About Me

Every musician was first and foremost a fan of music. My love of
music began when my mother took me to a performance of Beethoven's
fifth symphony when, coincidentally, I was five. From that point, I
started fervently listening to my mother's records (those are the
huge, black monstrosities that people in the pre-historic used in
place of iPods), followed closely by my father's CD collection.
After a while, this ravenous desire of to know and feel music moved
me to play an instrument. After a couple of false starts with the
drums and violin, I found my true musical calling: the guitar.

On January 25th 1995, on a whim, I began playing the
guitar, and I have yet to put it down. Along the way I've picked up
a number of friends for my guitar, including the bass, the lute, the
sitar and, once again, the drums. After only a few years of
practice, I started playing professionally, in bands and solo guitar.
Live playing experience, I believe, is the most important experience
that any musician can have, in that, the most important part of music
is how it sounds, and playing in front of people is the quickest way
to learn how to play effectively. And this is what I teach; how to
be a musician, not just a technician.

*** Lesson Details ***
A student can expect a curriculum tailor-made to their needs and personality. Every person learns differently and this is an important distinction in my teaching style. Some students need a strong hand to keep them working, others need to find many different ways to the same conclusion to keep them focused, while still others need a laid-back friend in order to accept knowledge.

I stress rhythmic literacy, for, as my jazz teacher always said, "rhythm is king." If composition is important to you, then we'll focus on music theory, but if you're just wanting to learn how to play some fun rock tunes with your friends on the weekends, we can do that as well. As I stated before, we'll get you playing in front of people in no time.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide an amplifier, a loner guitar (if needed), staff and/or tablature paper, metronome, pens and paper for the lessons.

About Me

I have been tutoring and teaching for twenty years for private students as well as at academic institutions (University of Arizona, Southern Mississippi, Phoenix, Capella, and Pima and Gulf Coast Community Colleges. In sessions, I find out what the student really needs and help them achieve realistic goals through thorough evaluation, pacing and persistent challenge. No matter what level of achievement is desired, I customize a lesson plan and learning regimen and guide the student to cross transformational thresholds. I look for and draw out the potential in students and help them achieve the competency they need to be independent learners and succeed in their endeavors professionally and personally.

About Me

I am a recent graduate of Goucher College. I am a new graduate interested in tutoring, and I can offer quite a few different services.

The main services I offer is as an acting coach. This can range from working through a scene to building monologue material for an audition. I also have experience with musical theatre, and I can help you figure out a great repertoire for an audition. (PS: I don't play piano and I am NOT a music teacher, but I know about auditions, and I can help figure out material)

The other services that I offer include beginning lessons in German (I've been to Germany and I've taken the language for years). I also offer make-up services for anyone who wants it.

Just contact me and let me know what you're looking to learn from me, and we can get started right away.
