Millikin University, Decatur, Illinois
I attended Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois as an art major but, in addition, I had the fortunate opportunity to tour, perform and record with the Millikin University Jazz band. It was during my later college years where I studied music theory, ear training, improvisation and Jazz theory. This was also the time that I had the chance to meet and perform with notable musicians of the time such as Bill Homan, Doc Severensen, and Mel Torme.
As a previously self taught musician I have found that this is not always the best route to learning music. I started as many young musicians have, going through the long hours of practice only to get frustrated and put the instrument aside. Luckily, my desire to learn music and my curious nature propelled me to continue on, and self motivation pushed me to become the musician I am today. So, it is in my opinion that through the encouragement of someone who has been there, young musicians will benefit from the instruction of someone who can instruct them to avoid the bad habits and advance more quickly as a musician.

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.
Drawing is something that is subjective to each person. As a tutor I am able to help the indiviual to look at drawing as a means of self expression. I also encouracge the student to "see" their drawings in their mind before touching the paper, I also encourage them to "think" about different was to visualize the drawings through positive and negative shapes, composition and even the materials that they choose. As a graduate of Millikin University with a Bachelor's of Fine Art, I have produced and sold many paintings, prints, drawings and photographic works.
I have been playing guitar and bass for nearly 35 years now. Playing is very simple and can be learned by just about anyone of any age. I can assisit in learning the basics needed to not only play guitar but to play songs, which is the goal of every person that picks up the guitar.
Painting, like drawing is something that is subjective to each person. As a tutor I am able to help the indiviual to look at painting as a means of self expression. I am able to work in oils, acrylics or watercolors and help guide the student in which ever medium they choose to work with. Through the use of color shape and composition the student can produce a piece of artwork that they can be proud of.
