Lessons, Classes, Concerts and Referrals.
Book individual lessons, live Jazz for your event or find a coach for a Classical quartet, Rock band or Jazz combo.
There is power in helping students act on their highest musical excitement while sharing my own. Lesson plans and materials I choose always have this in mind. Regardless of the age group or number of students I create a fun-fist approach so that the instruction is integrated to allow them to enjoy the process as much the product or performance. This inspires and nurtures a lifelong love of music in my students; providing engaging and comprehensive education, fostering creativity, appreciation for all music, and empowering each individual to reach their full potential.
