I belive in a unique approach, tailored to fit each student's wants and needs. Because of this approach, I create custom lesson plans and pull from different methods. Some of these methods include; Essential Elements, Suzuki Violin School, Wohlfhardt Etudes, and Marc O'Connor fiddle method. For students involved in elementary school music programs, I create a balance between success in their school method book and music pieces outside of the method to enhance and increase musical skills. I try to find out what the student is interessted in, what each student's goals are, and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons engaging and fun.

I use a number of resources to teach students concepts in musical performance. This includes online resources and method books that enhance fundamentals and technique. I do believe that understanding of music theory is necessary to advance beyond the intermediate level, and this system has assisted in training many students over the years. Novice students are encouraged through movement and activities to teach concepts while intermediate players are given exercises that focus on instrumental technique to strengthen musicality. A general track of a novice to advanced student would begin with games to rate knowledge of tempo and dynamics, then progress to the Sound Innovation

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music. Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging Accomplishments helps fuel a students desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs. I always have patience with my students when they got questions and difficulties to learn. .

Because the electric guitar doesn’t require the large resonating shape of an acoustic guitar, they are generally much lighter and easier to transport. The simple design of an electric guitar, and the way that the strings are amplified, means that the strings have less tension and are closer to the fretboard. This distance from the frets is typically referred to as the action, and the low action is how electric guitarists are able to play such intricate, fast phrases and runs.   Acoustic ... Read More

Because you’ll be using that skill for the rest of your musical life.   Review: Why It Is Important in Suzuki Practice   Suzuki practice sessions are usually founded on the concept of review. You review the skills you have learned so that you can build upon them when you reach a new element. For example, let’s think about the straight bow on the strings.

Oxford Music states that by the year 1890 the F trumpet was all but extinct, except for the Royal College of Music in London, which stubbornly continued teaching it for several years past the turn of the century. For all practical purposes, though, the B flat and C trumpets arrived on the scene around the same time and with the same goal—to usurp the F and G trumpets with superior accuracy and agility.
