Educational work

The right teacher can be hard to find.

There are many excellent musicians who try to "teach a bit on the side" to make ends meet, but there's a big difference between being able to do something and being able to teach it effectively. Conversely, there are many career music teachers who have little real-world experience of making music outside their living room and the odd recital. 

I bring a true passion for both making and teaching music to my studio, giving my students everything they need to grow into the musicians they want to be. Though I've of course collected a few tricks up my sleeve over a quarter-century of teaching, I don't subscribe to any one-size-fits-all "method." Instead I work closely with each student to craft a learning trajectory that takes into account their individual tastes, experiences, and goals.

I can't teach anyone who doesn't want to learn. But I guarantee that I can help anyone with the desire–and as little as 1 minute of practice time a day (no joke)–to make real & meaningful progress towards becoming a better musician.
