I have been teaching students of all ages for 17 years. My principle instrument is Trumpet, but I teach multiple instruments. I received my BS in music from Radford University in 2000. I moved to Miami in 2001 to attend school and perform with artists such as Arturo Sandoval, Micheal Brecker, David Sandborn, Diana Krall, as well as numerous corporate bands in the Miami area playing for such people as Donald Trump and opening up for Lionel Richie and Elton John. Through out my entire educational and professional career I have helped many students reach their personal and professional goals. As a teacher I understand the importance of patience and persistence, I utilize positive reinforcement and encouragement. Music is meant to be fun so therefore I make the lesson FUN! My teaching ...
Students begin with the Rubank method and add in Arban's. A strong emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of scales, ear training, sight reading, and music theory. Along with this we have fun playing the music student enjoys.
I have been teaching music for over 20 years and playing as a professional musician for even longer. I know how to get the best out of my students and have fun doing it. I'm a University of South Florida grad and I have worked and studies in Las Vegas and at the Berklee school of music. My students constantly win superiors at contest and sit in the upper chairs in band and orchestra. Lets have some fun and make some music. *** Lesson Details *** In a laid back fun way we will learn the fundamentals of our instrument. I start out with the All For Strings series of books and add the Suzuki method books for some tunes. In 3 to 6 months you will be playing the music you like and having fun and learning new things while you do. *** Studio Equipment *** Lessons in the living room
I teach beginners how to make a musical sound, how to have a good embouchure as well as learning proper breathing techniques. We will also learn to play songs. Intermediate students will learn how to rapidly improve their overall ability, as well as learn how to play different styles correctly. Scales lip slurs and arpeggios will be learned. Advanced students will address individual problems as needed. Common problems include poor intonation, weak endurance, needing to acquire more range and playing stylistically correct interpretations (ie-symphonic vs jazz vs funk). In addition, with ALL levels, we will advance the student's knowledge and comprehension of music theory.
I have been playing for 11 years and performing in public for about 7. I have experience in both jazz and classical and have playing with various bands and ensembles including; wedding bands, Mary J. Blidge/David Foster Christmas special, Kansas.
My primary instruction revolves around music, especially playing the trumpet and jazz music. I began teaching about halfway through my undergraduate degree at Kennesaw State University. Once I graduated I moved to Tampa, FL where I am now a second graduate student in the University of South Florida's jazz program. In addition to my teaching experience I have about 11 years of trumpet playing experience, 7 years of which is public performing and auditioning for various ensembles.
