Approach to Teaching:Why are you here? What do you want from your lesson? What do you hope to achieve? Do you need help with your band music, or would you like to go beyond it, deeper into music, and learn more than what you already understand? Either way, your lesson with me will focus on proper application of basic techniques. I will teach you the instrument, melody, rhythm and the music theory needed to follow your passion and achieve your musical goals.
