You will find that I am a very well rounded musician with countless performances and musical experience from singing Beethoven's 9th symphony with the Delaware Symphony Orchestra to touring with a serious Christian Rock band that plays both secular rock clubs and churches throughout the east coast. I have recorded a cd at Indre Studios in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania along with the final mastering at Bradford Sounds. ("Down to One" is the name of the band)
I truly feel that music is a gift from God. Music can touch the lives of so many people in many ways. I have used music to serve the Lord and will for the rest of my earthly life. I am a worship Pastor with 20 + years experience leading a choir and a praise band.
I teach with a coaching style acting as a motivator of the joy of music. I genuinely love music and can't get enough of it. No longer is it the old school way about a grumpy unhappy time sitting down to practice so that your teacher doesn't get upset. I encourage students joyfully and use positive reinforcement to obtain the same result.
The turnover rate is very low. It is rare that a student doesn't stick with me for more than 1 or 2 years. Many younger students have been with me for 4 or more years.

- Teaching since:
I have been a worship and Care pastor full time for the past 6 years. I have been a worship pastor for over 20 years. I have a wide variety of abilities and skills to teach many different instruments. Because of this and because I've LED choir and worship teams for many years I have tons of experience to offer you. Many students have started on a certain instrument and then later tried something else. Of course they stayed with me because I teach many instruments.
