Lesson Feesfrom $30.00 / 30 Minutes
I have been a music educator for over 20 years in both private lessons and in classroom settings. I am currently teaching at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts where I teach Jazz Vocals, Composition, Music Pedagogy, Singer-Songwriter, Music Business, and Music Theory. I hold a Master of Music Degree from the University of Oregon, and I also studied for two years at The New School in Manhattan, New York. I have been performing and composing/arranging professionally since before I finished high school. Music has brought immeasurable joy to my life, and it is my passion to share that joy with others.
My teaching style is based on inquiry and I enjoy leading students to make discoveries for themselves to achieve greater understanding. I am highly attentive to students' interests and goals and I am able to adjust my teaching style based on the students type of learnng.
I like to use the Schaum series of books for beginning piano students. For most other areas of interest, I will provide the required materials.
