Hey guys, my name is Joel. I would love to work with you as a student of music. I have 5 years of teaching experience (ranging from private guitar lessons, guitar group lessons, to drum, and bass lessons), and over 17 years of music playing/performing experience. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance in Classical guitar from Southwestern Assemblies of God University.
I began playing guitar when I was eight years old, and began playing in my church when I was ten. My Bachelors in Music Performance in Classical guitar studies gave me a wealth of knowledge of the guitar, and I have taught classical guitar to a certain level,but my passion however, is contemporary styles, such a rock, pop, blues, and church worship. I have had several private guitar students most being 12-18, but I am experienced and love working with all age groups 5- 65. I have played lead guitar in a touring worship group, and also tour with my own music, which is acoustic/contemporary christian rock, under my name. I am currently the worship leader at my church, and also lead worship for various church events along with performing my solo music.
I began playing bass shortly after guitar, when I was about 12, and am able to teach various levels and styles on bass. Drums was an instrument that came naturally to me, and I have played drums in various worship services, and for many years. I teach rock, contemporary pop, and contemporary worship drumming. I also incorporate the fundamentals of rhythm, and being a percussionists, such as lessons on hand drums, and auxiliary percussion instruments included.
I took 2 years of violin lesson while in college, and also studied in a group class in which I practiced the fundamentals of all bow/ string instruments. I would be very comfortable teaching a first to second year violin student.
This is just a brief snap shot into some of my history as a teacher of music, and a musician. I would love to work with you, and help you accomplish every goal you have set for yourself regarding music. Thanks, God bless.

I began playing guitar at age twelve when I asked my dad to start showing me a few chords. It didn’t take long before I came to my own and began practicing many hours a day.
As I got more and more serious about music throughout high school I wanted to take my experience to the next level and so I auditioned for and was accepted to Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. While there I performed with the school’s Small Group Combo and Big Band.
After high school I wanted to go to the next level once again and auditioned for and was accepted to a few different music colleges but decided that Boston’s New England Conservatory was the best fit for me. Here, I had the opportunity to study and perform with some of the world’s best jazz performers and composers. As a sophomore I was a part of a group who received the Honors Jazz Ensemble award and as a senior I was awarded a scholarship for composition.
Every summer since the age of thirteen I have toured the country with a band to play music in juvenile prisons. Music is such a powerful thing and it is great to be able to use it as a vehicle for helping and serving others. This is why I have chosen to make teaching music a part of my life. I am really looking forward to helping my students discover music and discover themselves through music.

I've loved music since I was able to walk. When I was 5 or 6, I would listen to my mother's stereo system, with Jim Croce playing on the 8-Track tape deck.....(ok, so I'm aging myself a little bit). I would lay on the floor in between the speakers which were turned inward toward my ears. I could lay there for hours, tapping my toes to "Bad Bad Leroy Brown", "Roller Derby Queen", "You Don't Mess Around with Jim", and many others. I would also listen to the Beatles, Seargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", and "Revolution" and be completely taken away. I didn't realize it then, but what captivated me were the songs that were written to tell stories, and the music that brought the stories to life. As I grew into my early teens, I got into Kiss, Alice Cooper, Rush, Ted Nugent, and Jimi Hendrix. (His version of "All Along the Watch Tower" was much better than Bob Dylan's original version)
During my high school years I got more into Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, because of it's energy, and decided to start learning how to play the bass guitar. As the '80s music scene was going down hill with music from Boy George and Pet Shop Boys, along with so many LA "Hair Bands", I turned off the radio. I would spend hours in record stores picking out albums from my favorites, and would go see them in concert when I could. But when I saw Sammy Hagar during his "Three Lock Box" tour, and Ted Nugent promoting his "Wango Tango" album, I realized that I wanted to be a rock star. I wanted to play guitar with such heart and soul, and write songs that inspired and excited audiences! So I bought my first guitar for $300 at a pawn shop, which was a Gibson Sonex - 180.
After playing bass guitar for the high school jazz band for a couple of years, I wanted to learn more about song writing. I was 17 when I started taking lessons. What I noticed most of all is that my instructors were trying to teach me how to play songs on the guitar, not HOW to play the guitar. I then decided the only way to learn to play the guitar is to figure out the "why" of chords, and scales, and why certain tones when payed together instill a certain emotion when heard. This way, when someone asked if I could play guitar, I could honestly say, "Yes". I would pick out certain songs to learn as a study reference, and then figure out different ways of playing them. I only wanted to play the guitar so that I could play my own creations, or improvise with a band.
In my college years, I lived in Switzerland, studying the hotel business. During my off days, I would take my guitar out into the town, and play for extra money. It was a great experience, and a way to meet a lot of different people from around the world!
Ok...enough of the biography. When I got back to the states, I decided the hotel business was not for me, and went in search of my calling. I started going to the community college, and discovered I wanted to become a music teacher! I was working full time in sales, selling telephone systems to businesses, and going to school at night. I learned the art of public speaking, and giving presentations. I gained teaching experience through giving sales training seminars, and through teaching martial arts. (I was a 2nd degree Black Belt of Aikido at the time)
As the years past, I joined the contemporary praise and worship band at my church, which allowed me to play in a band in front of an audience. I was also recruited into a local band called Covenant, formed by a couple of people from my church. Over 10 years, we toured and we recorded 2 Cd's and a live video concert!
I was still in the career of Telecommunications sales, but then the bottom dropped out of the economy, and I got layed off for the 3rd time in 2 years. So, I decided to change my career direction. I opened up my teaching practice full time, and developed a special curriculum that can be tailored to fit the individual students' personal goals, and learning ability! I've been teaching for over 16 years now, and specifically music for almost 5 years. I've taught beginners, intermediates, and advanced students from the ages of 7 to 65. My favorite students are the ones that have the desire to play. and dedication to practice.

Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. I'm Andrew. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 8 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stopped. The second I started learning I knew that that was what I wanted to do. Fast forward to now, and here I am loving every minute of it. I took lessons of my own as a kid, which helped shape me greatly. I then picked up bass at the age of 13.
Ive taught personalized lessons for over 4 1/2 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". Ive played South By South West, Westheimer Block Party, opened up for bands like the Misfits and Rage Against the Machine, shared the stage with bands like Minus the Bear and Echo and the Bunnymen, and been on tour and lived the whole life more often than not!
YOU can be an active musician. If you have the passion and desire. The first step though, is learning your instrument. Learning an instrument is something that stays with you for the rest of your life. It's an unfaltering companion that can benefit you in so many ways. I like to toss out the strict "teacher/student" regiment and create a laid back, fun, easy going atmosphere. I want to be buds and SHARE music with each other and introduce you into this world that I have grown to love so so much. There is nothing more rewarding. I promise. So let's get started!
