How Colin jams with you: Colin has taught music in the Boston area since 2017, and focuses on fundamental, technical playing and reading skills while exploring each student’s individual interests. “I try to find a way to be flexible with students so that they are engaged and working on music they care about while building general musicianship skills,” he says.
