Midlothian Music Lessons Private lessons in Richmond, VA
Our philosophy about Music Education is simple: ALL students are capable of playing music if they spend time practicing a good curriculum. Our teachers focus on good technique, strong cognitive processing of concepts and clear assignments of musical exercises and pieces that combine the two.
The tricky part is knowing how to engage the student with musical material they want to play while not neglecting essential aspects of music education.
We have a goal of making available the kind of teacher who can help any student gain the lifelong skill of playing music if they are willing to spend their time learning.
My background as a performer is diverse and draws on extensive training as both a classical and solo jazz guitarist. As a teacher my greatest strength is an ability to adapt a traditional sight-reading/theory/ ear training approach to any style of playing. This creates a well rounded and trained player with permanent skills, regardless of whether they study classical, jazz or popular styles.
I bring an honest love of teaching music to my lessons. My approach to teaching lessons has been informed by my experiences with hundreds of students, as well as by my experience as a Home Educator to my own four children, now grown.
I have extensive training as a classical percussionist as well as a set player in a band format. As a teacher I focus first on good snare fundamentals and solid reading of written rhythms before moving on to the complexity of the whole set.
