Interested in private music lessons? You’ve come to the right place. My goal for every student is to find out where you are on your musical journey, where you want to go, and then to map out a customized path to get you there.
Saxophone, Piano, Clarinet, and Flute. I also give lessons in songwriting and music production.
My bachelor’s degree is in music education from the University of North Texas, where my concentration instrument was saxophone. I have been a professional musician in the North Texas area for over 20 years, where I have worked as a performer, recording artist, producer, songwriter, and arranger as well as maintaining a studio of students.
I teach out of my home in McKinney, as well as Music and Arts in Lewisville and Texas Amps and Axes in Prosper.
For most people lessons are scheduled for 30 minutes. More advanced students can be scheduled for 45 or 60 minute lessons if desired.
While lessons can vary depending on the instrument and ability level of the student, most lessons will follow a general flow of working through warm-ups, fundamentals, and then performance pieces. I make a point to ask before each session if there is anything the student specifically wants to work on (assignments from school, audition prep, or just songs they’d like to learn how to play). I feel strongly that while classical and fundamental aspects of each instrument are important, it’s also vital that students work on music that is exciting and relevant to them personally. Finally, my goal for every student is to make music education something they absolutely love, and that high levels of musicianship and achievement are complimented with high levels of fun in the process.
Whether you’re just starting out, getting back into music after a break, or even professionals looking to learn some new skills, I’d love to help you on your musical journey!
