Background And Experience

I am a male student at Virginia Tech offering music lessons. I have several years of playing all listed instruments, both academically and in bands and groups, most notably on worship teams for several churches and Christian Organizations.

I teach using traditional theory and sheet music and also by ear and 'feel,' as I have found this to be the most useful and natural way to learn and play music. I also teach and advise on how to play in groups, as well as how to approach writing music. I am willing to teach any combination of the listed instruments, and using any desired method.

Most importantly, I want my students to have fun! I want them to learn what they want to learn and make sure they enjoy playing and practicing. I hope to instill a love of music in everyone I teach.
