The jsquared music performance center* was created to help spread my passion for music to the youth. I want to give them the same opportunities that were given to me by my band directors and the many other musicians who taught and inspired me to become the best musician that I could be.
With 30 years of experience playing and teaching musicians of all age levels ranging from elementary school students to college students, I know that each individual student learns in their own way. It is important to interact and listen to the student so that I know the best way to approach our learning sessions to get the desired result.
My focus on music fundamentals such as theory, ear training, sight reading and performance fundamentals help to ensure that my students can continue to excel even after they leave my tutelage.
The jsquared performance center lays the foundation that builds better musicians, better performers and better leaders.
*The jsquared music performance center is the name of my private lesson studio, now located at Music and Arts in Woodstock, GA.
