About Me

With almost 10 years of secondary teaching experience, both in a charter and public school setting, I am confident in my ability to become an asset to your student's individual educational needs!

A graduate of Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa (2003), I graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education with emphasis in both vocal performance and flute. I am incredibly active in several music professional organizations including FBA, FMEA/FSMA, MENC, IBA, and IAAE, as well as being an alum of Mu Phi Epsilon, a National Honorary Music Fraternity.

I was honored to be nominated each year while teaching at Ainger for the Charlotte County Teacher of the Year and was selected as the 2004 Wal-Mart Teacher of the Year for Charlotte County. This honor comes from student nominations that are sent in and was awarded $1000 to purchase supplies for my program.

Professionally, I have served as the Florida Bandmasters Association District 16 Secretary (Middle School), as well as the District 15 Secretary and later Chairperson in addition to being a member of the the the FBA State Executive Board and Broward Music Educators Association. (BMEA) Executive Board. I was also the Guest Conductor for the 2008 Superintendent's Middle School Honor Chorus in Miami-Dade and am currently interning as a State Adjudicator in both Jazz and Solo and Ensemble as well as my work with various area schools as a guest clinician.

I have performed with the Des Moines Metro Opera, Ingersoll Children's and Dinner Theatres, Drama Workshop, Des Moines Playhouse, Oster Regent Theatre and was selected by the Donna Reed Foundation in 1998 as the Top Iowa Vocalist.

I studied flute with Ms. Karrie Tate and voice with Dr. Les Hale, Dr. Robert L. Larsen, Dr. Maria DiPalma and Ms. Jacqueline Thompson.

I believe that every student, regardless of ability or age, can grow musically. My purpose is to enrich and challenge students by helping them discover the special meaning that exists only in creating, re-creating, and experiencing music. In this way, I hope to inspire and motivate your child to achieve their fullest potential in music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am here to provide students a comprehensive, balanced education in instrumental and vocal music. Through the study of music, students develop intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially. Intellectual growth is enhanced through the student's ever-increasing knowledge of musical concepts; its unique notation system, terminology, styles, historical eras, and historical figures. Physically, students must adapt to the many challenges of learning an instrument and transforming symbols into sound. Students also develop a sense of leadership through learning to work side-by-side with others in a group setting. Perhaps the most unique and essential element making music education so special, however, is that it provides students the opportunity to develop aesthetically. Aesthetic education helps a student develop his/her own natural responsiveness to the power of music. Through studying, creating and experiencing quality music, the student becomes more attuned to his/her individual expressiveness. Simply put, music educates the whole child-mind, body and heart.

I believe there is no more powerful a way for my students to explore and understand what it means to be human in all its many facets than through the creation and experience of music. My personal goal as a music educator is always to increase my students abilities to perceive, experience, and react to the expressive qualities of music by providing students personally fulfilling and meaningful opportunities for musical experiences.

About Me

It'€™s hard to objectively assess your sound when your instrument is part of your body. Think about the difference between how you think you sound and what you hear when you listen to a recording of your voice. Your first instinct is to say that the recording is distorting your voice, right? That's why you need a voice coach with a trained ear and proven techniques to guide and teach you as you develop your polished and professional sound. I teach professionals and beginners from age 10 and up.
I think my artistic knowledge, skills and background are the foundation for voice instruction for beginners and professionals alike. The goal is to have you benefit from my years of training and experience. I am the product of many excellent teachers, coaches, stage directors and conductors. And, I have taught privately and in master classes for over many years.
There are many basics skills which each singer must master in order to sing healthily, happily and beautifully, but each person has his or her own learning needs and style.

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Cello, Clarinet, Classical Guitar, French Horn, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Saxophone, Trumpet, Violin

About Me

Professional guitarist/vocalist since 1976. Performed in Rock bands, Show Bands, Calypso bands, Jazz bands, and, yes, Wedding Bands. I have performed as a solo guitarist for wedding ceremonies, art shows, and other private functions. I have also performed on the trumpet and saxophone in bands, and on the violin and cello for wedding ceremonies.
Private guitar and bass instructor since 1984; Orchestral strings instructor since 1988.
My students benefit from my professional experience in that they focus directly on what is necessary as a performer and don't waste time on strictly theoretical exercises.

*** Lesson Details ***
When students take lessons from me I take some time to get to know their reasons for wanting to play the instrument and who their favorite artists/bands are. That way I can gear the lessons towards their interests which keeps them motivated and helps them relate what they're learning to "real-world" music.
I try to make the learning of music and technique as much fun as possible using challenges and games.
I base my lessons on a research based curriculum called "Jump right In" where students will eventually learn to "hear" the music they are reading the same way one hears the words they are reading in a book. Then, based on their age and interests, I use whatever instrumental technique books I feel are best suited for that particular individual.
After 3-6 months guitar students should be able to read and play basic chord progressions and simple single note melodies both by ear and by using standard music notation. This will mostly be in first position.
Similarly, Bass students should be able to read and play bass lines that fit basic chord progressions, and be able to play simple single note melodies in first position.
String students should have basic control of the bow and be able to read and play simple melodies by ear and by using standard music notation on at least 3 strings in first position.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide an amplifier, sound system, chairs, music stands, Keyboard with rhythm section, and a computer with a vast selection of music for listening and performing.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide supplemental materials, my own guitar and music stand and an Mp3 recorder to record lessons.
I expect students to purchase a method book, their own instrument, a music stand and a tuner.

*** Specialties ***
I am familiar with most band and string methods as well as the Gordon/Grunow "Jump Right In" method.
I perform in all styles from Classical to Calypso and everything in between.

About Me

D. is a multi-instrumentalist composer. His sound is a combination of the sweeping melodies of Debussy, the introspection of Coldplay, and the organic experimentation of Balmorhea. At its core, his music tells a story. Like a good movie, the music flows up and down, twists and turns in the middle, and when the journey is over, it will leave an imprint on your heart.

D. has performed in a variety of venues throughout Florida. Most notable are the Social and Lyrica in Orlando and the Colony Theatre on South Beach. Before This Moment is his debut album released in 2013. It contains an eclectic mix of music with some tracks that date back to 2003. He is also an active commercial and film composer. He has won six Gold Addy Awards for commercials that he co-composed with John Jay Martyn from Audacity Recording Studios.
