About this pro

I love helping students learn how to play instruments, from all of the band instruments to piano and guitar.  I first find out exactly what goals the student has and work together to help them reach their goals.

I have 28 years experience teaching the band instruments, piano and violin.  I have taught in Hobe Sound, FL, 24 years, Hanover, PA, 2 years and Loisville, KY, for 2 years.

I graduated from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with my Masters in Church Music in 1998.  In 1992 I graduated with a B.S. in Music Education from Pensacola Christian College and in 1993 I graduated from Hobe Sound Bible College with an A.A. in Bible.

In 2000 I started the Treasure Coast Summer Band Camp in Hobe Sound, FL, where I direct about 7 different band camps every summer.

I currently am employed full time at Hobe Sound Christian Academy and Hobe Sound Bible College where I direct 4th grade band, 5th grade band, middle school Concert Band, high school Symphonic Band and college Celebration Orchestra.  I also have the privilege of teaching about 50 private lesson students every week.

I am certified to teach with the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools.  I also am a member of Florida Bandmaster's Association.

I will be having band camp this summer, but I am waiting for a week or two to determine the exact dates. 

I am currently accepting new private lesson students.  First lesson is free!  I teach both in person and online lessons.  With over 8 years experience teaching online, I have a lot of great methods to help students learn quickly.

I am comfortable with teaching students ages 5-99 from beginning through intermediate levels and advanced levels on brass. 

I look forward to meeting you and helping you enjoy playing your instrument.

I thoroughly enjoy seeing my students succeed. It is rewarding to see students light up with excitement as they realize they are making progress and sounding better and better. I love hearing progress in my students and knowing that their patience and hard work has rewarded them with a beautiful sound. I also love to learn how parents as they are satisfied with their child's progress.

FAQs


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

I first find out what the student's musical background is and what their goals are.  I use a lot of affirmation as students learn.


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

I have a B.S. in music education and a Master's Degree in church music which gives me a background to help a variety of students.


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

I normally charge $25 per 30 minute lesson, $35 per 45 minute lesson and $45 per 60 minute lessons.


How did you get started teaching?

I enjoyed playing trombone so much in middle school, high school and college that I wanted to share the gift of music with others.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with a variety of students from ages 2-85.  I have taught several students with special needs.  I also taught a gentleman with alzheimers.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently I was teaching a young lady who had special needs.  When she made significant progress on her cornet, she radiated with a beaming smile.  It was rewarding to see her light up with satisfaction when she realized the good sound that she was making!


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

Try to find a teacher who affirms your progress, motivates you to practice and explains new concepts in a way that is easy to understand and apply.


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

Are they willing to put forth the time and effort to become a good musician?  Are you willing to keep playing and practicing even when you don't see a lot of immediate progress?
