I teach in the Education Building of a Church that has individual classrooms, where lessons will be held, all of which are off a common area where parents can wait during the lesson.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring my instrument and a music stand for myself, and I assume the student will have their own as well. There are specific collections of songs and exercises that the student should be ready to purchase based on their level of playing and will be determined after our initial lesson. Students will want to continue to invest in other collections as they progress and I will occasionally provide additional materials as appropriate.

I have a Bachelor of Music Education and taught middle school strings in the Houston area public schools. I utilize methods of Kodaly (certified Level I) in creating a holistic approach to teaching music and use the songs and progression of the Suzuki School for beginners. I incorporate ear-training, music theory, and music history into learning about music in addition to the mechanics of playing a string instrument. My ultimate goal is to help each student become their own teacher!
I am more than happy to explore ways in which students with special needs can engage music through listening, reading, writing, singing and even playing an instrument...let's talk!!

I started studying music when I was 5 on violin. At age of 6 I added piano. At middle school I started learning clarinet and saxophone to enrich my background. A bit later I added guitar. I was taking the most comprehensive classes which included ensembles, chorus, orchestra, band, solfeggio and music theory. I continued my music education at Music College on violin for another 4 years. My family moved to Israel, and I continued my education at Jerusalem Music Academy on violin and guitar, and graduated with Bachelor Degree in Music Performance and Education.
During my carrier I was always actively playing. I worked in symphony and chamber orchestras, concerting with bands, jazz, rock and pop groups. I am advanced player in guitar, violin, bass, piano in many genres and styles. Having perfect pitch, I instantly integrate and play by ear, with fluent improvisation. I have experience in orchestration and composition. I have years of experience in professional music recording as well as live sound. I served as invitational studio player and recorded many music albums.
I am teaching for more than 15 years, both children and adults. I am helping my students to discover the world of music in unique learning environment which we create together. I believe that time together with the teacher should be most comprehensive by growing his/her instrument skills as well as feeding the student with information to promote their intelligence.
I do my best keeping my students interested, encourage home practices and improve proficiency. Every student gets individual attention. I plan my lessons, methodology and repertoire based on background and skills, and, of cause, I truly enjoy my students progressing. I have many students staying with me for many years.
