About Me

My Background in Music:

My inspiration first started when I was seven years old and in second grade. I was pondering if I wanted to dedicate myself to the music field. A substitute piano teacher came in that day and played and my admiration decided me to pursue this ambition for my life work.

I studied and played guitar and auto-harp as a child because of our lack of piano. The guitar was a gift and I played it for years and studied vocal music throughout school.

When I was a young teenager I started playing with a group that I met in a barn and I was thrilled. Many other musicians have been part of my story and as a young person I studied privately with such greats as Michelle Barone Horsefield as well as with with studio musicians such as the Scott Steeleman Studio and John Sayer.

Education:

When I was a little older I started studying at the Community Music School at Capital University in Columbus Ohio. I studied with Joan Hall Huet and enjoyed her style and training as well as Steve Caricciola out of Capitol who played organ and taught me composition. Those are only two of the wonderful teachers with whom I trained.

As I was studying, there came an opportunity for me to study and work with the founding member of the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. He was Mr. Robert Buchsbaum of Coronet Recording Studio. I came into his studio to make a demo tape and he offered me a job.

He was a fantastic engineer as well as the finest of oboists. We talked music for nine years together. He changed my life in so many countless ways that it would take a book to explain what was brought to me musically at that time.

I continued to play as well as help in the studio wherever and whenever I was needed. I recorded and wrote many original pieces and became copyrighted as well as a member of BMI and ASCAP.

I won the USO talent show in 1985 and was offered the possibility of travel, but I chose to stay in Columbus. I was very blessed to have met and worked with many of the finest professors in the country as they were a part of our Artist-In-Residence Series in the studio.

People such as Rosemary Platt, a professor of Ohio State University, Paul Droste, TBDBITL and retired OSU marching band director. I came to Florida in 2001 and have expanded my musical adventures. I continue to play musically with a few local musicians and write music. I plan to continue to be an active force in the music field as well as teach other people how to be fine musicians.

Credits:

I have been involved within the music industry for many years. My credits include working almost ten years in a classical recording studio of high reputation. I have trained with many fine teachers and have grown to love the music field more and more. My goal is to expand your knowledge into a lifetime love for the music field and not to frustrate you with seemingly impossible tasks.

Children and Adults:

I love children and have worked many years with all age groups as well as with adults. I have the patience and good disposition necessary to help you enjoy the musical experience.

The methods that I use while on a steady course with an accredited system will also include learning how to enjoy music, write music and read music. I have people who are devoted to music and who will have it in their lives always because of my guidance.

A Personal Note

My skills include many years of teaching and helping students become stronger and better equipped to face the best future that they can possibly reach. I have devoted my life to teaching people to read, study, write and perform well.

I have researched the many students that I have trained and I have developed quick and efficient ways to reach needed goals. I have tutored children in reading, writing and comprehension skills as well as contest preparation and test taking.

I have also been involved in many public speaking and performance opportunities. When I was a young child I had the privilege of training in phonics and in eighth grade was reading at a college level.

When my family moved to another community while I was in the ninth grade I was placed in twelfth grade classes and while I did not have the emotional maturity I did have the intellectual ability. I have been concentrating on teaching music for the last few years and have also addressed a need in raising the skill levels in other subjects.

I have also spent time teaching children to prepare for tests. That led me into training others how to develop study skills to help them in lifelong pursuits. I am a writer and love to use stories with a good solid moral point.

I have devoted myself to helping children and young people as well as adults and have many references and connections to my community. I have been published in syndicated newspapers and I am currently a member of the American College of Musicians.

I have been listed in various Who's Who Publications such as Who's Who for Entrepreneurs and have even been listed in European publications. I believe that I have changed lives for the better and this gives me a strong drive and purpose to equip and strengthen others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach online with much success. You can stay in the comfort of your own home and I can teach your student as if I am right there. Give online a try and see if your student continues to grow musically.

My usual goal in a lesson is to promote thought and a natural interest in personal development.

1. I require that the students have the materials needed to get the best possible results I can suggest which ones are the best for the student. Materials are usually of minimal cost unless a student wants to do very serious training.

2. The first few minutes we go over their homework and decide if they need another week or if they are ready to move on. Most of the students can move on so I am going to give that scenario.

3. I then present a concept that will usually take some practice to master.

4. The last section is spent in going over what will be done in their own time.

I'll do my best to make sure that the student understands everything that is being presented to the best of their capacity.

Practice time is age appropriate and I am sensitive to the time constraints that are part of our society today.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha keyboard, bel canto vocal set up, computer, Luna acoustic guitar, classical guitar, lesson books.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a guitar but students need their own instrument and will need books.

*** Specialties ***
I use touch therapy and associations as well as help people overcome stage fright. I also use Bel Canto in vocal training. In guitar I can teach up to early advanced. On piano and vocal I can take children 7 and up male or female. I use positive reinforcement. I have innovative programs that stimulate and rejuvenate.

Subjects Taught

Audition Prep, Cello, Ear Training, Fiddle, Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piccolo, Viola, Violin

About Me

Have you always wanted to learn how to play an instrument, but never knew where to begin? I can help you learn your instrument, and learn how to play the music that you love whether it be flute, piccolo, violin, viola, or cello. I can help you enjoy music.

Having grown up in a musical family with my mother a professional violinist, I have been exposed to the joys of music since childhood. I learned how to play percussion and string instruments from when I was six years old, and later joined the high school band playing flute. I loved playing flute and piccolo so much that I decided to take this as my career and went to Interlochen Arts Academy where I excellent in my performance. I later went to Prague Conservatory and Czech Budweiss Conservatory and played with the Prague Film Orchestra. Even more recently I have been a teacher for the Flutes and Strings classes at Unison World School in Dehradun, India.

As you can see, having great international exposure to music I can teach you how to become more well-rounded in the beauty that is music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My approach to teaching varies with the age level of each student. With younger students, imitation is often one of the best methods of learning and I prefer the Suzuki method for students up to age 8, especially with strings. For older children and adults, learning music notation and basic music theory for a full understanding of musical language are more important to get them to the level where they can learn any music that they want to play for fun. For students who wish to excel in their school band, a more practical approach with technique specific warm-ups and exercises seems to be the best in general.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the living room which includes music stands, sheet music, metronome, and seating for parents/students. No pets. Parking in lot.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide metronome, and tools for minor instrument repair. Students should provide their own music stands and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki method, Taffanel et Gaubert, Patricia George

I currently serve as the Bonita L. Bass Memorial Assistant Conductor to the Master Chorale of Tampa Bay (through the Chorale's Graduate Assistantship program with the University of South Florida). At USF, I also assist in rehearsing and preparing the University choirs for performances throughout the year. I am also the founder Cincinnati based vocal ensemble, ascend.

Previously, I was the Director of Music at Mt. Washington Presbyterian Church in Cincinnati, OH. At Mt.

I helped lead the adult choirs and orchestra in performances of Haydn's Nelsonmesse, Rutter's Requiem, Faure's Requiem, Bach's Christ Lag in Todesbanden, and Handel‚¬Ä¬ôs Messiah-Part the First. I also led Sacre Voci in performances of Britten‚¬Ä¬ôs Rejoice in the Lamb and Vasks‚¬Ä¬ô Dona Nobis Pacem. In 2010, the MWPC Chancel Choir was invited and sang in Carnegie Hall, New York, NY under the direction of Dr. Earl Rivers.

Before Mt. Washington I taught in the public schools, teaching vocal music to students from the elementary school level through high school.

At the Symposium, I rehearsed and performed with those two ensembles and participated in classes with director Noel Edison.

The masterclass was led by Dr. Anton Armstrong of St. Olaf College and John Alexander of the Pacific Chorale. I directed the United States Air Force Singing Sergeants.
