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.

Joey R. Huntersville, NC

Subjects Taught

Classical Guitar, Ear Training, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory

About Me

Joey R is a student of music performance for classical guitar at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He is a very friendly and compassionate musician, and is completely immersed in the music world. Naturally, he wants to share his love of music with his students, and his goal is to awaken the musical potential in his clients. He's been on a journey with guitar for 13 years. As an instructor, he is gifted in providing inspiration to his students. Also, he believes in perfection, and that one must always strive for it. Technique, expression, repertoire, sight-reading, music theory, with a touch of music-induced enthusiasm, describe the experience of studying the guitar with Joey.

From EastCoastEntertainment profile:

"Joey R has been honing his technique and artistry on the guitar for 11 years. He was born and raised in New York, where he was first introduced to classical music through the violin. Now, he is a music student of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where he continues on his spiritual and musical journey as a classical guitarist.

Joey R has studied classical guitar under the mastery of Derek Day at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, and Charles Vaughn at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. His playing reflects his Spanish culture and background, while simultaneously being fueled by his unstoppable love for the music.

During his studies on the classical guitar, he has worked with the music of Mauro Giuliani, Matteo Carcassi, Francisco Tárrega, J.S Bach, and much, much more. What separates Joey R from other musicians is his unmistakable close attention to small details in music. From studying under masters in the field, Joey R pays special attention to the basic musical components such as melody, rhythm, and harmony, while putting a tremendous amount of effort and thought into his tone production. His musical ideas are an exact reflection to how he views the world around him; a beautiful, adventurous, and emotional reality.

His repertoire is forever expanding, but focuses mostly on the Baroque and Classical Era, and contemporary Spanish music, particularly that of Antonio Lauro."

A testimonial from a past client:

From a satisfied customer:
During the summer of 2013, we secured Joey's services for a large family dinner celebration held in Charlotte. We discussed the type of atmosphere and music we desired, and Joey accommodated our needs beautifully. He was very accessible, prompt in responding to phone calls and emails, and was punctual and courteous on the day of the event. He is an accomplished guitarist, polite, and personable. We found his fees for service to be quite reasonable. Without hesitation, we give Joey our wholehearted endorsement for his work as a professional musician, and wish him much success in the years to come.
Dee & Joe
