I started my musical education in a children's choir at age 6. When I turned 8 years old, I began piano lessons. I started violin at 9 and trombone at 10. I am now proficient on the guitar, bass, and piano. Having completed my tour of duty in the U.S. Army, I am currently on the Dean's list as a music/audio production major, and plan to continue my music education until I earn at least a masters in performance and composition. I started my teaching career at Milestones in Music, a local studio, as an independent contractor, where i was able to gain valuable experience and fine tune my curriculum. I am a member of the Grammy U Recording Academy, and have had opportunities to work with a lot of different musicians. (The Recording Academy is the organization that created the most ...

I have also been teaching for the past 11 years all over the Philadelphia area. i teach from a method I derived myself from years of learning both in and out of school. I think teaching music is both aural as well as visual and encourage students to listen to music a lot. most of all i feel that music is fun and the students should enjoy learning so i incorporate their favorite ...

Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high school. Transferring the knowledge and finger technique to the guitar came easy because of the similarities between guitar and the bass. And growing up with an upright piano in the house always lead to tinkering and eventually became a proficiency after college. In 1996 Michael enrolled at the the Philadelphia University of the Arts. He was awarded a presidential merit scholarship and a university grant based on his entrance audition. During his studies Michael was recruited for a student ...
Focus on developing strong fundamentals of technique and reading while exploring different styles of music.
I earned my master’s degree in jazz studies from The University of the Arts. As adjunct professor of music at Lebanon Valley College, I teach double bass, bass guitar, jazz improvisation, and directs small-group jazz combos. Working with students of all ages, I also teach workshops, clinics, and master classes at high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools in Pennsylvania and Maryland, as well as keeping a private teaching studio out of my Bucks County home.

Some of my students have been accepted to various regional orchestras and jazz bands, and I'm ...
I have been playing bass for 26 years, and teaching for the last 17 years. Throughout my years of teaching my goal has been to keep lessons fun and geared toward the student's goals. However, there are just some basic requirements every bassist needs to learn, and I try to make sure each lesson provides something substantive to assist in achieving that student's goals. For my more advanced students I enjoy focusing on theory, and advanced slap technique.
I have a BA in music performance from Skidmore College, and a JD from Temple University. I have been teaching drums, guitar, bass and piano full time since 2002 (part time since 1996) and have a local roster of 45 students a week - ages 8-65. I perform regularly, write and record my own music, and do session work from time to time. I'm friendly and easy going and have years of practical experience and wisdom to impart. Most of my students continue with me for 3-6+ years. With my 3 year old starting daycare a few days a week I have even more time to devote to teaching.
