Students will be instructed and prepared for school ensemble placement auditions, honor band auditions, youth orchestra auditions, summer camps, competitions, and exams!
Students will be provided with personalized and structured lesson plans to aid with organization and plan their practicing.
I am passionate about education and have been teaching students of all ages for 10+ years in the San Francisco Bay Area, Pittsburgh, and currently in Los Angeles. I have worked with students as young as six years old to college music majors. My students have won principal chairs in their school bands and local competitions.
As a native California music student myself, I am well-acquainted with the school ensemble systems, Regional and All-State honor bands, local youth orchestras, and state ensemble festivals. I have also taken and am familiar with the Certificate of Merit exam system of music training in California.
I have extended experience in leading various groups of up to 350 students in size, and as a result, I teach effective skills in problem-solving, communication, organization,
time-management, and perseverance in my students that are applicable to all aspects of life. Coupled with my background in Psychology, I use proven learning techniques in my lessons to develop effective learning strategies for my students.
My teaching curriculum integrates repertoire spanning of all musical genres, etudes, technical studies, music theory, ear-training, and basic music history. I am committed to helping and inspiring students to achieve their goals, whether you are simply learning for enjoyment or aspiring to win an audition, all while developing your maturity and enjoyment for music.
