I have over 10 years of vocal instruction with individuals, groups, and choirs in Pop, R&B, Country, Musical Theater & Gospel music. I have coached American Idol hopefuls and World Championship Winners! My Vocal Students will receive introduction to Speech Level Singing as made famous by Seth Riggs. They will be taught breathing techniques and learn the 3 singing voices that everyone has and how and when to use them. As a career belter that has also had extensive studies in classical training, I feel it important to teach how to utilize head, belt, and mix voices........correctly so as not to ruin your vocal ability. I will also teach vocal care and how to individualize vocal styling; finding your own unique voice and sound.

Classical Guitar, Guitar, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting
With classical and jazz guitar studies, with years of collaborative composition in progressive rock and fusion, and with years of solo guitar composing, I have attained a high level of technique, gained a deep understanding of music theory and songwriting, and authored a comprehensive book, "Understand, See, Hear - Become One with the Guitar." My musical journey as a composer and recording artist has always been an expression of my individuality. With many years teaching private lessons, I offer myself as a mentor, to help anyone achieve their voice, their passion, on the guitar.
*** Lesson Details ***
Music is a subjective experience. As a listener, what you love reflects yourself; similarly, what you play reflects yourself. As your mentor, my goal is to nurture your development as a guitar player, as well as, nurture your self-expression through the instrument. With perseverance, your goals as a musician can be attained with each lesson a step in understanding and in motor skills to this end. Always though, the objective is that the musical journey is fun and fulfilling.
*** Studio Equipment ***
separate music room seating for parents
*** Specialties ***
Approaching the guitar holistically, I show how the guitar is organized using templates from my book. Musical concepts such as chords and scales are applied within the guitar's holistic framework and are related to the student's preferred artists/songs. If it compliments the student's learning style, musical notation is used. Styles I specialize in are rock 'n' roll, jazz, and classical.
