I teach beginning, intermediate and advanced lessons for all ages.  Studying to be a musician is studying to be a hard worker, an intuitive learner, a creative thinker, and most of all a human being.

If I teach musicianship and how to get invested in the music you play, everything else (intonation, technique, style, aural skills) falls into place.  I place a very heavy emphasis on requiring students to listen to music and develop their own interests.  This way, armed with their own personal musical goals, standard lessons and technique practice becomes necessary and easier to become invested in.  

In terms of method books, Simandl is a rock-solid foundation for any sort of playing, though I have worked out of the Rabbath and Ray Brown books before.

I charge $45 a lesson, $55 if you'd like to me to come to your house to teach.
