General Teaching Style
I try to build a strong sense of music theory using songs the student enjoys.
My curriculum varies as I tailor it to the learning styles of each student -- some are more visual, others more analytical, and I create lessons that will resonate with them.
I'm particularly skilled in determining what path to take based on a student’s learning particularities. Also, I'm good at helping simplify a difficult topic such as improvisation.
Additional Experience & Instruments
I've been performing music for 40 years, in every genre. In addition to the instruments that I teach, I also have experience playing the guitar and bass.
Most Inspirational Music Moment
Probably the first time I had to play a jazz club with my band. The level of musicianship I witnessed at the club was pretty humbling. It made me want to be a stronger performer.
