About Me

I have 15 years of guitar playing experience studying jazz composition and classical guitar composition with Grammy nominated recording artists as well as a brief stint with the University of Miami Youth Guitar Orchestra. In addition to my guitar and bass playing skills, I am an experienced music producer who holds a certificate of completion as an Electronic Music Producer at the SAE Audio Engineering Institute in North Miami Beach, FL.

Currently, I am an active recording, writing, and producing musician within the South Florida area in various bands and other production projects as well as providing lessons to students throughout the South Florida area.

*** Lesson Details ***
Student's can expect a very laid back and relaxed disposition from my self as I try to focus on my student's specific goals and aspirations. The curriculum is dependent on the student's specific needs but we will always initially focus on technique, articulation, and basic music theory (depending on one's level) as to help bridge the gap between learning the technique of playing the instrument and knowing what to do with that technique. Other focal points of my lessons include: Different styles/genres of music (Rock, Jazz, Country), notational/site reading skills, and more. Once a base is set and these particular skills continued to be honed it sets the groundwork and base where they can improve upon their technique and performance skills at their own rate. Taking guitar lessons with me, we will try and cover all of these aspects of playing to ultimately to help you achieve the goal of being the guitar/bass player YOU want to be.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons take place in a separate room which has been converted into a music studio including 3 amps, several types of guitars, two basses and a computer work station.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring an acoustic guitar with me, or my electric guitar or bass and play it out of my iPhone's amp simulator application. Student's would be required to provide their own instrument for lessons taken at their home. Though I do have an acoustic guitar I could lend you for my in studio lessons, I would prefer for you to please bring your own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I listen to a wide range of music and feel anyone that wants to play music should try to as well, as to establish a wide palate of inspiration where they can draw upon it and apply it to their own work in progress. In addition to my guitar and bass playing, I'm an experienced music producer who holds a certificate of completion as an Electronic Music Producer at the SAE Audio Engineering Institute in North Miami Beach, FL. Currently I am an active recording, writing, and producing musician playing guitar and bass within the South Florida area in various bands while keeping busy with other production projects and providing lessons to the south Florida area.

About Me

Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir and then developed into piano and music theory. At the age of 12 I began to learn classical guitar, and at 15 took on various styles like Flamenco, Jazz and Rock. I graduated from High School having played in the school band achieving recognition In national Institutions Like IAJE (International Association for Jazz Education) and state band finals. I was also composing from a very early age, and at 18 released my first album (self-titled) which can still be heard and purchased today through various music outlets, since i have released over 15 albums with various ensembles and bands. In college I already knew from my previous experience that I wanted to teach and pass on the joy that music brought to my life. I studied Music Theory and Jazz and finished my degree in Music Education. I have been teaching all in all for about 14 yrs. And I have enjoyed every minute I have spent with my students learning as much from them, as them from me. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us music aficionados! and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method ranges depending on the student. I believe in my experience that everyone learns differently, therefore everyone develops at their own pace. I try to find key strengths in each student and expose this to their advantage, using their abilities to further develop their skills, this method has shown the most promising results and students usually find themselves playing and performing just a couple of months after their first lessons. Part of my method involves a lot of performance and recital opportunities to help break any fears and inhibitions a student may bring with them. Music is about sharing, so an early exposure to this method helps to strengthen and stabilize a core acceptance of a students style and path, giving them and those close to them a very clear picture of their development and achievements.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Has all instruments at both his home and college studio

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson material, song charts and a progression scale. I require student to have an Instrument and recommended technique literature.

*** Specialties ***
My classical training began in High School with Influences in Segovia, and Romero I studied classical for 4 yrs. and trained in Jazz and Improvisation with performances In Big Band and group ensemble. Also sang and played in the school gospel choir.
