About Me

Greetings! I hope to be of great guidance in your musical journey.
Throughout my music career, I've had the chance to learn from some very remarkable master musicians of many styles.
First picking up the classical and electric guitars at age 13, I began to play classical guitar for my middle school's guitar ensemble, as well as electric guitar for the school's Rock Ensemble. I also played clarinet and alto sax for those two years, but it was very clear to me that guitar was my passion.
Under the direction of the legendary Doug Burris at MBSH, I completed his 4 year classical guitar program in 3 years (I graduated a year early), and was a member of the classical guitar quartet as well as the school's famous Rock Ensemble (est. 1972). I got to travel across the country to compete in several music festivals and evaluations since; achieving many awards and acknowledgements.
Since my first guitar course, I was tutoring the class. This, along with my passion for music, guitar, and teaching drove me to eventually become a private guitar teacher at age 15. I have since taught all types of students, with great results. In addition to teaching private lessons, I also have a website with short text/video lessons on guitar licks and techniques.
Primarily a rock/metal/neoclassical/shred guitarist, I specialize in electric guitar (6 and 7 string), but am also available for beginner classical guitar and electric bass as well as general technique/theory lessons. Though primarily influenced by virtuoso shredders, I consider myself a very open minded musician and appreciate all styles of music. Whether you're a beginner just learning your first scale or have been playing for a while and want to get to the next level of understanding and performance, I can help!

Walter H. Pompano Beach, FL

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Cello, Clarinet, Classical Guitar, French Horn, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Saxophone, Trumpet, Violin

About Me

Professional guitarist/vocalist since 1976. Performed in Rock bands, Show Bands, Calypso bands, Jazz bands, and, yes, Wedding Bands. I have performed as a solo guitarist for wedding ceremonies, art shows, and other private functions. I have also performed on the trumpet and saxophone in bands, and on the violin and cello for wedding ceremonies.
Private guitar and bass instructor since 1984; Orchestral strings instructor since 1988.
My students benefit from my professional experience in that they focus directly on what is necessary as a performer and don't waste time on strictly theoretical exercises.

*** Lesson Details ***
When students take lessons from me I take some time to get to know their reasons for wanting to play the instrument and who their favorite artists/bands are. That way I can gear the lessons towards their interests which keeps them motivated and helps them relate what they're learning to "real-world" music.
I try to make the learning of music and technique as much fun as possible using challenges and games.
I base my lessons on a research based curriculum called "Jump right In" where students will eventually learn to "hear" the music they are reading the same way one hears the words they are reading in a book. Then, based on their age and interests, I use whatever instrumental technique books I feel are best suited for that particular individual.
After 3-6 months guitar students should be able to read and play basic chord progressions and simple single note melodies both by ear and by using standard music notation. This will mostly be in first position.
Similarly, Bass students should be able to read and play bass lines that fit basic chord progressions, and be able to play simple single note melodies in first position.
String students should have basic control of the bow and be able to read and play simple melodies by ear and by using standard music notation on at least 3 strings in first position.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide an amplifier, sound system, chairs, music stands, Keyboard with rhythm section, and a computer with a vast selection of music for listening and performing.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide supplemental materials, my own guitar and music stand and an Mp3 recorder to record lessons.
I expect students to purchase a method book, their own instrument, a music stand and a tuner.

*** Specialties ***
I am familiar with most band and string methods as well as the Gordon/Grunow "Jump Right In" method.
I perform in all styles from Classical to Calypso and everything in between.

About Me

Lucian W is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music in Boston and former faculty member of the Hartford Conservatory. His vocal studies have been with Jacqueline Jarrett and David Baker in Connecticut, Jane Ellison at Loyola University in Montreal, noted operatic tenor Carmine Gagliardi in New York City, and Gina Moretta (whose students have included Gloria Estefan and Jon Secada) in Miami. He studied privately with world famous jazz guitarists George Benson and Chuck Wayne and has had a full time performing career of several decades as a guitarist, pianist, vocalist, bassist, arranger and orchestra leader.
Lucian believes that by sharing his enjoyment of making music with his students, he can give them confidence in other areas. That is because, in order to make music, they must go through a process of physical discovery through practice. They are then empowered by experiencing the connections between inspiration, work, and pleasure.
He performs, as a solo entertainer, an unusually wide ranging repertoire because of his versatility on guitar, piano, and vocals. Being an accomplished arranger with a vast library of charts also allows him to lead a ten piece orchestra as competently as a trio or quartet. He has performed extensively in New York, Chicago, Cape Cod, and Florida.

*** Lesson Details ***
I always try to make lessons as comfortable and enjoyable as possible yet challenging enough to maintain interest. I build lessons around the student's individual interests (specific songs or styles) so that he or she can learn the technical fundamentals in a relevant context.
My own curriculum is supplemented by the following:
Guitar: Hal Leonard Guitar Method, Aaron Shearer Classical Guitar Method
Piano: Alfred's Basic Piano Course , John W. Schaum Piano Course
Voice: Jeffrey Allen's Secrets of Singing, Nicola Vaccai Practical Method

*** Studio Equipment ***
Hardman baby grand acoustic piano
OptimusMD1600 electronic keyboard
Crate TX50D guitar amplifer

*** Specialties ***
- Singing lesson time is generally divided 50/50 between voice building and repertoire. I accompany vocalists on both piano and guitar, teaching the melody notes as they are sung along with the piano. Then, once the melody is learned, I often switch to the guitar with just chordal backing. The acoustic guitar is also softer than the piano and allows the singer hear their own voice better. For voice building, I use my own concepts plus approaches of famous voice teachers like Jeffrey Allen, Seth Riggs, and Anthony Frissel.
- I am very experienced performing all styles of guitar and can cater to the student's specific area of interest, whether it be rock, folk, classical, or jazz.
- With piano, I work on fundamentals of reading and technique. Learning basic harmony and chord construction starting with triads (3 note chords), the student can soon read single stave lead sheets (a form of music notation widely utilized by professional musicians) as well as the grand staff. This approach trains the ear and makes learning how to play popular songs much easier.
