I originally started teaching music privately to enhance my performing career. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I really enjoyed leading a student along in their musical direction. The longer I taught, the more I learned how to explain concepts in multiple ways, providing my students with different viewpoints on an idea. In this way I discovered I was not only teaching, but learning as well. My teaching method, continually evolving, is a distillation of my own musical experiences and the ideas and nurturing that my former teachers instilled in me.
”Rewarding” is one way of expressing the satisfaction of seeing a student progress. It is a joy to listen, over time, to a student go from the early rudimentary musical attempts, to eventually hearing the student express his/her soul and feeling in the music. Then, as time passes, my satisfaction and pride increases as I see the same musician on a gig, or on the way to a professional musical performance. Or, just knowing that the student will have a more profound understanding and perception of the art in later life.
No matter where you are in your musical journey, I am happy to help.
Thank you so much for the wonderful lessons. You
have really inspired me to continue music in my life. I have appreciated your understanding and nuturing throughout this journey, and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher to lay the foundation for my musical future.
Long live the sax!
With great fondness,
