Woodwind Instructor from Dallas that Plays Saxophone, Clarinet and Flute that teaches how to play instruments to the highest levels and how to take care of their instruments via regular maintenance as

Methodology

I am a Woodwind Specialist who teaches Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Oboe and Bassoon. I can also teach vocal lessons and percussion and piano.

I teach from my home studio or Webcam via Skype.

I have numerous achievements one being that I have been known to create awesome musicians whom have gone to play at various competitions that have won top level such as high school quartets making state every year and bring back home gold metals, entrance into a prestigious wind symphony with in the greater Dallas Metroplex and also chances to perform and help make their band programs much better.

What kind of teacher am I? I am the type that is easy going, but very informative, energetic and helps the student(s) achieve the maximum potential they can and then to surpass it.

What accreditation do I have to teach? I have an Associates Degree in Music Education and performance from Mountain View College in Dallas, Texas.

What would I teach? I would begin by teaching scales as that is the basic necessity of any musician.
We would delve into scale intervals, Major, Minor, Harmonic Minor, Melodic Minor, and then move into the classical Modes and finally into blues and pentatonic scales.
There would also be various musical selections given as well as technical exercises to help assist with fluidity and talks of contours within the music and various technical exercises given.

Background

I have taught for over 15 years.

I have created bands from ground zero to be elite musical bands that perform at maximum capacities on the collegiate level.
The bands I work with have won many awards and some of the students have gained entrance into some of the most prestigious universities within the United States.
I have performed with the Greater Dallas Youth Wind Symphony as a member (2002-2003) and the Dallas Wind Symphony.
The various venues I have performed at are: The Majestic Theater, Carnegie Hall, The Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Hall, Arts, Annette Strauss Park, Dallas Convention Center, Mountain View College.

I have played: Classical, Rock, Funk, Jazz, R&B and Latin Jazz

While I was at Arts I played primarily in the Wind Band, but I also performed with the R&B Ensemble and Latin Jazz Ensemble, where we performed at even more venues more frequently.

I am currently an Assistant Director at a middle school and also teach privately at various other schools and clinic their bands and small ensembles so they continue to maintain high capacity performance levels.
