About this pro

My 42-year-old school the Bloom School of Jazz has taught thousands of musicians from around the world.  Amateurs to seasoned musicians have come here to up there game. I have my own teaching methods that are different that what is normally taught. I teach music as a language. 

I normally do a 30-minute evaluation to make sure that we are a good fit for each other. In the evaluation, I check out your theory knowledge, technique,  ear and improvisation.

My biggest enjoyment is to help students find the music that lurks within, and show them how to bring it out.
