About Me

I've been teaching in the Louisville area for nearly six years and have worked with over 100 clients for over 5,000 lessons. I've worked with students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Whether you're looking to learn to play an instrument you've always wanted to play, learn how to play some of your favorite songs, or just want to learn for fun, I'm here to help you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching all ages and abilities, from 5-year-old beginners to advanced students who'd like fine tuning. I'm relaxed and laid back while encouraging you to reach your potential. Whether you're an absolute beginner or a seasoned expert in need of some fine tuning, I'll carefully evaluate your strengths and weakness and create a lesson plan suited to your individual learning style, interests and needs. We'll discuss where you'd like to go with music, and I'll help you get there! After 3 or 6 months with me, you'll learn the musical foundations of rhythm, ear training, posture, technique, music theory and performance, and maybe a few of your favorite songs!

About Me

Much emphasis is given to improving typical problems that most singers have; to include but not limited to posture, proper breathing, tonal quality (in all ranges), technique; such as diction for singing. Work on developing upper register is employed, as well as a solid tonal quality in mid and lower ranges. Vocal exercises will be tailored for each individual. Most of the pedagogical training will be from the Bel Canto (Italian school, translated: Beautiful Singing)
school of music. However other schools of singing may also be employed, such as the German, French, and English schools. It all depends on what type of voice we are dealing with. Many types of voices exist, for example. Bass, Baritone, Tenor, Alto, Soprano, and
within each voice range there are different types of voices. For example: the tenor voice (which is the most difficult voice to master), can be of a leggiero quality; which is one of the lighter
sounding of the tenor voices. The most popular tenor voice is of a lyric quality. Luccino Pavarotti was a lyric tenor. The lyric tenor voice is the most common tenor voice. The agility of the leggiero and lyric voice is much quicker than that of the Dramatic tenor. Next is the spinto vocal quality. It is the type of voice which still has much agility like the lyric voice type, but loudness which is more related to the dramatic tenor (the most powerful tenor voice).

There is so very much to consider when training even the newest singer. I employ methods from leading pedagogy teachers; such as Richard Miller, Manuel Garcia, and Barbara Dosher to mention a few. Vocal science is also employed. I don’t usually tell the student every little technique that is being employed because it can sometimes be more of a distraction than benefit. My pedagogical background is an extensive one.

That being said, even teacher’s that understand the above mentioned material may not possess the ability to spot and treat problems. So many things need to be considered; even with head
position, musculature being used when producing different sounds in different ranges.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very happy, upbeat teacher. I encourage with very positive methods. Learning and improving ones voice can be so much fun. Give it a try. You have nothing to loose and only a very much improved quality of voice to gain.

*** Specialties ***
Improving vocal production by eliminating problems that most singers have; to include but not limited to posture, proper breathing, tonal quality (in all ranges). Technique; such as diction for singing is employed. Teaching methods include but are not limited to Bel Canto (Italian school, translated: Beautiful Singing) school of music, German, French, and English
schools. Methods used depend on what type of voice each student has. Belting is not encouraged and should be very limited with the female voice.

Subjects Taught

Acting, Bass Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Percussion, Piano, Singing, Songwriting, Speaking Voice

About Me

I started playing piano when I was 8. I started writing compositions around 9. Since I was singing in the choir, I began to fuse piano and singing, until I wrote my first song with words when I was twelve. Along the way I learned guitar, bass, drums, and various forms of composition and recording techniques. I toured with my band The Navigators for several years and I have had compositions of mine in TV shows like "The Unit" and in the documentary "Dreamriders" as well as various independent films. Along the way I have taught every age group from six months of age up to adult.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm not a big fan of the "one-size fits all" teaching method. I prefer the "snowflake" approach- every student is different. Some just want to learn to play guitar to play their girlfriend a few songs- others want to dedicate their lives to being a musician. I can help them both, but I'll go about it differently. What a student accomplishes is determined by their motivation, discipline and passion. My job is to amplify their motivation, refine their discipline and direct their passion. I like to think of myself as a sherpa- the student has to climb the mountain themselves, but I'll be there to help guide them along the path.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Electric 88 weighted keys; guitars (electric & acoustic); cables/amp; I also have recording gear for students interested in making recordings of their performances.

*** Specialties ***
I have extensive experience in the pop field. Genres include folk, pop, rock. I have composed music for film and television, so I am strongest in composition. I have taught other subjects in every age range from 6 months to 18 years of age.
