My goal is to be able to give what I have received from my teachers: love for music. Without them I would never have decided to dedicate my life to music.
I believe in a holistic learning environment that is based on the interests and goals of the individual. Having worked with full classes, small groups, and over 20 indivual students, I view teaching as a collaborative exercise, working with the individuals to create a unique an indidual plan that will create fantastic results.
I was self-taught for many years, so I know how hard it is to make progress and how easily bad habits develop when you don’t have guidance. That’s why my methods are designed to make you into your own best teacher. I won’t just tell you what to do – I’ll train you to observe your own playing and use effective practice methods to overcome the challenges you encounter.
I have studied bass privately throughout middle and high school and now continue to do so as an undergraduate at the Frost School of Music. Throughout high school I was not only playing professionally, but also giving bass lessons to beginning and intermediate level players.
I teach based off the student’s needs. I will teach a student anything they want in any style or genre. I have standards for every student, however. Those are a balance of technique, theory, sight reading, ear training, and general musician. I will apply these standards with the genre in mind.
My approach to teaching is to allow the student to explore their own voice, while showing them the ways in which to navigate the complexities of harmony and rhythm. The lessons will consist of the following: sight reading both chord symbols and melody lines, identifying when a certain technique is appropriate, creating interesting bass lines over a single tonality, and a study in "the pocket".
I will go through progressive rep. from George Vance with my student and see how comfortable they are with certain portions. Based on that, we will make a plan together to work on making them stronger and more confident in the weak areas. If the student is more familiar with Suzuki we can learn from those books as well.
