Guitar, Classical Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory
When I first heard my dad play "Blackbird," I was hooked. I borrowed my little brother's guitar and started teaching myself from some old Hal Leonard books. There was something so exhilarating about making a piece of wood produce beautiful sounds. Soon I was taking lessons on electric guitar, playing Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. My teacher at the time pushed me toward classical guitar and I starting attending evening classes at the local community college when I was in high school. I fell in love with making music and decided to make it my career. I earned my Bachelor's of Music from Arizona State University, studying under Frank Koonce. During my first few years there, I focused on technique and commissioning new works for the guitar, while exploring the vast repertoire of music available.
The summer before my senior year, Frank asked me take a look at an edition he was doing for Mel Bay and asked if I would like to help him with it. It was all sixteenth century vihuela and lute music. I spent the summer learning to read old tablature systems and even bought t a cheap lute. Lute music had me entranced and I decided I had to learn to play the instrument. I cut my nails off, and started practicing lute for 6 hours a day, in the hopes of auditioning for a Master's program at one of the few schools that offer them. Luckily, I passed my audition and was admitted into the Eastman School of Music, where I earned my Early Music MM and DMA studying under Paul O'Dette.
Though early music is my focus, I am constantly exploring new musical avenues. I've performed in folk duos, improvisation bands, and composed new works for lute and guitar. I've also coached singers, string players, wind players, and co-directed a staged opera. My goal is to use my diverse musical background to help my students in every way possible.
Guitar, Piano, Clarinet, Classical Guitar, Flute, Music Theory, Oboe, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone
I have a master's degree in musical education. My main instrument is guitar, and I have played in rock groups, studied classical guitar with a student of Pepe Romero, and am a solid blues player. Receiving my NYS teaching certificate has allowed me to teach band and lessons in public and private schools for the last twelve years. I have taught most band instruments in these settings, as well as a beginning guitar class and a guitar ensemble. In my younger years, and while in college studying music, I have developed great piano skills as well.
Guitar, Piano, Classical Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting
I hold bachelor and masters degrees in composition and have taught at the college level since 1995. As a piano teacher, I teach students of all ages. As a performing pianist, my role is usually to play music for wedding ceremonies and receptions.
While I do not have credentials as a guitarist per se, from ages 13 to 21, I was a serious student of the instrument and had many performances as a classical guitarist, as soloist and ensemble performer.
I prefer to teach composition/songwriting, but will gladly teach music theory, piano, or guitar.
I try to make lessons productive and fun, especially for students who have no design on a professional career, but are prompted to learn by their love of music. For students who may want to attend college and potentially have a professional life in music, we still have fun, but we might be slightly more focused on the productivity side of the equation.
If someone were to ask why students should take lessons with me, I would say that I have not only the academic credentials, but 20 years teaching experience, as well performing/composing experience in a professional capacity outside the walls of academia. - I have received and fulfilled commissions for my work.
Thank you in advance for your interest.
