As a Music Teacher, I have taught in the Classroom for close to 30 years. I have performed with many bands and have played with Felix Cavaliere, John Sebastian,and Jazz artist Maynard Ferguson. My teaching style is diverse, positive and motivational. In studying music in College, there were essential study guides that would help make me the professional I am today. I had studies with Sal Salvadore and also Lee Ritenhour who are noted musicians with different approaches to playing. Their teaching techniques varied but was added to my methods of teaching students.

I try to have a very positive approach to teaching. I believe that if a student is told what they are doing wrong constantly, they will feel like they aren't good enough for the instrument, or they will lose interest. I instead focus on telling them what they are doing right, and offer suggestions on what they need to improve on.

I begin with developing sheet music literacy in my students right off the bat if they have no experience in reading music. I believe music literacy is one of the most important aspects of learning an instrument. I've always said, "not being able to read sheet music is like trying to be a writer who can't read, it makes no sense". I also begin with teaching proper form. Meaning how to hold the instrument and how to use proper technique. I also love teaching my students through music they like and will be motivated to learn. Music is supposed to be fun, and I do anything for my students so I can ensure that learning their instruments will be fun.

Since graduating from college as a music teacher, I have been giving private lessons for 38 years! It is sheer joy for me to be able to teach adults all the way down to kindergarten age students.  The approach and kind of music is so varied from one level to the next that it is fun for me to keep each student fully engaged and loving every minute of their lessons. The modern, up to date PIANO books that I use introduce ALL the styles including classical, pop, jazz, blues, boogie and ragtime.These books also cover music theory, technique and provide performance pieces. All my school-age students like to play the MUSIC MOUNTAIN game, where they climb up with weekly points for practicing and learning songs by memory. We keep track with a special practice record book. Prizes occur every 100 points. Ear training, finger technique, sight reading and music theory are important in learning the keyboard.  These concepts can be enjoyable since I use a variety of games like Music Checkers, Music Bingo, a Giant Music Hopscotch Staff (for young students) and large movable notes on a music staff board (for composition).

For beginning cello students of all ages, I normally use one of my teacher's method books: Cellocity by Helga Winold of Indiana University. As my cello students progress, I slowly introduce smaller pieces that can normally be found in Suzuki method books. After my cello students have advanced significantly, I begin to introduce more complex pieces that are found in the standard cello repertoire. Eventually, my students reach a level where they gain the ability to gauge their experience level and select their own pieces with my approval. Throughout the process, I also integrate tidbits of music theory and history to give the student a more well-rounded experience.  As for guitar and piano, I normally take a more custom approach to teaching that tends to not revolve around any specific method book. However, I typically teach beginning pianists and guitarists how to read through and play simple pieces of music so that they understand the fundamentals before moving on to a mix of songs or pieces that I select and songs or pieces that the student wishes to play so as to keep things fresh and exciting.

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.
