Piano, Singing, Music Performance, Music Theory
Have you ever wondered if you could play the piano like the person you have heard of admired? The answer if Yes! As a private piano teacher for the past 20 years, I have had the pleasure of seeing students as young as 4 and as old as 70 enjoy seeing their talent become alive as we unlock what has been inside.
I began piano lessons at the age of six and continued for the next 14 years with private piano study. This gave me many levels of education about playing the piano, which I share with my 40 students each week. At the age of 13, I also began to realize that I could listen to a song, look at the chord and notes on the music, and put them together to make the song sound like it should. This was fantastic! I realized I could play by ear and read music, which is a strong focus of my teaching methods...to make sure a student is proficient in both areas.
While attending Oral Roberts University, I also studied music there. I am currently pursuing a plan for a Masters of Music degree.
I am currently serving as Minister of Music at a local church, where I attend with my wife of 18 years and three children.
Bass Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Piano, Classical Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory
Being born into a highly musical family, I have been involved in music my whole life. By the age of about 13, I began giving lessons to my friends and peers, from classical to contemporary styles. Since then I’ve had a passion for helping others develop their own musical voice, and in return it helps me examine my own playing and teaching techniques. Throughout grade school and beyond, I’ve played and performed with several bands ranging in a wide variety of music including blues, country, folk, classic rock and heavy metal. In the fall of 2008 I began to intensively involve myself in the art and life which is classical guitar. Working on technique and interpretation became a large part of my practice schedule and life. Building up my classical repertoire from all time periods including Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic and styles such as Jazz and Flamenco, I began performing at school recitals, competitions, public/private parties, and hard rock/metal shows around DFW and throughout Texas. I've placed in top 3 in several international competitions for solo guitar, duets and small ensembles. I try my best to always live through music, and in return music lives through me.
