Two months after establishing a weekly publishing deadline for my TubaDad channel on YouTube, I am still finding my way. A lot of my content to date could be construed as teaching. However, I would describe my approach more like informal sharing. My content is not based on any teaching methods or techniques.
As for my educational background, I have a BA with Honors (I say it that way because I can) in German Studies from the University of Cincinnati. In addition to my degree in language, I have college music credit from College-Conservatory of Music at UC as well from the University of Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory of Music and Dance and the Eastern Kentucky University School of Music. After graduation, I did an additional year of graduate study in German Language and Literature with coursework in second language acquisition.
During my time at UC, I taught three sections of Beginning German and co-taught a course in Holocaust Literature.
I do have some experience teaching marching band and private lessons for tuba, euphonium/baritone, trombone, and bass guitar.
