MAKING EVERY LESSON COUNT
A Patient Music Teacher
Music has always been a passion of mine. I first wanted to be a drummer. My oldest sister played french horn in the high school band. I saw the high school band drummers playing and thought "that is what I want to do". I was so excited when I was old enough to join band in school. That was the only option I had at the time. We could could not cover the cost of music lessons and other than my older sister there were no musicians I knew in the family. My heart sank when I was told I could not play drums. We could not cover the expense of the instruments. I ended up on the bassoon and played that for three years. In high school my opportunity to play drums came. I seized the opportunity and was able to transition to drums. At this time I had also started playing guitar. I joined the high school jazz band and also learned to play the bass guitar. In college I continued my learning on all three instruments and expanded to other instruments as a instrumental music education major. I have been teaching music since I graduated college. I have been a director and taught in public education grades Pre-K through 8th grade. I have also taught privately since before I graduated at many local music stores. I have also played for various local music groups in the DFW area. Currently I teach Pre-K music and play for two local groups. One group is a small country/rock group and the other is a ministry group that plays for local shelters and Texas youth correctional facilities. I am also a husband and father. My wife shares a passion for music and we try to perform together when we can. She is a fantastic vocalist and vocal music teacher at Music N Arts in Hurst. I hope to pass on my love of music to my own children. I have experience and patience to be an excellent music teacher. I am always learning more. I am currently in a graduate program for educational technology and leadership. I hope to use my knowledge gained there to expand my music teaching in a highly effective way.
I am a patient, experienced music teacher. I look forward to opportunity to share my experience and knowledge.
