Hello, and thanks for your interest in online lessons!

Post-Beginner Instruction

A post-beginner is what I call a student with some exposure to an instrument. There is an understanding of fundamentals (finger placement, note names, embouchure, etc.) but the student is still in the beginning stages of his/her development as a musician. Post-beginner lessons are focused on fine-tuning fundamentals, getting to know the instrument, and making the instrument and estension of the player.

Intermediate /Advanced Instruction

The mission of intermediate/advanced lessons is to provide the experienced musician with a level of instruction similar to that which they would receive on a collegiate level. Attention is given to technique and interpretation, rather than the basic elements. For example, dynamic contrast and articulation of passages - improvement of performance is the primary function of these lessons. (Making it musical).

*Due to the nature of online instruction, the physical element being entirely removed, I cannot teach absolute beginners ( those who have never picked up an instrument) on this platform.
