About Me

My love of music and musical talent was discovered when I was just five years old. An uncle gave me a plastic recorder and, without lessons or help from anyone, I was playing melodies within days. Soon after I started taking private lessons on Saxophone and Clarinet.
I played my first paying job at age 14.
When I was 15, my private instructor, asked me if I would be interested in teaching. He put me on the County list of private instructors and and soon I had my own thriving studio of Sax and Clarinet students. From that time on, I have almost continuously been involved in music education.
Though I had listened to the rock "guitar gods" of the 60's I never became interested the guitar until, at the age of 15, I first heard Maestro Andres Segovia through his televised master classes. About the same time, I was amazed by the chord melody genius of jazz artists like George Van Eps, Joe Pass, and Bucky Pizzarelli. It was then I realized that the guitar could be an "orchestra."
In the small town where I grew up, there were no guitar teachers so I studied with outstanding Guitarist Ed McGuire. Later, I studied formally with several renowned professors of guitar, including Bruce Holzman at FSU and Randy Reed, a professor at Duke University in Durham North Carolina.
I have also performed in Master Classes for Classical Guitarists Atigoni Goni and Dimitri Diatchenko.
Before making North Florida my home, I toured and played throughout the Northeast, Midwest and Southeast in a variety of venues and styles from Rock to Jazz to R&B.
Even after settling down I have stayed active in the music business, playing and teaching. I continue to work regularly performing solo, or in ensembles throughout Florida from Tallahassee to Jacksonville.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who prefers to motivate my students by instilling my love of, and enthusiasm for, music in them rather than using any kind of "scare" tactics. I had a very few "knuckle rapper" style teachers over the years and found them to be very unmotivating.
A large percentage of the progress a student makes happens between the lessons. The more they practice, the faster they improve.
I also believe in building a solid foundation that my students can build upon. A good teacher teaches a student how to teach themselves.
On guitar, I encourage, but don't insist on, my students learning to read music. Some styles of guitar do not require it, but I do mention the gigs I have gotten over the years because I could read.
On all instruments, I am a big believer in great technique, musicianship and improvisational skills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio is in back of the house as an addition. It has its own separate entrance and is approx 160 sq feet. Well lit and with heat and air.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide a music stand if needed. Students must have their own instrument. They will need to get their own books, though I do provide much supplemental material.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Classical, Blues, Flamenco

About Me

I teach at a pace that the student learns while challenging them. I graduated Cum Laude from The Baptist College of Florida with my Bachelor's in Music Education. I graduated with Honors from Polk Community College.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can be strict but mostly laid back. I use the Essential Elements 2000 for Strings curriculum with a mix of Suzuki Method. After 3-6 months you will have learned the parts of the instrument, note names, a few scales and bow technique. I start by teaching the instrument and note names and fingerings to them then pitches and bowing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I will provide a stand to use and keyboard to hear pitches.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect them to have the books, stand, instrument, rosin, stand for home practice and tuner/metronome.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki, Essential Elements

About Me

I started piano lessons at five years old. My dad was my first teacher. During middle school and high school I continued with other teachers. Music became very important during my years at college, consequently, at the University of Minnesota I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education; in graduate school I earned a Master of Science in Music Education at the University of Illinois and finally, I earned a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership at the University of Miami.

*** Lesson Details ***
I establish a good rapport with my students in order for the class to be enjoyable. It is very important to emphasize hand position and posture with beginners. New lessons are assigned each week. There are lessons that build technique and others that are based on familiar songs or easy songs for beginners.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are taught on an electronic keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
My specialty is teaching beginners and organizing piano recitals as a means of building confidence and enthusiasm.
