I began to teach young children at elementary levels while at Indiana University. Despite their high-caliber collegiate music curriculum, they also have one of the world's reknown Suzuki method schools led by pedadogues who even started Joshua Bell. I was lucky enough to dive under their wing and really learn the fundamentals of Suzuki teaching, or inspiring fresh minds from the core level. Witnessing kids that once followed their parents to another lackluster lesson bouncing off the walls with excitement after experiencing an enjoyable lesson helped me to discover the passion in teaching.

My teaching experience varies for each of the instruments I instruct. I began teaching private lessons for guitar in 2004. My voice instruction began in 2009, and the rest of the listed instruments I began to teach in 2012. I believe consistent daily practice is essential for improvement in my students, and encourage my students to log their practice time. In the words of my professor Todd Woodbury, "You do not become a master from what you do within these lessons. You become great by how much effort you put into the application of my guidance through your own practice." I cannot make you the performer you want to be. I can only guide you through the process. This is why I am always excited to bring on a new student. Each student I have worked with holds a special place with me. I strive for those key moments when my student comes to a new musical understanding.

Music has been a big part of my life since I was in the third grade when I first joined the school choir. Eventually I migrated to playing Saxophone in middle school then to low brass in high school. After high school, I made the trombone my primary instrument, though I continued to play euphonium and tuba in college in various ensembles. I have had the opporunity to play all over the country including the Latin Jazz Grammys, the Playboy Jazz Festival, Central Avenue Jazz Festival, the IAJE conference, and for the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM). I have also had the honor of meeting music icons and supporters such as Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Poncho Sanchez, Cacau, Justo Almario, Joe Lavano, Radiohead, Hugh Hefner, Jorge Lopez, Hilary Clinton and Jay Leno.

Instruments:

My musician experiences began early on the piano, then the violin and flute were added shortly after that. I began teaching/coaching in high school, and continued on teaching privately while majoring in music in college. I received numerous scholarships for my playing. My students continue to play today. I am always thoughtful and positive about my teacher to student comments, giving encouragement as much as possible. I am a lifelong learner, and music is an excellent way to promote this interest.

I like to hear from the students what they want to achieve. Whether that be short-term or long-term, I am willing to tailor my lessons in order to accommodate those wants and needs. Setting those goals is helpful for keeping the students engaged and focused on accomplishing those coveted goals. While I value fun learning, there are certainly times when my teaching has to be methodical and meticulous -- I don't think one can learn violin effectively without being tedious. In identifying this, I definitely think there is a good balance and throughout my years of experience, I've learned what that happy medium is to effectively partner with students in reaching their goals.

Opera Voice Types

...opera!   The Singers   Imagine walking home after community or high school choir rehearsal and someone exclaiming to you, “Wow! What a beautiful coloratura voice!” You would probably be confused.   Most of us don’t go beyond the typical bass, tenor, alto, and soprano choral designations, but in opera, there are terms that describe fullness of voice as well as the range. Here is your guide to opera voice types, from the light and athletic “coloratura” soprano voice to the thunderous “basso profundo.”     Female Opera Voice Types   The Soprano Just in case the opera voice types weren’t challenging...

The Haydn Trumpet Concerto

...An Anniversary Celebration: The Haydn Trumpet Concerto The story of Haydn’s trumpet concerto and how it has been played since. Not every trumpet concerto stands the test of time, and even fewer find their way into popular culture. The Haydn Trumpet Concerto has accomplished both.   It has been featured on the Late Show with Jay Leno and in Mark Wahlberg’s The Big Hit, but Haydn would hardly care about the pop culture references even if he were alive to see it happen. What the masterful composer would probably care about is the fact that his concerto has been performed ... Read More

Suzuki Violin: A Balanced Approach to Studying the Violin

...start learning to play. One rule of thumb to keep in mind: if a child can stand and stay focused for 10-15 seconds as you or a teacher counts, then the child is probably ready. If that sounds like too long of a time to stand still and focus, then you should let the child mature a little more before starting with lessons. The maturity point varies with every child – wait until the child is ready. That will save you a lot of frustration later on.

Registration with the SAA means that the teacher has taken training in the Suzuki methodology and is familiar with the repertoire in the books. Many teachers will broadcast this information on their personal bios (including their Musika profile!), or with other advertising. You can also see if they are listed as part of the Suzuki Association’s online reference page. Ask the teacher how long beginner lessons will be, and how ... Read More

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.
