Dear Parents and Students,

I am one of those who worked instead of doing what I loved. Don't let this happen to you.

I have been shooting short stories for fun since 1975 starting with a super 8 movie camera, then VHS camcorders. Now we are in the digital age. Digital cameras and editing software make the art of storytelling come alive with wonderful new possibilities.

I love this media and passing it on to someone with a passion to excel. and telling a story in music video or cinematic style is just the cherry on top.

I love teaching and I will work with young and old. Make life enjoyable.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drums

I have been playing drums since 1963. Trained in the traditional rudimental style I played for marching bands, as well as orchestras. I can teach reading for use in field drumming as well as orchestral scores and drum set playing. It is very important to learn reading, and musical structure as well as good technique. I also place emphasis on improvisation as a creativity exercise. I organized a fife and drum band for a local church, the drum line was awarded 1st place in our cities yearly parade for 5 consecutive years.

Photography

Digital Photography for the beginner can be challenging and fun. Learn with me as we discover the principles of lighting, focusing, composition, exposure, and editing. I have been a photography hobbyist for many years and would love to share what I have learned. I have recently achieved my AAS degree in video production where the use of DSLR cameras was an integral part of the program.

Video Production

The challenge is: do you want to look like You Tube, or do you want to stand out. It is about the story, and making it smooth and professional. I make video programming for You Tube and public access TV. I will show you how. I can teach you how use your camcorder, DSLR camera or video camera for best exposure and composition. I will teach basic editing in imovie or final cut pro. You will learn scripting, story boarding, and finally shooting and editing your project for sharing. And you may explore some fun special effects. After years as a hobbyist, I have recently graduated from ESGV ROP T/C with scholastic honors and an AAS degree in video production.
