- Teaches students:
- Ages 7+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I am a student at Old dominion university and am currently double majoring in Music Education and Music Composition. I have an amazing passion for both performance and composition. I have been teaching younger kids since 2015 and plan to teach music in a school upon graduation. I am very comfortable working with younger kids, but I also enjoy teaching older students as well. I teach both classical and jazz styles of saxophone performance.
My approach to lessons is that the student learns best when they love the subject as much as I do. I make lessons both fun and productive by teaching the style of music the student is most interested, while also doing fun activities such as duets. My students can expect great progress in all elements of performance, while also learning a little music theory on the side.
I have performed in many ensembles including the ODU wind ensemble, jazz orchestra, and saxophone quartet. I also have composed many of my own original compositions, which have been performed by the ODU saxophone quartet. I also plan to compete in the annual young artist's competition in fall 2018.
I prefer to teach at the students house, and I am very flexible with my schedule.
