11 years of teaching elementary general and instrumental music. 10 plus years of playing professional jazz, classical and world music. Over 6 years of teaching jazz music in public schools.
I believe that good teacher-student relationships are critical in making music together. I also want to give all of my students experiences in composition, improvisation and appreciation.
Yet to be added
Bachelors in Music Education and Jazz Studies - Temple University Masters in Music Technology with Composition track - Valley Forge University
I once asked a long time orchestra attendee what drew him to a piece of music. He shared, "If I leave still humming the melody, the performance was a success. A melody should stick with you and you should want it to." My hope is the music and materials offered here will help musicians to create that effect for themselves and their audiences.
