Welcome,

The following is a brief outline of my teaching and some of the programs I have developed over the years.

We begin by helping you develop skills in improvisation, composing, arranging and playing by ear.  You will have the technique and ability to create full rich arrangements of your favorite music from Fake Sheets. 

Another goal is to help you develop some strong reading skills.  Over the years I have learned over a dozen ways to practice that should help overcome most obstacles in reading and learning new music. 

            Your reading skills are developed in three areas: 

    • Sight Reading
    • Level Pieces (which take approximately a week or so to learn)
    • Concert Pieces (which could take several weeks to learn)
We cover the gamut of styles and periods, from Classical to New Age to Rock and Jazz to Latin and Ragtime.  If you have any favorite tunes or styles that you would like to learn, I will usually include those as well. I also provide opportunities for you to perform with my band and computer sequenced synthesizers, often at Recitals, or during your private and group lessons.

Your lesson time includes:
    • Private Lessons             (three half hour lessons a month)
    • Group Lessons              (one, one hour group class a month)
For those that would like a little extra help in developing some of the foundational music skills, I have available a computer lab here at my Sandy studio, as well as links to online programs that can help in rhythm development, ear training and music theory. The advantages of working with computers is numerous, the goal is to internalize many of the musical talents, so being able to read, improvise, and interpret music fluently comes much more naturally.

To learn more about my teaching and schedule, please email me or call (801)255-8863 and I will be glad to talk with you about my program, or make an appointment to meet.
