Overview

I am a recent graduate of Morgan State University receiving a Masters degree. I majored in music education with trumpet as my primary instrument. I currently teach Band, Orchestra and General Music at Reid Temple Christian Academy. I have been teaching for 13 years, section leader of multiple bands for 5 yrs. I am a musical arranger, who understands all levels of students and genuinely loves to teach. Very inviting and understanding, as well as easy to talk to. Trustworthy and honest, performed in numerous groups including jazz and classical.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher, very encouraging and and always upbeat. Students can expect to have fun, and never feel nervous. Not like an English or History class. The learning happens on both sides. I focus on making the instrument a voice, just like the one we use when we talk. After 3 or 6 months, the student can expect a much better understanding of the instrument.

Robert teaches my 7 year old daughter, who generally is shy and not very trusting of new people. She was open and communicative with him within the first 15 minutes of the first lesson. He is able to teach at level and pace that best suits her. He gave her a journal with instructions to practice in between their sessions. My daughter likes that he checks it and gives her a star for completing the task. He also shows up to our home on time, which is very important to me. My husband and I could not be more please!
