Hello and thank you for the opportunity to serve.
There is no greater blessing than to use the gifts you've been given to directly benefit others! If you love what you do you will never work a day in your life!
Be certain, making music is unlike anything else you've done. At the same time, making music will strengthen everything else you WILL do!
Whether you choose me to help to you along the way or another teacher, please be sure to get a teacher that is patient, experienced and disciplined. Your first year of music lessons will either create a strong foundation or collapse under the partially built structure. Give the teacher a chance to make their point. Don't be too quick to judge based on the inexperience of the student. The fundamental lessons must be repeated until learned.
Whatever you do, get a teacher. Do not waste time believing you can 'self teach'. Your technique needs to be monitored by someone who knows music.
I've learned a great deal in my 20 years of teaching;
- keep it fun
- change it up
- don't compromise the fundamentals
- encourage musical discipline
- tuning, warm-up, scales, technique, repertoire, new material
It's my belief that music fundamentals are critical and we will create a solid musical foundation by learning the language, understanding the critical issues of timing, rhythm, reading and learning how to LEARN!
I enjoy working with all ages but specialize in children and adults that act like children!
Stay a child! Learn something new.
What are you waiting for?!
