Lessons available on piano, brass, music theory, ear training, rhythm skills, piano skills (including chord symbol reading), music history, conducting, and music technology. Lessons can be virtual or in person with adequate social distancing.
Piano lessons are offered to adult beginners and returners. Don't wait another year before you learn or relearn the piano! At this point in my life, I enjoy "rebooting" my love of playing the piano and performing on the piano, and I want to share that joy with other adults.
Additional music lessons and tutorings are offered for all types of instruments, and can vary from learning to read music, learning to count and perform rhythms, learning about the different styles of music, learning to read chord symbols (as in a jazz or popular fake book), learning how to conduct, getting coaching on performing and auditioning, and preparing yourself to major in music by gaining piano skills and by studying music theory.
I am experienced in technology with many programs, software, and applications including Audacity Music Recording and Editing, Finale Music Publishing sofware, Microsoft Programs (Word, Excel, Powerpoint), iMovie and iTunes. I can help you with recording and editing your own music, arranging your own music, creating and launching YouTube videos with your edited music, creating mp3 files of your music, creating loops of music to assist you with practicing and improvisation, and organizing your photos into a slideshow with music, either for public or private viewing on YouTube.
Brass lessons are for performers of all levels. My primary instruments are trombone and euphonium, but I teach all brass instruments.
