Learn how to create different parts for songs or pieces and keep everything sounding interesting. Creativity is the name of the game!

About Charlie

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 ...

Awesome

Charlie is not only a great teacher, but a great guy. he is fun and easy to be around, creating a relaxing environment for learning. Everything i know how to do on bass was made possible by Charlie. He is slow with the process and makes sure not to rush you and makes sure you understand 100% of the material before moving on. He is simply awesome.

About Janetta

Many of my students not only learn to sing, they also learn to write their own songs and record. However, if you want to learn to sing, we can do that. I have two Master's degrees, one in education and one in supervision. So I understand how students learn. I have been teaching over 10 years. My training took place with very special teachers, people who write, and sing for a living. Jai josel who worked for RCA, Jason Blume, who wrote for Brittney Spears, and Stephen Schwartz who wrote the Broadway Musical, Wicked. My singing teachers include Van Christy, Roger Love, Rosemary Bulter and others. Recently I completed an album of 12 original songs. I have a website which I will share with you after you enroll in my class.
