About Me

Education Experience:

Private Lessons - 22 years
Public and Magnet Schools - 7 years

I've tutored 100’s of students from ages 4 to 58. Teaching primarily saxophone I've also tutored on Clarinet, Flute, piano, guitar, bass, percussion, tuba, trumpet and voice. I also give instruction in music theory, improvisation, arranging, composition, engraving, music notation, and general studio operations from recording to engineering. I have given lessons privately and under many school and magnet programs from Iowa, Miami and currently the Nashville school systems.

I hold a Degree from the highly accredited University of Miami in Coral Gables Florida, and have also taken courses at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls Iowa in classical performance and education.

Professional Experience:

As a musician I have traveled to and performed in over 51 countries around the world, all the major cities in the US and many famous venues in New York City, London and Rome. I've appeared with such artists as: Michael Brecker, Arturo Sondoval, Jerry Bergonzi, David Sanborn, Bob Mintzer, David Liebman, Joe Lovano, Jamey Aebersold, Bobby Shew, Poncho Sanchez, Duffy Jackson, American Idol's Kimberely Locke, Earth wind and Fire, Lionel Richie, Clarence Clemets, William Shatner, The Miami Heat American Airlines Arena Band, and most recently in Nashville with Steve Martin’s Bluegrass Band.

Student Lesson Details:

Most importantly, I believe music should be fun and music lessons should also be fun. Not only is it important to learn music but also to PLAY IT! I teach a simple and effective system to all students learning music or an instrument for the first time. It is my goal to achieve that students potential in the shortest amount of time and at the highest level.

It is important that all students learn the fundamentals of the language of music however I’m very flexible to each student’s individual needs and desires.

Teacher Equipment and Studio:

The lesson studio is located in the heart of Nashville’s Music Row. It is a professional recording studio and an isolated space offering a noise free environment. The studio is also equipped with a waiting area where parents can view the lesson through a large glass window. There is also a lavatory and free parking.

The studio offers professional recording gear and an 88 weighted key piano. I can also provide all lesson materials and books required for learning and some additional instruments are also available.

**Special services**

For the same price as the lesson time I can also provide instrument repair service. I have many years experience working on saxophones, clarinets, flutes and other instruments dealing with general maintenance, to complete overhaul. Please inquire for more details.

About Me

As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed performing music. I can remember during my elementary school years how I would play drums during church service. Some days I would sneak in my dad's closet to play his saxophone. I began learning how to play saxophone in middle school and by the time I was in high school I was learning piano, performing jazz, and composing music.
I went on to get a Bachelor of Music at the University of North Texas. I have been performing professionally for over 18 years. I also have taught band for 11 years in Dallas ISD. I enjoy teaching and mentoring other up and coming musicians. It's a joy to see another world open up to them through music.
Through my warm and positive personality and experience as a certified music teacher and music performer, I understand how to meet the social and educational needs of each music student. I am well versed at solving problems and helping students thrive and reach their full potential. I think that I do this best by personalizing the instruction experience for each unique situation. I love to encourage students and help them discover the music in them.

*** Lesson Details ***
Like me, students can expect to enjoy the process. Students will discover that I am very encouraging during lessons. I keep everything upbeat and positive. I will help you come up with goals musically. I am very patient, all while coaching you so that you get positive results.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright Baldwin piano, electronic keyboard 88 keys, music stands, sitting area for parent, CD/iPod stereo.

Saxophone

About Me

My Schedule varies week to week. If you would like to take lessons with me but my current listed availability is not suited to your schedule- please contact me for more lesson times.

Jazz and blues have been an integral part of my life since I was a child. I began playing music when I was five years old, starting with the violin. I have played many instruments, but the saxophone has become my passion. I have been playing saxophone for 18 years, performing professionally both in the Atlanta and Seattle areas.

One of the greatest joys in my musical journey has been to share my musical insights with students. I strive to find each students' creativity and help them cultivate that. I believe that every student has the ability to create beautiful music regardless of experience. I tailor my lessons to each individual student to assist them in reaching their goals- whether that is to perform classical, jazz, blues, Brazilian, etc., to become first chair, to prepare for college and scholarship auditions, or simply to play just for fun.

I studied jazz performance at Agnes Scott College where I received a music scholarship. I also hold a BA in psychology from the University of Washington.

*** Lesson Details ***
One of my main philosophies is that performing music well consists of 2% talent and 97% hard work and practice.

I will guide students in learning smart and efficient practicing techniques that will ensure improvement.

Students can expect that they will learn how to play with great tone and technical ability.

I go at the pace of the student. If a student has specific goals, a college audition for example, then I will push that student harder than a student who is just beginning or is learning to play for fun.

When a student is ready I will teach them music theory and improvisational skills, as well as performance and soloing etiquette.

I believe the best way to learn music is in a comfortable, fun and encouraging environment, and I implement these beliefs in all of my lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I will have metronome and tuners on hand, practice materials, music stands, and piano. Students should bring their instruments, reeds, and any practice materials they have been working on.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will have metronome and tuners on hand, as well as practice materials. Students should have at least one stand for themselves.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz and improvisation. Brazilian jazz, blues, funk, straight ahead jazz, beebop, cool jazz, etc. I have also been classically trained. I focus on technique and achieving the desired tone and sound from your instrument.
