- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to first get a sense of the student’s and parent’s (where applicable) goals for the lessons. In addition, I like to know what type of music the student likes and what previous musical background he/she/they has. I then plan to work on building/refining foundation and show the many different techniques I've developed over the years to lead students to the highest level of success possible!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I took 5 years of piano lessons from age 7-12 at Indian Hill Music School, took 11 years of private drum lessons (pretty consistently on a weekly basis), and graduated Berklee College of Music Cum Laude honors with 2 degrees - one being Drum Performance, and the other being Electronic Production & Design. I've also been trained in music education/as a music teacher through my experiences at Indian Hill Music School (Littleton, MA), The West End House Boys & Girls Club (Allston, MA), the Boston Public Schools' Counseling & Intervention Center in Roslindale, MA, Mary Lyon Pilot High School (Brighton, MA), and Somerville Public Schools (Somerville, MA), as well as privately teaching for the past 15 years.
