My Teaching Philosophy:
To inspire the individual to discover and understand their strengths and to utilize them to their fullest potential; to obtain enough wisdom to approach their 'weaknesses' not as roadblocks, rather, as opportunities for growth. Objectivity and embodied cognition play a major role in my approach, allowing the individual to attain high levels of achievement.
Level-based instruction for Traditional Organ or Piano Lessons, or lessons in the Lister-Sink Method.
Offering instruction to all ages within these categories:
- beginner - some keyboard experience
- intermediate - little to moderate keyboard experience
- advanced - moderate to extensive keyboard experience
examples of mine and Dr. Lister-Sink's playing:
Improvisation is an important component to music making; it is incorporated into all types of lessons I offer, as it provides a clearer understanding of the layers and intricacies of written composition. Some of the subjects I like to address while teaching improvisation include, but are not limited to: theory, ear training, rhythm, and writing and reading from lead sheets.
