I graduated from Matc with a degree in Music occupation, studied at the Milwaukee Conservatory of Music and have taken private lessons for 10 years
As a professional gigging musician and a past music graduate, I understand the importance of life experience and class room security. I value and truly find passion in teaching our next generation of musicians, by finding and reinforcing each students strengths, while motivating them to grow and challenge themselves, thus overcoming their weaknesses on their own. I understand each student has different skills, but every student has room to grow. It is my job to give them the tools and direction they need to prosper, while keeping them motivated and positive to move forward in the enjoyable experience.
*** Lesson Details ***
At the first lesson I will provide a very detailed and well thought out syllabus that will act as a ruff outline for the direction I hope to bring the student and what I can offer them. Since each student is different, the syllabus will only be a guide, and will be subject to change, however, this will help keep a focused direction with short term goals to keep both the student focused, and myself, intent on what is being taught. Keeping us moving forward. My lessons start from the basics and consist of both handouts and book work, which go hand in hand from week to week. The book I work from is for beginners to advanced and will teach the student to become fluent in reading sheet music, and the handout I use, I have either made myself or obtained from past collage classes and teachers I myself have learned from. The student will be given an assignment each week and each week I will give them the tools and knowledge to completed the task.

Lessons in finished carpet basement with 2 chairs, music stand and practice amps, drum set, and keyboard.
*** Travel Equipment ***
