FAQs


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

When a student is just starting out. I feel the most important thing is having fun. So once we go through the basics, we typically will spend our time learning songs that the student enjoys. Once you get them started, all the technique and theory will fall in place along the way.


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

I graduated from San Jacinto College with my associates in musical composition. In addition to playing in local bands and jazz ensembles, I also enjoy composing small and large scale orchestrations. In addition, I have also been a sound technician for multiple venues.


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

the first lesson is always free, so you can check out my teaching style for yourself. After that, for in home lessons, it would be 30$ Per half hour. And 25$ per half hour at my studio.


How did you get started teaching?

Probably just like ever other teacher, one day I was playing music when a friend ask me more about it. Loving music, I was more than happy to teach them anything they wanted to know. Eventually word spread around and I started doing it more


What types of students have you worked with?

ive taught left handed people, people with physical handicaps, children, teens, adults, and the elderly. From just starting out to professional performer.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I was recently asked to participate in a water drive for charity. The experience was super rewarding, and with everyone's contribution we helped to donate over 200 gallons to the Houston food bank.


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

Make sure he is going to cater to where you are at in your studies, rather than pushing you along the same path. Also, always feel free to ask questions.


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

what particular thing draws you to music. Is it the genre? The musical ability? Is it the fun of learning something new? Or is just to enjoy creating something never before heard. The more you can pinpoint what you want to do, the easier it can be taught.
