About Me

Hello, My name is Cort and I love to teach music. I am currently taking on more students for the following instruments: Guitar, Drums, Bass. I have successfully instructed students from age 5 - 65 and gain tremendous satisfaction from helping my students achieve their goals of learning an instrument and/or progressing to a greater ability on their instrument. I teach beginning and intermediate up to the advanced level and all aspects of music (reading, writing, theory, chords, scales, modes, composition, and most styles of music). I have been playing and performing for over 25 years. I have an AA degree with a concentration in music education. I have studied privately with legendary jazz/fusion drummer, composer, and actor Alphonse Mouzon (drum set) and with guitar genius Julian Coryell (son of legendary jazz guitarist Larry Coryell). I have a teaching history of over 15 years and I would love the opportunity to share my knowledge with you and help you to become the best musician that you can be!

*** Lesson Details ***
I take an academic approach to teaching while keeping it fun! We will work on all aspects of music like reading, writing, theory, chords, scales, ear training, rudiments, and most styles of music. I will structure lessons to coincide with my students interests, needs and abilities, from the beginner up to the advanced musician. I teach from a variety of sources to keep things interesting and have seen many of my students progress to an advanced level of musicianship which gives me great satisfaction!

About Me

"Music is the best!" --Frank Zappa

That is the only thing I can claim to know for certain.

My ideals as a teacher are sound control, fun, and community. I teach all of my students how to play their instrument in a manner which they understand and enjoy. I demonstrate how much fun music can be once my student has the facility to create sound freely. And I inspire them to use this gift for bringing people closer together.

Since beginning my musical studies at California State University Northridge, I have been working as a musician in the greater Los Angeles area. Now over a decade later, I continue to perform and teach - enjoying the whole ride wherever it takes me. While my primary instruments are Contrabass and Electric Bass Guitar, I have technical know how on a wide variety of instruments. Some of these include the violin, guitar, and piano.

I'm also happy to teach students who already have technical facility are interested in learning about things like musicality, melodic phrasing, harmonic analysis, rhythmic accuracy, ear training, reading in various clefs, improvisation, and much more.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring whatever I need to a lesson, but I expect all of my students to take the initiative to have all necessary equipment for playing. That being said, if a problem ever arises in the procuring of this equipment, I am always happy to help in anyway that I can.

About Me

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile!

I love to share my knowledge of music with other people. At UCLA I taught and performed for children of all ages in Los Angeles and around the world.

Teaching is important to me because I feel that music is all about connecting with others. It is also about so many other things: self expression, communication, and lifelong learning. Also, it's just plain fun. I want my students to enjoy learning as much as they do playing!

In our lessons we'll focus on learning how to play the music that you want to learn! And along the way we'll work on fundamentals that will allow you to branch out into other genres, too.

Music is my favorite thing in the world, and I want it to be yours too! It can change your life!

About Me

My goal is to help you bring out your personal musical voice. I think learning an instrument is fun and rewarding, and I want to give you a positive experience where you can succeed and enjoy playing music.

Many of my students have gone to study music in college- but I have the belief that everybody should experience making music. I'm committed to helping my students reach personal goals by creating a fun and friendly environment for learning.

I have degrees in music performance and education from San Francisco Conservatory of Music, UCLA, and CSUN. My private teachers have been leading members of professional orchestras and top level studio freelancers.
