About Me:
My Background: I have been a working music teacher and professional musician since 2003. My work has taken me all over the world, from exotic, global itineraries on board 5-star cruise ships, to the some of the top music venues in New York City, and the homes and schools of students in the greater New York and New Jersey area. I graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music, with a B.M. in Jazz Performance (saxophone). I also hold a Certificate of Eligibility in K-12 Music from the New Jersey Department of Education, as well as a substitute teaching certificate for Sussex County school districts in New Jersey. Philosophy of Learning: While all of my students will study the same fundamental principles regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as unique as every person. What kind of music do you want to make? I'll give you the skills you need, and help you take the necessary steps to achieve your aspirations. Not sure of what your goals are? No problem! Lessons for small children and beginners are more focused on having fun while developing a solid musical foundation and proper technique. I am available for group and private lessons at your home, studio rental, or online via FaceTime or Skype. 

Ages:
Elementary School, Pre-teen, Teenage, Adult
