Starting Out

People come from different situations. No two people learn the same way, and no two people can be taught the same way. Excellence through dynamic instruction is not a catch phrase, it's my method. My mission is to aid you in success, regardless of the your situation and regardless of how you learn. 

End Goals
I don't want to teach you to play a song on your instrument, I want to teach you to play music with your instrument. I want to give you a foundation to stand on. One that your mountain of music will stand upon for your entire life. If I don't eventually put myself out of a job through turning you into an independently functional musician, then I haven't done my job.

Learning Outcomes

Assuming that a student has continued to work with me for an acceptable amount of time; all students should be able too:

  • Play with good tone (regardless of instrument type).
  • Play with correct rhythm.
  • And above all else, read and produce pitch accurately.

All students of mine learn to read music. The ability to read music is the most fundamental aspect of what I teach.
