Piano, Guitar & Sight-Reading Lessons
About this pro
Mainly I want my students to understand what they are listening to and be able to understand the patterns of the music so to speak. So when you listen to a pop song or rock song you can pick up on where the melody or rhythm is trying to lead you as a listener. I enjoy enabling my students to be able to play the songs they enjoy hearing on the radio, especially helping them to impress their friends and family.

- How did you get started doing this type of work?While in my last year of high school I was told I needed another music class in addition with the 2 I already had. My teacher knew I already learned the material. Instead of just performing recitals, I tutored and taught sight reading and piano. I really enjoyed being able to help the other students to play songs they thought would impress the audience.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?Recently I had trouble teaching music theory to an inconsistent class room. during the very last day my boss asks me, "So one of your students will be playing take me to church like last time. It's such a beautiful song I cant wait to hear it." So I had less than an hour to teach one student the song (who left right before this) and at that moment 4 students wanted to learn it. I taught most of the song, they were gone for a week, came back the next week for the performance practiced a bit and nailed it. It was I was more so proud of them than my self. They didn't think they could at first and I really love how much they believed in them selves. It sounded great.
