In the 1st lesson, I always ask the student what their goals are, what kind of music they want to play, what problems they have, etc.  Then I test them on basic skills to find ‘holes’ in their knowledge/skills to find the right level to start.  I have an uncanny ability to discover their main problem areas and/or misunderstood terminology and get to work right away handling them. It's rewarding to see students very quickly begin to brighten up as they clear away years of confusion and musical barriers. I’ve met many seasoned pros who have holes in their knowledge or skill that have prevented them from reaching the ... View Profile

I have been teaching privately for 25 years. I started teaching back when I was in high school. Each student is unique and as such so is each lesson plan I prepare. I take care to teach appropriate brass pedagogy to help with your technique. We work on fun stuff to including duets, soloi, may a little improv, etc. Vocal students that are younger than 14 tend to get overlooked and I work with each on vowels and melodic warm ups to help sing naturally. No forced sing or belting in this studio. Vocal warm ups that are musical. You can do improv for voice as w student learns music theory. I prepare games to learn music theory. Also see my re ...
