About Me

B I O G R A P H Y

I was born and raised in London England, where I first discovered my love of music. Growing up I studied classical piano for 10 years, and was educated through the Royal Associated Board and Trinity College.

Moving to the states, I carried my musical passion and took further instruction in voice, guitar, saxophone, and violin. I graduated in 2011 from a pioneering local music school and have maintained a home teaching studio for several years. I have experience working with students from all ages and musical backgrounds, primarily working on improvisation, theory and composition.

L E S S O N D E T A I L S

Charlie believes that learning an instrument should primarily be an exciting and gratifying endeavor, although this does not negate the fact that diligent practice will directly lead to excellence and growth. With every student, the goal is for an enjoyable and fulfilling learning experience, meeting and surpassing potential. Whether students aim to brush up on technical skills or start from page one, lessons will be tailor made for each individual to realize as much measurable growth as possible. Classical lessons are generally taught out of the Alfred's method, but are adaptable to each students desires and needs. Students will grow in skills such as note reading, improvisation, composition and music theory.

I look forward to helping you meet whatever musical goal you may have and am excited to see growth, development and creativity.

T R A V E L E Q U I P M E N T

Students are expected to provide books for note taking along with music textbooks. Students should also have access to a piano/keyboard/guitar for regular practice.

When you have warmed up your voice with vocal exercises, we will work together on the music you wish to learn. It could be a song, an aria, a Broadway or Opera aria, or a religious piece.

About Me

I was 3 years old when I started playing the Violin. Since then, I have played a number of different instruments such as the Piano, Organ, Clarinet, Accordion, and Banjo. When I was 6 I started writing music. Since then it has always been my desire to be a conductor and song writer. I attended a private University (Evangel University in Springfield Missouri) and received my B.A. in Music with a Minor in Musical Composition. While at Evangel, I had the wonderful opportunity to enhance my musicianship through academia and professional experience. As such, I became extremely proficient musical theory and performance. I have also received a B.S. in Kinesiology and the Physical Sciences, which has helped me to realize how important music is in my life today. Music is more than just notes, and all my life experiences up to this point have certainly affirmed such a statement.

*** Lesson Details ***
Well, one of my sayings is €œMusic should be fun!€ And this is certainly true! I like to have fun with my students and I enjoy my students when they are having fun. The excitement that a student has when playing their favorite pop artist, is the same excitement I bring to my lessons. I not only teach my students the €œProper/Common€ things of music, but I also teach my students how to be €œfree€ and learn €œuncommon€ repertoire. I can be laid back at times. I realize that there is a time to focus and a time to play. After awhile, my students will understand how important and prolific music is in their personal life; they will learn to find the joys of music in the world around them. They will not only enjoy the music they listen to, but they will understand it as well. For your convenience, I am now offering online lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room setup for lesson with upright piano. Parking available. Parents can sit in on lessons, and waiting area available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student should provide a suitable learning instrument for their mode of interest. Example: clarinet for clarinet lessons, etc. Student is responsible for lesson books.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Classical, Pop, Rock. I also tutor Health Sciences, and Human Biology courses.

About Me

I love teaching students that love music of absolutely any age! Some of my favorite students are senior citizens starting a new hobby. No matter what the age, I love to see my students faces light up when they realize that they can play music that they love so easily. I can't count the amount of times that my students have told me, "I should have started doing this a long time ago."
