My method is very flexible and student specific.  Everyone learns slightly differently and has their own unique strengths.  In general, I have a "sound before sight" method.  Students learn music thoroughly, aurally and theoretically before trying to read it off the page.  Imagine trying to learn a language by being handed a book. We then use your innate understanding of the music to inform your technique and the way you approach the instrument.  I often use the Suzuki books for repertoire, though I'm not a Suzuki practitioner.  I find they have a logical progression of pieces and are easy to get your hands on.  I use a variety of etude books, completely dependent on the level of the student, their specific difficulties and their instrument.

I understand that everyone learns differently so I do my best to approach every topic from several angles.  Music will be learned by sight, sound, and even the feel of chorepgraphy to help all types of students complete thier goals

Instruments:

I typically start the first lesson getting to know the students, the habits of their body: pertaining to lip shape, stance, how their fingers support the weight of the instrument, finger placement on keys. Once we build awareness to our body's habits, we use these tools and build from the ground, up. These tools help us to develop a better tone, tambre, and allow us to open up so we support from our diaphragms and produce a strong, projected sound. Once these ideas are attended to, they stay mindful as we continue the journey to becoming artistic players. I like to keep at least one etude and one solo piece on file for lessons, though other exercises are GREAT ways to learn, practice, and improve upon.

Classical Music in Cartoons: Disney’s Fantasia

...dramatic works here — it’s full of demons, magic, and yes, the Devil. Ave Maria by Franz Schubert: This choral rendition provided the perfect atmosphere for the animated Roman Catholic imagery during this section of Fantasia.   The Philadelphia Orchestra recorded the Fantasia soundtrack in the spring of 1939. Stokowski conducted, and the orchestra played in their usual concert hall (at that time), the Academy of Music on South Broad Street.   Most film critics loved the insertion of classical music in cartoons, while some prominent American classical musicians and composers, on the other hand, reacted negatively to Fantasia.   Stokowski’s arrangements and orchestrations drew...

The only challenging chord transition here is the opening D to C progression where the D quickly transitions to the C after two pickup notes.

How to Play Bruce Springsteen's “Born to Run” Saxophone Solo

...figure out what the root is. The only way to do this really is to do it by ear. Once you believe you’ve found the root, try playing the scale and arpeggio along with the recording to make sure it sounds correct. The next step is to figure out the harmony of each section. Most of the time, you can listen to the bass. But, this isn’t always the case. The bass is playing a pedal tone in the first four bars of “Born to Run”. But, after that, it plays the roots. To accurately figure out the harmony of ... Read More

...made to produce the instruments you will be considering.   Not Every Viola is Created Equal   Consequently, with so much experimentation among luthiers in constructing the optimal instrument, there is considerable variation among violas. Even two violas of the same body length can vary significantly. To clarify, at this point I am speaking purely of major physical differences in construction, not of the character and sound profile of each instrument. The latter are variations that occur throughout the entire string family, as makers can influence the sound of their instruments by altering materials and process, giving each violin, viola, cello, ...

The Morningside Lights Parade: Bringing Communities Together Through Merry Music-Making

...of “The Imagined City,” the aim of the event was to explore the concept of urban planning and development in the diverse neighborhoods that straddle the park, Morningside Heights and Harlem, through community-based performance. At nine p.m., over two-hundred children and adults embarked on a lantern-lit procession, carrying large architectural puppets and small paper lanterns, marching to the tune of a world-premiere composition written by local composer Nathan Davis. A group holding instruments ranging from brass trumpets to plastic Melodicas, strolled near the composer, who, judging from his tousled hair, long white coat and pockets full of instruments, looked more like a kooky scientist than an established musician in ...
