I have been a public school music teacher for 30+ years. I am an optimistic, enthusiastic person, who will help you learn music reading in addition to music playing. I started on piano as a young child, and studied clarinet from elementary school through college, where I focused on french horn. I have a BA in Music Education from Humboldt State University, where I also earned my teaching credential. I have taught beginning, intermediate and advanced band and orchestra, in addition to choir and jazz band. I have been music director for over 10 middle school musicals. In my spare time I enjoy my two dogs, going horseback riding, and reading. *** Lesson Details *** I am very friendly, and encouraging to new students. I have a lot of patience for those who are new to the study of music. I can also be more demanding for those who have learned the basics and want to improve their playing. I am a proponent of teaching the basics of music reading and common musical terms. I can teach music through a variety of curricula, and will work with my students to choose a method that best suits their goals. I have a large music studio in my home that has a separate entrance,which is conducive to music making (with it's own bathroom). I accept students 8 years of age and older. *** Studio Equipment *** Has a keyboard, but no drum set *** Travel Equipment *** I prefer to teach in my home studio. *** Specialties *** I have been teaching band, orchestra & choir in public schools for 30+ years.

Award-Winning Teacher - Networked/played with various members of Heart & Bad Company & Former Queensryche. Learn Your Favorite Songs Quickly & Accurately. 2020 Update - I'm Pacific NW Guitarist for Rudy Parris from "NBC TV's The Voice!" Go Team Blake - Teaching Percussion Is My Specialty.. Been Playing & Performing For 35 years now! Beginning to Intermediate Percussion lessons and beats that are actually used in today's and yesteryear's "hit songs". It's no secret, percussion is the backbone or "foundation" to any hit song. I break down percussion to its most basic rudiments so that you will grow by leaps and bounds instead of just crawling along. You have to walk before you can run so getting it right initially is very important to moving forward and getting you playing your favorite songs quickly and accurately..
