Students can take lessons on a primary instrument (drums, vibraphone, marimba, or general percussion) but all can learn about ear training, and musicianship.  Most drum teachers don't also teach mallet percussion.  I am an active performing musician, and share my tips and experiences from the real world as an experienced musician. I hold a Bachelor's of Music in Jazz Studies from the California Jazz Conservatory in Berkeley. I won first place in the "Jazz Search West" soloist competition in 2014. I have earned several other awards and acknowledgements  for my playing and composing over the years.  Students can bring music ... View Profile

In my teaching, I try to integrate the world of music in it's various dialects into your instrument or area of music study. I don't practice music from the perscpective of ego, I treat it as a practice, in the broadest sense of the term. The day to day work of playing an isntrument is about identifying (or even seeking out!) issues and solving them. It's as much about HOW you practice as it is about HOW MUCH. Anyone who learns the correct practicing techniques can increase the speet at which they improve. ... View Profile

My philosophy of teaching piano and music is an integrated, individualistic approach. My responsibility as a teacher is to tap into the enthusiasm of the student - what excites them and captivates them about music and nurture that curiosity. While covering the spectrum of theory, technique, and depth of sounds - it is also important to keep it fresh with innovative approaches to learning different concepts and I achieve this using many different ways honed over the years. 'Practice' has become a loaded word with learning music and I encourage individuals to be self-motivated from their own desire to learn and reap the benefits of what 'practi ... View Profile
