I start first by asking the student about their music background and what they are interested in learning, what type of music they like, who do they listen to.
Next I assess their current music skills. Specically looking at tunes/repertoire, scales, arpeggios, chords, theory, technique, and their ear/audiation harmonic, melodic and rhythmic level.
Then I design a program that is specifically designed to improve weak areas and to attain their musical goals.
I have a MFA in Jazz Performance and have been a professional musician for over 40+ years. I am also an adjunct instrument instructor at university.
Most students take 1hr lessons once a week. Advance Students and Special Studies Students either Bi-Weekly or Monthly.
As a child my musical ability was often ahead of other music students, and when my teachers could were not available to teach they asked me to teach their students for them. Later as a Professional Musician, teaching, mentoring and "passing on the flame" to aspiring musicians has gone hand in hand as a performer and artist.
I've worked with all levels from Beginneer to Conservatory Students.
