I have been studying music for eight years now. Having come to music rather later in life than most, I find that I am more empathetic to the perspective of the beginning student than many teachers. I spent the Summer of 2009 teaching music fundamentals to groups of severely physically and mentally disabled children of all ages. Since then I've completed my Bachelors degree in Music, and have taught privately to several students.
To me, music is above all about transformation; yes, beautiful sound transforms our experience of the environment, but learning an instrument transforms the very way a student learns. Learning to play an instrument is an experience of training one’s nervous system to gradually act and respond in new ways, and that kind of persistent, focused, training is applicable to anything.
I also believe that playing music should be fun and cathartic.
*** Lesson Details ***
I plan my lessons around getting students to enjoy playing music as soon as possible, whether that means learning how to strum a chord rhythmically, their favorite song, or how to take a blues solo. There are steps that have to be climbed to do more complex things and I encourage to put in at least ten minutes every day practicing, but depending on a student's skill level and goals, developing a love of music and steady practice habits can be more beneficial over the long term than suggesting a student practice until their limit.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room with upright piano, guitars, amps, and music stand. Street parking available, and parents can sit in on lessons with waiting area available as well.
*** Travel Equipment ***
If the students travel to me, I will provide amplification, a cable, a guitar (for the first lesson) and a microphone.
*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Folk, Blues, Rock, Hip-hop, Funk.
