At an early age, I was exposed to a variety of music including Motown, Rhythm & Blues, Rock & Roll, Hip-Hop, Latin, and the Blues. The early influences of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Otis Redding, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, and Howlin’ Wolf, kept me singing.

I have a natural ear for music since I was a child. My sight reading improved when I attended Shaw University. I improved on the trombone and trumpet in college. My Music Theory developed with learning and playing the piano. Basically I provide a lesson plan based on Individual student's needs. For example if a student has a problem with the tonation of their sound. Then I would provide a step by step process on developing a better sound. I am a teacher who teaches so that the student can understand and learn. If the student does not learn then that doesn't make me a teacher. My students success is a reflection of me. *** Lesson Details *** Teach on students needs strength and weakness.
My teaching style combines classical technique, jazz and international traditions, and real world modern approach and application. I integrate these elements into a fun and involving class which inspires students of all ages to pursue their maximum potential.
