I prefer that students enjoy what they're learning, it's easier to learn when you're having fun!
I've worked with a variety of ages (4-65) and backgrounds (inlcuding special needs/learning disabilities).
I take student input very seriously, so you get a say in what you learn.
Aside from being a working musician out in the field. With teaching I absolutely love seeing "lightbulb" moments. These are the moments where the information finally "clicks" in the student's brain, you can see a wonderful look of understanding on their face and it is so rewarding.

I like to take the first lesson to assess skill level and introduce the student to how I like to run my lessons. We work on a few warm ups and answer any questions, then pick out a song or two for the student to focus on.
Bachelor of Music from Wayne State University and Master of Music from George Mason, 8 years of independent teaching experience, and a lifetime of performing!
All ages, all backgrounds, any genre! I specialize in classical music, however I have taken special interest in pop music over the last few years since so many of my students have such heavy interest.
The most important thing is feeling comfortable! Music is a very vulnerable thing, and when we learn we are opening ourselves up, find a teacher that helps you feel comfortable while navigating the concepts.
