I am a graduate of Cornell College, specializing in Philosophy, History, and Music Performance/Theory. As you can see, I am interested in all kinds of subjects, but I specialize in teaching private music lessons to players of all ages. I have been a music instructor on low brass instruments (Euphonium, Baritone, Trombone, Tuba), for four years now. Music lessons should be something to look forward to each week, and I am dedicated to making every lesson count. Too often music teachers rely on the student to put in all of the effort and just spend their time checking off assignments. I believe every minute I spend with a student should be fruitful to both of us.
I also believe in making lessons a fun experience for the student. I reserve some time every lesson for my students to pick what they want to work on. I am well versed in a variety of styles, including classical, jazz, rock, ska, and more! If you are looking to learn a new instrument, pick up some new skills on the one you already play, move to first chair, learn a solo for contest, or even learn how to read music for the first time, I look forward to working with you very soon.
