I teach all ages from beginning through Professional. My object would be to teach and have the student enjoy his or her instrument enough to look forward to the recommended practice session every day. I am very motivating and competent as I was trained by College professionals to teach and perform at a high level.

I have been teaching for about 10 years now, both privately and in various music lesson stores throughout the Tampa Bay area. I have taught students ranging from 5 to 60 years of age. My students have been accepted into Blake Performing Arts High School, All County Orchestras, Tampa Bay Youth Orchestras, Tampa Metropolitan Youth Orchestras, and even Florida's All State Orchestras. I have also been able to develop my students' abilities from being last in their orchestras to first chair in their music programs.

Instruments:

As an avid music instructor of three different instruments, I have a very diverse teaching background that encompasses approximately six years of cumulative musical training to students of all ages. As a patient and understanding teacher, I have worked with students with Asperger's syndrome as well as students with severe ADHD.  In my lessons, I emphasize consistent practice that is paired with consistent positive and encouraging feedback so that my students truly learn to grow not only as musicians, but as individuals. This is to say that, in my studio, mistakes are part of the process and not necessarily to be frowned upon. Even at a high level of musicianship, I teach my students that the true meaning of music does not lie in the perfection of a performance, but in the communication of a deeper passion that mistakes cannot overshadow.

Instruments:

It is extremely important to me that every student benefits from his or her own personally tailored lesson. This means that there is no "cut and paste" lesson plan to use with each student. Once I get to know the student, I will be able to judge their level of playing ability, their ability to read music, how good their posture is, how good their hand position is, etc. It is also important to me to get to know the student's personality, so that when teaching, I can help make the student feel as comfortable as possible during the lesson. Then, we must determine what the student wants to learn, and figure out the best way to about learning whatever that may be. Finally, we will determine the student's short-term and long-term goals and keep track of these in a weekly planner or notebook.

“Iris” - Goo Goo Dolls

...Easy Guitar Chords Arranged for Beginners   American alternative rock band, the Goo Goo Dolls, originally recorded “Iris” for the soundtrack of 1998 film City of Angels, the song was later included on the band’s sixth album Dizzy Up the Girl. The song has contributed greatly to the band’s success. Iris chords feature an unusual guitar tuning in which most of the strings are tuned to D, giving the guitar a chorus-like effect. It also has an unusual time feel switching between 4 and 3.   “Iris” has become one of the biggest rock hits from the 90s and it’s also one of... Read More

...chord of all. It is also perfectly suited to playing with the previously mentioned G major chord. The Em chord is played by placing your index finger on the A string, second fret and your middle finger on the D string, second fret. The rest of the strings are allowed to ring out open.     Popular songs such as “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi and “Purple Haze” by Jimi Hendrix are played in the key of Em. This is the easiest guitar key to play in, as all of the open notes on the instrument fall within the key.   C Major (Cmaj) ... Read More

Dealing with Frustration when Studying Music

...you are getting the most out of your music lessons.   Play Slowly One of the most common mistakes that beginner students make is trying to play songs too quickly. When you are first learning a new piece, play it slowly. Very slowly. Take the time to understand the proportional differences between each note. For instance, if you need to stretch a whole note out to last a full two seconds so that you can play a passage of 16th notes in proper time, do so. Using a metronome can help this process as it will keep your tempo steady. Don’t rush through music, as it’s only going to ... Read More

The Accordion: Bluegrass Music's Forgotten Instrument

...Bluegrass is a music with a long and storied history, starting with the first immigrants to settle in the Appalachian mountains. An aspect of that history that is being explored more and more frequently, as modern bands seek to expand the sound to its fullest, is the use of the accordion. This use of the accordion is not due to modern musicians looking to experiment just for the sake of experimenting. The first Bluegrass band, Bill Monroe and The Blue Grass Boys, had an accordion player in their band during early iterations of their group, but settled on not having one just before ... Read More

The Best Age to Start Drum Lessons

...while at the same time an eight year old who is small for their age could still have issues. Another issue is that of the maturity of the student – again, a mature six year old may be perfectly suited to start drum lessons. The other factor to consider is the student’s academic skills. There is a lot of work that goes into learning the drums beyond the physical end of things. The student should be able to learn how to read sheet music while also developing all of the techniques of rhythm and counting. Musical notation for drums and percussion is different than that for tonal instruments, so for some younger students, this can prove to be slightly difficult. ... 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.
