I teach using a combination of book knowledge, music theory, ear training, but I like to make it fun and bring out the joy in music for my students. After all, music is the universal language and has vast benefits in all aspects of life.
I've been an touring singer/songwriter/bandleader for 20 years and a teacher for 15. I would love to help any aspiring or already performing musicians reach their goals. I have taught privately, in schools and as an Artist In Residence at Bentley University in the United States. I've taught all ages and levels in both individual and group settings.
After the initial lesson, I sell lessons in packages of 5 lessons which must be used within 2 months. Weekly lessons are best for results and improvement. 24 hours notice is required to cancel a lesson.
