Frequently Asked Questions
1) What advice do you have for a parent looking for a teacher for their child?
For a parent looking to hire a music educator for their child, I would advise them to not just search for the best technical player, but look for an individual that can not only perform at a high level but also teach well! The ability to share and communicate the secrets behind each instrument and genre of music is essential in order to achieve greatness. Musical development is crucial and shockingly the instructor's ability to communicate well is often overlooked.
2) Why does your teaching stand out from any other teacher?
Unfortunately there are many instructors out their who simply teach for a paycheck and some who even preach bad habits and frustrate their students. Having been a frustrated student myself, discovering the nuances behind playing each instrument and each style of music immediately made me want to educate the rest of the world the right way. I am committed to the education of individuals aspiring to play music, and my versatility and effective teaching methods will help you grow
3) What should a student ask themselves in hiring the right teacher?
A student should ask themselves in search of the right teacher for them: What style of music do I want to learn? What do I want to become, how far am I willing to take this? What is the motivation behind me wanting to learn music? Then discover which teacher fits your needs!
4) What do I wish to learn from a teacher?
If I was a student, I would be interested in accumulating the knowledge to perform music on my instrument and in various genres such as jazz, classical, blues, and rock. I would be interested in learning the stylistic elements, theory, technique, and nuances behind each instrument and style of music. Also, I want to be able to play like my favorite musician, the one who inspired me to play my instrument!
5) What should I consider before requesting your services?
Clients should consider what they want to pursue, their interests, and why they want to learn music. What about it intrigues them: What instrument? What style of music? What is their goal in music, to major in college, to play for family and friends, to perform, ect? Consider that I play multiple instruments in multiple genres of music, and my versatility will assist you in understanding music theory that will help you grow as an artist!
