« I had Jason as a band teacher in middle school. He was very patient with each student and he did a great job giving us the resources we needed to get better. Now as an adult, I appreciate how hard he worked to help us even more. He went above and beyond and was very knowledgeable. The impact he had on me as my band teacher will stick with me for the rest of my life. »

25+ year band director that loves to laugh and makes learning fun.

Methodology

My passion is to help students understand how to read rhythm and musical notation. If you can not read, it is difficult, if not impossible, to practice. Passion is a byproduct of understanding. I like to give specific goals during each lesson, then conclude with a short review at the end.

Background

I served in the Army Band, as flutist for 6 years and have been teaching for 21+ years in both pubic and private schools. 8 years of that time I served as a teacher/missionary in Bangkok, Thailand. I learned a lot about different cultures as there were 22 different nations at the school where I taught.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $5
Rate for online lessons : $50/h

Details

I prefer 30 minute lessons to start.
Pay for 5 thirty minute weekly lessons up front. Weekly lessons build accountability, responsibility and consistency.
24 hour cancellation policy. Full re-schedule X-2 (Life happens. Communication is the key)

I had Jason as a band teacher in middle school. He was very patient with each student and he did a great job giving us the resources we needed to get better. Now as an adult, I appreciate how hard he worked to help us even more. He went above and beyond and was very knowledgeable. The impact he had on me as my band teacher will stick with me for the rest of my life.

Sakda

Mr. Jason was my high school band director during my senior year. During the year he has pushed my potential and encouraged me to take my expression and playing to the next level. I wouldn't be on my musical path if it wasn't for him giving me a chance to be myself.
