In addition to trumpet lessons, I teach beginning piano, beginning brass instruments, beginning flute, beginning clarinet, jazz and classical music theory, jazz composition and arranging, Sibelius skills, and jazz improvisation.

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

I customize each lesson to the individual student, focusing lessons on music that they will have fun learning. I am process-oriented, and incorporate fundamentals and ear training into all lessons. Depending on the student's experience level, a typical first lesson will be focused on getting to know the student's goals, introducing some broad technical concepts, and doing a lot of playing!

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

I have a BM in Jazz Trumpet Performance from Oberlin Conservatory. I am the Program Director for MUSIC Inc., a non-profit organization that provides free music lessons and orchestral training to students on the West side of Chicago. I have taught privately and in groups through organizations including MUSIC Inc, Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Jazz Philharmonic, and Stanford Jazz Workshop. 

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

I charge $50 for an hour-long lesson, $40 for a 45-minute lesson, or $30 for a half hour. Depending on your location, I can come to you for an additional travel stipend. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students of all ages and experience levels.
