are a few accomplishments that stand out. Being selected to participate in the NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association)All-State Chamber Orchestra as a High School Junior is a major milestone. Only the best musicians who auditioned throughout New York State were accepted. I was also selected to participate in the Oberlin Chamber Orchestra and tour with the Choir during Winter Term. Appearing on Grammy nominated live recordings with world renown Gospel artists Richard Smallwood and Donny McClurkin. Serving as Principal Second Violinist with the Pan American Symphony Orchestra on our inaugural tour to Peru; performing with Steven Curtis Chapman as concertmaster, Worship Orchestra of Washington at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Why did you choose your primary instrument?
I attended the "Kinder Concert" series sponsored by the Buffalo Philharmonic and was drawn to the string section. They were always involved and this was intriguing to me. Then, my elementary school sent a notice to parents encouraging school music lessons. My mother, an educator, required that my brother and me listen to an album of orchestral instruments so that we could make an educational decision on which instrument to take. Neither one of us could initially distinguish the viola from the violin. Eventually, we selected the violin after discovering that the violin tended to be used a bit more by many composers. Our school instructor observed talent that we didn't know we had and referred us to Philip Teibel of the Buffalo Philharmonic. It's been an incredibly rewarding adventure ever since.

What advice do you have about practicing effectively?
I recommend slow consistent practice consisting of scales, arpeggios, etudes, and solo repertoire. Practice should be disciplined and intentional with specific goals for each session. For example, bowing and left hand techniques, phrasing, intonation, posture. Beginning students should strive for 30 minutes, intermediate students 45 minutes; advanced students 60 minutes. Solo performers will generally exceed 120 minutes to several hours. In any scenario, care must be exercised to avoid overuse injuries.

Chord Substitution

...within a key or progression. The chords used for substitution must have some harmonic relation to the original chord which means that substitutions only work if there’s a one or two note difference between the original and substituted chord.   Originally pioneered by jazz composers, chord substitutions are now widely used by writers working in many genres. They’re a great way to take routine chord progressions to new, unexpected places without altering the character or feel of a section of music.   Common types of chord substitutions   Diatonic chord substitutions-   In the key of C major, a C major 7th chord can easily be substituted...

Saxophone Warm-Ups: Practice Exercises for All Levels

...  The amount of time it takes to adequately warm up varies dependent on a few factors. Part of warming up is literally warming up. If it’s cold outside, it takes more time to warm up than if it’s hot outside. When I went for my graduate school audition in Ohio, it was freezing outside; the dead of winter in Northwest Ohio. The first few minutes of that specific warm-up consisted of running my hands under warm water. The amount of time warming up takes could also be dependent upon your playing schedule. If you have a very active performing schedule, ... Read More

As you treat the room, continue testing room acoustics, and make notes of how the problem areas have changed or moved.   Once you have used all the desired treatment options, re-perform the clap-test in the middle of the room. The flutter echoes should be noticeably reduced. Your footsteps in the empty room will likely sound different. Put on a song that has a wide and dynamic ... Read More
