About me

I began lessons in 2nd grade, accompanied Sunday School worship at 9, became a church organist at 11, accompanied orchestra and choir in Jr-Sr. High School. Majored in Music Education at college. Taught public school music for 30 years. Have been a church organist for 75 years. Played for roller skating and dinner music. I am inspired by seeing the student achieve the concepts of musical performance. My teaching philosophy is that the student is doing the best he can at the moment, and that we are working as a team to improve and learn new things.

Specialties

Correct rhythm.

Lesson details

Begin with scales and music theory workbook > listen to assigned lesson > offer suggestions for correction if necessary > drill where needed > listen again > assign review or new work with explanation. I use positive reinforcement an try to play duets with the student to establish the feel of the music.
