About this pro
With more than 25 years teaching experience, I am also a professional musician and singer/songwriter. I offer 1/2 hour ($22) and full hour ($40). Lessons include reading music, music theory, music history, and where applicable include instruction on voice and song composition. I am work with beginner through advanced students of all ages, and am skilled at uncovering and correcting bad habits and expanding students' knowledge of music beyond simply the instruction of their chosen instrument. I appreciate the opportunity to work with a diverse group of students, and teach all ages. It is especially rewarding to see children gain confidence and the ability for students to express themselves through music. Sharing my own passion for music by introducing students to a more immersive experience of music and music history across genres is not only personally rewarding but a unique aspect to my teaching style.
