I take the first lesson and asses where the student is at in musical development, and I tailor a plan to their needs. Depending on where they are at we could start anywhere from learning to read music, to working on music theory and performing at a high level.
I studied at The University Of Miami in the Jazz Instrumental Music program where I studied with world renowned musicians and educators; such as Gary Burton, Benny Golson, Shelly Berg, and Terence Blanchard.
I have also worked with and learned from educators at the highest level of the Marching Arts, Symphonic, and Jazz mediums.
I charge $60/hour an $35 a half hour. I reccomend only a half hour for students in elementary school. Around 5th grade I reccomend moving to hour long lessons.
I have worked with students as young as 7, and as old as 55. Age and experience are not an issue, all I need is for the student to want to learn.
