Hello! I teach guitar & drums for all levels of proficiency, as well as keyboard, harmonica, clarinet, mandolin for beginners. I can help with music theory, songwriting, coaching bands and more!
I work with students of all ages, individual or group settings, at your home in the Heights or mine (on Dyckman & Nagle).
Lessons are $30/Hour or $20/half-hour.
Please e-mail me to discuss further.
And I've posted similar ads on craigslist. Please find below more info about my experience performing and teaching music. For anyone who is interested, I am currently seeking more students and am happy to provide references.
I began my career as a music instructor during these years as well, teaching private lessons on guitar and drums, to students of all ages (4 years old to adults). I also worked with A Gift For Music, as a teaching assistant for a third-grade violin class, and Camp Jam as a rock music camp counselor and band coach (students were aged 11-17). In 2008, I served as an AmeriCorps volunteer and spent a portion of my hours assisting the high school band director with his classes and teaching my own group music classes at a neighborhood community center.
The following year, I moved to New York City and began my career as a songwriter, performer, and recording artist. I have released two EPs, several singles, and a full length album of original music, as well as two cover albums. I have also taken up harmonica, bass guitar, clarinet, mandolin, banjo, djembe, and orchestral percussion. In addition to my solo music, I have performed drums and percussion with many bands (including pop, rock, and hip-hop), the Manhattan Wind Ensemble, musical theater productions, and church worship services.
I have also continued my teaching career. I worked for one year with Sports and Arts in Schools Foundation, teaching after-school rock band classes. I've also taught pay-what-you-can group lessons at Word Up Community Bookshop in Washington Heights. Currently I volunteer with the WHIN Music Project, assisting the violin teachers with their classes of young children, and I continue to teach private lessons around the city.
