Berklee Graduate, BU Music Education Doctorate student giving online and in-studio lessons

Methodology

I am deeply committed to education and course development. As a teacher and performer, critical listening and research have provided the analytical foundation for my instruction. I focus on educational quality and pedagogical need so students, both in private lessons and ensemble situations, can develop as musicians. I strive to instill performance etiquette, arranging skills, the application of theory to instrument, songwriting, harmony, melodic development, arranging, ear training, and music history. I urge my students to understand the melodic/harmonic relationships in music and to apply their musical knowledge to everything they play.

Background

I am a Guitar Instructor with almost 20 years teaching experience. I am a Berklee alumni and am currently completing my doctorate in Music Education at Boston University. I am confident the many years of teaching experience and my background in music education makes me a convincing and successful guitar instructor. Even though guitar is my principal instrument, I can play about 20 other instruments, all at an advanced level.
