Teaching is one of the most rewarding parts of my musical career. I offer years of experience having taught individual and group lessons, coached sectionals, and lead masterclasses. Additionally, I’ve taught a variety of students from beginner to adult. I currently maintain studios in my home as well as at Glenda Dawson High School in Pearland, TX. During this time I am able to offer both in-person lessons throughout the Greater Houston Area as well as virtual lessons via Zoom!
My teaching philosophy is based on encouraging musical curiosity and exploration while also motivating each of my students to set and achieve their own personal goals. Each of my students get individualized attention to help them address specific areas of their playing.

I feel like I've really improved since I've started lessons with Mr. Martin. He likes to focus a lot on detail which has really helped me be more picky with myself, and in the long run has made me better.
