Using my extensive performing and education experience, I teach students with passion and intent. Music theory, blues guitar, drumset, jazz bass, and rudimental drumming are just some of what I love to teach.
I love helping people. And I love music. So helping people learn to love music is the best way I can spend my time!
My kid already feels at ease, and motivated. This is a great start.
We will chat to determine goals, current skill level, and favorite type of music. From there we will make a plan and get to work!
I've been playing music for 17 years. I've played guitar and bass in jazz, rock, blues, country, marching band, and musical orchestra settings. I have performed with and taught multiple drum corps and indoor percussion groups for the past 6 years.
Half hour lessons are $25
Hour lessons are $40
My high school band director hired me after I graduated to teach guitar and bass in my old school district!
I have worked with students from age 5 to age 25. People with years of experience and people with none! I am always willing to teach anyone I feel qualified to.
Look for a "culture fit". Make sure the person teaching you doesn't make you feel pressured or awkward. For instance, I run my lessons very organically. We'll chat about stuff, then work on it. Any questions are welcome and there's no such thing as a dumb question. It is my job to teach you! You should be comfortable asking me about things you don't know.
