What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Each student has very different reasons for picking up music, so I make a point to discuss their goals and help understand what they want to accomplish. Also, every student learns at a different pace, so I try to go at a methodical pace and not overload students with too much information at once.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have completed intensive training in Music at San Diego Mesa College, particulary in theory and guitar performance. I have also been teaching in the San Diego area privately for the past 8 years to all ages.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

The pricing system I have is $25 per half hour, and $50 per hour.

How did you get started teaching?

I fell in love with music when I was 12 years old, and when I started an internship when I was 18 at a non-profit art center ARTS (A Reason To Survive) I began training as a teacher, and have been teaching ever since. I also teach with a couple of other music studios and privately.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all ages and of all needs. My training extends to elementary, middle school, high school, college/adult ages, as well as students with special needs.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One of my drum students asked me to help them make a video montage of them playing to a couple of songs, and the process of seeing him review his playing, suggest ways to improve, and express an interest in teaching has really inspired me to continue doing what I love; teaching!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would suggest to have a conversation with them! Each teacher has a completely different method of teaching, some teach in a rigorous style, some directly from theory books, etc. and having a conversation with the teacher will help give you a sense of their teaching style and if it will fit with your own needs.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

A student should feel comfortable expressing their learning style, goals, and overall reasons for music. Not everyone is looking to pass an academic audition, and on the contrary, not everyone is looking to pick up a few chords on the guitar. They shoudl be able to express what they want to do and ask questions regarding their needs.
