When people ask me at gigs if I give lessons, I respond "heck yes, I give lessons." When I was growing up, it was very difficult to find a teacher who would work with me on what I wanted. Detroit is abundant with classical teachers, but they would all grumble when I wanted help with other stuff, like improvisation, lead playing, and endurance for other situations. When I take on trumpet students, I realize that each player is unique and needs to travel his/her own unique path to success!
I teach in-person around the Tampa Bay area, especially in Sarasota:
Workshops, masterclasses, clinics, whatever they're called. I love giving these and have worked with the following bands:
I've got a diverse background in music and education; if you bring me in to work with your ensemble, I promise they'll have a great time and come away with a lot of new ideas and things to practice.
Teaching online is fantastic, though you naturally lose some of the interactivity from being in the same room. I've given these on Skype and Facetime, though at a lower cost than in-person lessons for that reason. One benefit you do gain from a "telematic" session is the use of shared software, such as a digital board for drawing and sharing musical examples, the ability to easily play (for jamming) and record music for later study. So, again, when the question is "do you teach online?" the answer is "heck yes I do!" The musical mind is always turning and as a result always provides challenges that the creative spirit wants to tackle.
