About Me

I draw on my experience, as a professional musician of 25 years, in my teaching of others. This experience includes -
Church music; both as a soloist and as a music director.
Touring musician; stage presence, improvisation, sound.
Carnival Cruise Lines staff musician; '99 -2000

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that your interest in the instrument from the "get-go" is what makes the lessons seem to fly by. As you learn, this interest only gets stronger. It is my responsibility as the teacher to make sure your time spent with me is time spent where knowledge is TRANSFERRED to you and not DISPLAYED to you. There will be responsibilities for you as the student, as this is necessary in order for you to get intimately acquainted with your instrument. But my style of teaching is simple & laid back. I feel the need that learning be enjoyable...as we both learn together and as you get to the place that you want to be as a musician!...at your pace!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my personal instrument. The student must provide instrument he / she wishes to learn on.

John B. Concord, NC

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Guitar, Music Theory

About Me

Fun, professional, and relaxed. Experienced instructor since 1988. First paid public performance was in 1983, so I've been at this a while, and love it.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students learn from popular music beginning with basic chords and strumming and simple melodies. After 3 months with correct practice the student should be able to strum a number of songs and change chords smoothly. After 3 months bar chords and more complex melodies are introduced, and beyond 6 months, one can expect to progress into music theory and improvisation.

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Southern Rock, Country, Metal, Alternative, Pop, Improvisation

Charlie P. Charlotte, NC

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Songwriting

About Me

I have been passing on what I've learned in my own studies, personal and privately taught, to help new students get the strong foundations for becoming the best musician they can be. I've been playing since age 6 (now 44) and performing since 18. I started with Classical guitar, then Rock and Jazz. In all my years of study, I've learned how to teach and how NOT to teach. I have had many years of private lessons. I've written, recorded and performed for over 20 years. My wife and I even do voice over work on occasion.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students have become friends and I've seen many go on to become performers, songwriters and teachers. I also use a wide range of materials when teaching like DVDs, CDs, and computer 'play along' tracks. I love teaching, seeing people smile and enjoy making music. Music is like painting : I try to show students as many colors as I can and encourage them to create something of their own which others can enjoy as well.
I sometimes learn FROM my students as they present something they wish top learn but I must first figure it out before showing them how to play it. It's very give and take when I teach.

*** Studio Equipment ***
studio on second floor for lessons; chairs and equipment available; books, metronomes, music stands, cd players, cables and amps; acoustic & electric guitars.

*** Specialties ***
Rock and Jazz and appreciation of Classical
Expose students to music they normally don't listen to.
Guidance through improvisation and creative process.

About Me

First and most importantly, I'm a 40 year-old dad to two great little boys and a husband to a fantastic wife - but before I was either one...I was a rocker.

I got my first guitar when I was 15 years old (I had wanted one for 5 years but my sister cried too much about piano lessons so she blew it for me - but that's another story), and started taking lessons from a fantastic teacher shortly thereafter. By the time I was 18, I moved off to college, where I proceeded to focus all my attention (much to my parents' dismay) on playing and forming a band. My parents got kinda mad, but I put together that band - which lead to a bigger, better band and a record deal. I spent my early and mid 20s touring, making a record and getting so close to rock stardom that I could taste it - but it wasn't meant to be.

I moved home, got married, got a "real" job, had kids and did everything society "tells" you to do - but something was missing. About a year ago, I figured out what it was; sharing music with other people.

I've been teaching for over a year now, and I'm having a ball. The joy of seeing a new guitar player string 3 chords together is just as exciting to me now as playing a great song on stage was way back when. I'd love to have the opportunity to share that feeling with you too!

*** Lesson Details ***
We'll spend our first lesson getting to know each other. Music is all about the connection you make to the sounds you hear - and since we'll be making lots of those together, we should learn a little about each other. I'll discover how much (if any) musical experience you have, and determine a proper starting point for your education.

Like other instructors, I'll teach you chords, scales, rhythm and theory - but I'll do it in a way that's fun and exciting for you. Part of getting to know you is finding out what kind of music you enjoy. Do you like pop? Rock? Metal? Country? I use songs to illustrate the lessons each week, so I'll do my best to find music that you'll enjoy playing. There will be times where our song of the week might not be your cup of tea, but hopefully I'll be able to show you why that song's important, and maybe even broaden your musical horizons.

At the end of each lesson, you'll head out with new sheet music, links to videos of the original songs, and any other supplemental material you may need. By the end of the first month, you should be playing songs!

About Me

I have been teaching music for 30+ years and I love it! Music allows the mind to be creative, opens new doors of relaxation and gives expression to the soul. I have taught all ages, from kindergarteners to senior adults.

My full time job is being a music teacher in an elementary school, where I use guitars, steel drums, karaoke and world drums (just to name a few) to help students learn to express themselves and enhance their learning experience. Let me be your music teacher and let's get started on a new adventure.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons will include learning to read music, techniques on whatever instrument you choose, and encouragement to do your best always. I can tailor your lesson to whatever style of music you like.
