I am an avid music lover, who loves to share my knowledge of music with all I come in contact with. I find music theory to be one of the most intriguing topics on the planet and can talk about it for hours. I have been playing guitar since I was 8 years old and playing the drums the past 4 years.

I find I learn more as I teach and dispense knowledge so that my students fully grasp the material. I have played with a few gospel groups over the years in the NYC area. I use a logical building blocks approach to teaching. The alphabet must always be learned first before spelling words and creating sentences. I look forward sharing my knowledge further as I continue to grow musically.

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 currently have two drum students teaching basic drum rudiments and beat patterns. I am versed in music theory, thus can give a holistic view of music. I have been playing drums for roughly 6 years and currently play at my church as the back up drummer. I emphasize rudiments such as paradiddles, 5-stroke rolls, flams, and basic rhythm counting. The foundations of drumming are important to fully progress in the craft and grasp more complex concepts. My students thrive off the building blocks we lay down in our first few lessons.

Guitar

I have been playing guitar since the age of 8 and have studied theory independently as well as in college. I have developed a logical, fun methodology for teaching guitar over the past few years. I currently have a student in high school who is progressing nicely in his knowledge of the guitar. I teach so that the student can make discoveries for himself by drawing on previous knowledge. The information tends to resonate more.

Music Theory

I have been a musician since the age of 8. I first picked up the guitar and began learning theory. I have progressed in my knowledge in music theory, even taking many electives in college. The knowledge of theory aids in my proficiency on the guitar.
