 I've been actively teaching for nearly 35 years. Teaching children as well as adults. I graduated from Drake University in 1989 with a Bachelor of Music Education. While in college I played professionally in the Des Moines Symphony and was the winner of the Young Artist Contest which afforded me the privilege of featured soloist with the Drake Symphony Orchestra. I've travelled Europe performing in America's Youth in Concert and have played at Carnegie Hall, Notre Dame. I've taught in the public schools for 20 years and have taught from my private studio for nearly 35 years. My joy is seeing my student's dream realized.

No two students are ever alike. I've learned that using only one method may not benefit all students. Therefore, I use a variety of methods, some of which include Hanon, the Bastien Series, Suzuki technique for Piano and Violin, and countless others depending on what the student wishes to achieve. I have found that my most successful (and satisfied) students are the ones that express to me their specific musical goals, and then I am able to find a combination of methods to help them practice, rehearse, and refine their style of interest.

I have been teaching for 18 years in Culver City, and most recently I moved to Reseda, CA.  I also teach at Bloom School of Music, and I am the Cello Coach for the Open Academy as well.  I graduated from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, with the best education from professor Jeffrey Solow, and after graduating I was offered a tour in Europe for 8 months. I performed in many Opera Houses, and I was thrilled to be able to perform in the many world class operas houses. Today I also have my own orchestra, and I am Executive Director, and Music Director, and we open our first concert on October 26, 2013 with "Classical Music Meets the Moveis" in Culver City.

I like to start out beginning string students with Essential Elements 2000 by the Hal Leonard company. They have a complete system which includes professionally recorded accompaniments which provide a model for the student to hear how to play with good intonation, tone and rhythm which are the most important basics. In addition I recommend other sheet music with piano accompaniment or books with CD accompaniments that can be performed for friends and family. Students at the intermediate and advanced levels are given books and sheet music that develop skill playing scales, arpeggios, higher positions, etudes and vibrato. For adults I ask what they are interested in and find appropriate music that they find interesting and fun.

As soon as I meet with a student or a group of students, I make sure they are welcomed by an energetic teacher before getting started on their lesson. I try to keep the student(s) engaged by showing them different ways and approaches to music from books and my own personal approaches to help them grow knowing their teacher is well experienced. Since their is a lot for a percussionist than just playing with sticks on a drum, there is no doubt that the endless possibilities in teaching students the various instruments will help keep them engaged as well being more excited about music.

How To Sing And Play Piano At the Same Time

...play C and F major chords in one hand with half notes while singing the chord names in quarter notes. Feel free to experiment with different combinations of rhythms to sing and play with when you feel ready.       Now that you’ve worked on creating independence between your voice and hands we can add an actual vocal melody into the exercise. Singing over the same C and F major chords, you’ll now sing a simple 4-note melody. For these notes you can sing “Do-Re-Mi-Re” or any other syllables you prefer.

Guitar Lessons For Adults: Taking Guitar Lessons as an Adult

...their kids is a great idea. This way the parent and kids spend time together in lessons, and both parties learn a new skill while keeping each other accountable during the week for practicing. A parent can’t say, “Hey Jimmy, you need to practice the guitar,” if they haven’t practiced the guitar themselves. If you’re serious about learning music over the next few years, what an incredible gift it could be for your family to make learning how to play the guitar a part of your household routine.

Suzuki Practice: A Daily Event

...What can you do? Number one, remember, you are the practice coach. A sports coach doesn’t take “I don’t want to” for an excuse to skip practice. You can’t, either. Your job is to gently, yet firmly, guide the child into the practice session and get it done. Chances are, once your child is in the middle of the practicing, he’ll forget his frump about practicing and will be just as excited as ever to finally play “Lightly Row” without dropping the toy car off the violin. But if there is sickness or injury, or just a hard day, cut back. Many years ago, the ... Read More

...Intermediate Rhythm This is an intermediate rhythm guitar lesson for the song “Roll in my Sweet Baby’s Arms.” This will involve bass runs to each chord, hammer-ons and pull-offs, and a more in-depth look at the G-run.
