Instruction

Years ago I came to the realization that I am a teacher, fundamentally, down to my marrow.  It doesn’t really matter what the subject is;  any time I learn something intentionally, I attack it as though I might have to teach it back tomorrow.  That is a rich and rewarding method for learning in and of itself, even if I never get the chance to share back what I learn, and I wouldn’t change that habit for the world.

And I love working with music students, especially individually.  I love it so much that I tend to deliberately downplay the whole “instructor” thing, and instead consider myself an available facilitator and coach for a conceptually self-taught student.

If you are here prospecting, I suspect you may have a few questions, such as:

What, exactly, is it that you teach?
What is your musical background?
Are you the right instructor for me?
What would working with you be like?
How should I contact you to learn more?

Hopefully those links will tell you most of what you need to know.  If nothing else, reading through them should give you a remarkably clear picture of what you’ll get in person:  I’m pretty much just like that.
