I have worked with students ages 7 to 65 . I have had total beginners to professional that are board with their playing or need fresh ideas . I've taught in a private school for over ten years as well with kids from first to eight grade one kn one and in groups
I've also run several band camps playing pop, rock , soul , and jazz
I recently have been touring with a 4 piece rock group that plays with 60 piece symphony orchestras around the country to sold out houses . On one of our tours we got to do a show and tell with all the elementary schools in the area and had the kids up on stage to sing with us . That was amazing

what styles do you teach
what is your performing experience
how long have you been teaching
