Instruments: Piano Voice

I am a believer of structure AND fun. I typically start students with basic technical work, combined with creative games to keep the skills relevant and interesting. Then I introduce more complicated process and ideas into the mix, while allowing the students to find out their own voices. I can't prescribe one way of teaching to differnet people, therefore I won't until I get to meet that student! :) An avid lover of dance and yoga, I incorporate lots of movement games, body work, and breathing exercises in my lessons.

Instruments: Piano Guitar Voice

I began my teaching career about 7 years ago, during my senior year of high school. I have taught lessons for both piano and guitar consistently since that time, including my time as the Piano Instructor at Cadenza Academy in Portland, OR. I like to let the students navigate the material they learn, as I feel that they should have complete control of what they are focusing their money and time on. Read More

Instruments: Voice Flute

For beginning Flute students who are children, I typically start with Hal Leonard's Essential Elements.  Once the student has progressed to have a grasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire appropriate for their firset recital performance.  For adults, I try to find out what the student is interested in, and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter their ability level.

Instruments: Voice Saxophone Clarinet

I'm a musician first and foremost.  This means that it is not my 'job', it is my life!  The first concert that I produced was when I was 16 years old, and it featured the legendary jazz clarinetist Woody Herman and the Thundering Herd.  Since that time, I have been performing, conducting, producing concerts, composing music and teaching students.  I have performed with a wide variety of classical and jazz and pop musicians: from The Brubeck Brothers, Diane Schuur, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Melissa Manchester; to the Oregon String Quartet and Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra.

Instruments: Voice

My teaching style heavily emphasizes repetition; I prefer students to work repeatedly on musical phrases and voice concepts to create consistency and make once difficult feats easy. This assures that the student is able to use lessons learned in future situations, and helps them to realize their ability to accomplish goals and challenge themselves toward maximal progress. Furthermore, successful repetition builds confidence that a student is able to succeed and be proud of what they have accomplished. Read More

Instruments: Piano Guitar Voice Saxophone Clarinet Bass Guitar Synthesizer Ukulele Music Keyboard Electric Guitar Classical Guitar Acoustic Guitar

For kids I find that having a large quantity of music to learn at each level gives more variety and sense of achievement, so I usually recommend beginning students have multiple books to aid in learning. For example a young piano student will study from lesson, theory, performance, and technique books each week. This yields a well-rounded student who is proud of their achievements and eager to move forward. For adults I recommend a lesson/theory combination book at least to help with reading music.

Instruments: Piano Voice Synthesizer Keyboard

I started learning piano as a child, but it was in high school that I realized I really wanted to pursue playing keyboards, because it allowed me a way to express myself. I later attended Mt. Hood Community College, famous for its jazz program, where I played keyboards and sang in select choirs and vocal jazz groups. After graduating, I directed the college Gospel Ensemble for two years before working full-time at a large local church, where I was Music Director, a worship leader, and keyboardist. Read More

When will I start to see results?
Each lesson has a detailed a measurable student-led goal. With regular practice and patience anyone can find success within a short period of time, of course keeping in mind that it will time and work to reach your bigger goals.

What advice do you have about practicing effectively?
Consistency is key; it is more valuable to practice 10 minutes everyday than to practice 1 hour a week. With slow practice you'll grow quickly, but with fast practice you'll grow slower. Use of metronome, practice fundamentals 2-5+min each practice session. Audio/video record your practice to best see your progress. Finally, find your bliss in music , for me, that was playing video game music as well as playing with jazzy backing tracks; finding your bliss in music will help give you motivation to keep practicing.

Why did you choose your primary instrument?
I chose the clarinet because I really loved it's sound, the unique lows and highs along with the different ways that the clarinet can be used.

What musical accomplishments are you most proud of?
I'm most proud of the work that I put into my senior clarinet recital in college. I managed two medium-sized student groups, got the joy of performing one of my own compositions, and even put together unique art and videos to go along with the performance. It took over a year to put together and I'm very pleased with the results.

Have any of your students won awards or been selected for special honors? How have they succeeded?
During my first year teaching I had a third grader who I gave music/piano lessons to and I later nominated them for the NW Young Musicians award, it's been years since then but I hear they are still active in learning music will start in orchestra next year.

What do you think is the hardest thing to master on your instrument?
On clarinet I think that the hardest thing to master is going over the break; from A to B, from basically no fingers to all fingers on it took me months to even make it work, and I still practice that shift every practice session. On piano I think that the hardest thing to master is playing different parts on each hand On guitar I think that the hardest thing to master is playing while singing

If you have a Music Degree, what is it in (Performance, Education, Musicology, Theory, Composition, etc) and why did you choose that degree?
My Bachelors of Arts is in K-12 Music Education, I am endorsed in instrumental, vocal, and general music. during my education I learned theory, history, all instruments, jazz, piano, and composition.

When did you decide to become a professional musician? Was it a gradual decision or was there a defining moment for you?
I decided that I wanted to musical profession from a young age, I've always loved learning about, playing, and creating music, it runs through my very soul. However, it wasn't till late high school that I started to gain my passion for becoming a teacher, I remember my senior year of high school I played with the high school music groups and then would go over the middle school and help out with the band and choir. Each opportunity I've gotten to share my passion has been very reaffirming that this is what I want to do with my life and am always looking forward to my next musical adventure.

DeLay guided students like Itzhak Perlman, Sarah Chang, Midori, Nigel Kennedy, and Gil Shaham and helped to shape them as musicians.

The Best Age to Start Flute Lessons

...too young, often times they will have trouble holding the instrument properly and will lean over to one side while playing. This can be both uncomfortable and unproductive, since they won’t be able to get a good tone while playing – if any tone at all. Luckily, there is a solution for younger/smaller students – the curved head joint. A curved head joint reduces the overall length of the flute, while not affecting the overall sound quality or technique. Typically, many students will seek formal instruction on the flute as they begin playing with a school orchestra in junior high, around age 11 or 12. Flute lessons will give these students an advantage in that a strong musical foundation will be laid which includes the study of musicianship, music theory, technique, and solo flute repertoire. ...
