FAQs


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

I start with the students' goals for themselves.  From there I devise a course of study which will include some note-reading skills and some improvisatory skills as well as technical studies and tone studies.  I encourage students to acquire a method book or song book in a style if their choice, which I supplement with open-sohrce materuals frim the internet.  I offer my students to perform in a low-pressure, casual environment with the Tarrabt Performance League.


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

I hold a bachelors degree and a masters degree UB music from UT Austin and completed my postgraduate studies in music at Indiana University and University of North Texas.  I have taught private and classroom music for many years.


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

My rate is for myself travelling to your home for lessons at 30.00 per half-hour and 50.00 per hour.


How did you get started teaching?

I began teaching music when I was 17.00 as a way to earn money while I was in music school.  I enjoyed teaching and still do.  I feel everyone has the ability to play an instrument or sing, and I am delighted with how much enjoyment it brings to people's lives.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have taught every age from every level.  I have taught people with diverse disabilities.  I have taught individually and in classroom settings.  It is never too late to learn something new., and with most children age 4 and up it is not too early if the parents are willing to participate.  I have taught senior citizens with no prior experience who have become quite accomplished.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I am especially find of the series of recital events produced by the Tarrant Performance League, which offers students a chance to present their music in a relaxed environment for their friends and families.  Several of these recitals are given every semester.


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

I would advise a student to look for a teacher who has an open mind about musical style but who is strong in the teaching of technique, tone (where applicable) and theory.  It is a good idea to make sure teachers are comfortable with the studets' age bracket, career goals where applicable, and special needs.


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

All students should ask themselves whether they are willing to practice their instrument in a daily basis.  Parents of students who are minors should be willing to assist the students in the discipline of daily practice.  The more regular the practice, the more the student will excel, and the more enjoyable the lessons will be.
