Jeff studied at Berklee College of Music, in 1987. There were many great experiences of being involved in a performing arts church, various bands, and co-leading the gospel choir at Berklee’s High School Five-Week Summer Program. Over the years, he’s had the pleasure of collaborating with a friend/choreographer in Pittsburgh, played piano/keys in many bands, a few theater companies, and was an accompanist with the Dance Department of the University of South Florida in Tampa.
Jeff’s forte is intermediate level piano:
Classical, Pop/Rock/R&B, Vintage Keyboards, Musical Theater, and Accompanying for Dance.
Intermediate vocal lessons: Classical & Musical Theater ~ concentrating on proper breath control, diction, projection (filling a space with sound), and stage presence.
Lead group music experiences: where students will learn percussion/rhythm/syncopation & jam-style improvisation. Even though I’ve been a musician for almost 40 years, I’m still learning & exploring new styles ~ including orchestrating, and arranging.
Jeffrey studied at the University of Texas at Austin where he received his Bachelors (2014) and Masters (2016) Degrees and studied under Professor Patrick Hughes. It was during his Master’s program that he received a fellowship and served as the teaching assistant under Professor Hughes. He has enjoyed performing with such groups as the Austin Symphony, Colorado Music Festival, Corpus Christi Symphony, and the Round Rock Symphony. While Jeffrey’s primary instrument is the French horn, he has experience playing and teaching the other brass instruments. He believes in building a strong foundation through focusing on the fundamentals (air control, embouchure control, sound production, and a strong rhythmic foundation) while also maintaining a fun environment where students are able to become motivated and challenge themselves. Jeffrey lives in Thornton with his wife Ellen and his cat Sarabi. He is an avid Tennis and Football fan and enjoys playing the latest video games in his spare time.
