Subjects Taught Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting
I began my musical training at the age of 5yrs on the piano. I had the fortune to teach piano to my fellow students in the sixth grade through our music class. At the age of 13 I began lessons for playing drums. I played those for six years. during that time I picked up playing guitar. My background in music gave me the ability to teach myself. In tenth grade I was an assistant to the music instructors of several Jr high schools through the teachers aid program. This was in 1970-72. I began playing live at the age of 19 in talent contests as well a paying gigs in pubs. In this time frame i.e. 2013 I am playing solo gigs and sometimes with a band. I have written songs as well as formed my own arrangements. Nevertheless, in the area of teaching I was a chief instructor for my own Karate school for some time. I have begun to focus more on teaching music since I have retired from the martial arts. That stated I have experience with working with kids and adults from age 5 to 50.
