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

There is always an assessment period for the first few weeks to determine the student's level, knowledge, and interests.  Once a better understanding is established, we can move forward with a typical lesson strategy, which involves a heavy focus on repertoire so the student can start playing with friends as soon as possible.  For example, at the beginning of every lesson, I ask the student what questions they have from our last lesson, how they feel about things we've talked about in general, and briefly summarize the topics that we've worked on.

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

I studied music at the Hartt School of Music and have two years of experience teaching over 30 private lessons students and classroom instruction.  

How did you get started teaching?

My first students came to me asking for lessons, which were informal.  Later on, I substitued for a music teacher friend in his studio and became the full time teacher after his availability decreased.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have taught adults, children, and teenagers at all levels of development.

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

It is important to commit to music lessons for a long period of time in order to see any results.  The biggest mistake students make is quitting too soon.

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

For music lessons, students should consider who their favorite artists and bands are, what instruments those artists play, and any other goals that the student may have.  There is no single right way to learn music, so a teacher can't help a student without some type of understanding of what the student wants.
