My diverse background ensures that I can adapt and challenge students of all ability levels and skill sets. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Baylor University, where I majored in both philosophy and music. In addition, I am currently writing a dissertation as part of the PhD program in Musicology at CU-Boulder. I have over 7 years of private teaching experience, working with individuals, groups, and large classrooms of students ranging from fifth grade to undergraduate. I have taught at school districts and private schools in Texas and Colorado, and also taught courses, tutored students and taught lessons at CU-Boulder. I know what it takes to succeed! *** Lesson Details *** Lessons are very carefully tailored to the individual student, and each lesson begins and ends with an exercise that the student can repeat every day until the next lesson. The middle of each lesson is primarily for learning new material. *** Specialties *** Particular experience teaching jazz and music history, but extensive experience with all aspects of music performance and social science.
