eaching for me is about analyzing the particular playing style and physical habits of each player, and is therefore individualized. My teaching comes largely from my study of the Alexander Technique which has been ongoing for the last 18 years. Together I work with each student to find the easiest way to make the music physically, and perhaps more importantly to allow the music to come alive.
Lessons are given during most weeks in NYC, and most weekends in Easton, Pennsylvania. Please contact me if you would like information about the logistics and rates.
I am experienced at working with people with physical playing-induced problems and welcome a challenge!
For those who are unable to travel to NYC or PA , SKYPE lessons are now available. The lessons are a way for each individual student to look closely at their particular whole body technique and look at alternatives that can make playing simultaneously more musical and physically freer.
