About Me

I have been involved in music all of my life. As a child I played trumpet in band and sang in school and church choirs. My favorite movies were musicals and they still are my favorite. Music was my major in college, which included singing, dancing, acting and playing musical instruments. I like all types of music. As a school teacher, I taught 3rd. grade through high school, everything from band and choir to musical theater. I also taught private students, of all ages, piano, guitar, voice and most of the wind instruments.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students can expect to learn the basics of music theory, such as melody, harmony, key signature and rhythm. I want my students to have fun by learning the kind of music they like best while learning to appreciate the kind of music that will develop their musical skills. Piano books like John Schaum and guitar books like Mel Bay's Guitar Method are good books to learn to read music and learn the proper way to play your instrument. Scale exercises are important for instrumental, as well as, vocal students. I use a practice log and CD-DVD recordings of my students so they can see and hear their progress. At the end of 6 months I want my students to play their favorite songs in 3 different keys. C, G and F Major.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Designated music room: Two keyboards, guitars, sound equipment, PA system, computers, seating for parents (he encourages it!)

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students need their own inst. I have one of every inst. to demo. except piano and guitar which I have 2 of each.

*** Specialties ***
Open-minded to all music. I specialize in performance. I help my students with their look, as well as, their sound. I know how to bring out the best in my students.

Trey X Petaluma, CA

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Music Recording, Music Theory, Songwriting

About Me

My passion for music has led me clear across the country, from Boston to the San Francisco Bay Area. I have played guitar for 17 years, in various bands of many different genres, and have attended music schools on both coasts to fortify my musical knowledge. I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston and then graduated from Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park. My specialties are in rock and metal guitar, and also in composition and music theory.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is centered around the individual learning styles of the student, rather than the imposition of an impersonal broad curriculum. You may find me to be laid back, but I expect my students to be dedicated and to practice the material so that we can progress together. I find that beginners especially will be more inclined to stick with their instrument when they are playing music that they like, and will also be more inclined to explore some more traditional sources like written music, etudes, jazz stuff, etc. Therefore I always begin by asking what YOU want to learn and what YOU would like to play, and then build a curriculum around that.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Pro Tools

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring chord stamps, a laptop to print out music, and my guitar. I expect that the student will provide a notebook, music/tab paper, songs they wish to learn, their instrument, and a willingness to practice!

*** Specialties ***
I have studied jazz guitar and some classical but my specialties are rock and metal guitar, as well as songwriting, composition, and music theory. I can teach beginner drums and up through intermediate bass guitar.

Subjects Taught

About Me

My first musical memories are jamming with his father Robert (who plays guitar) in a make-shift garage music room in his hometown of San Diego. I soon discovered a love of and fascination with drumming that led me to pursue music as a lifelong passion.

In 2001 I received a B.A. in music from San Diego State University, where I studied classical theory, sang in choirs, took every jazz course available, and played in West African/South Indian drumming ensembles.

*** Lesson Details ***
I've decided to settle down and have made Sonoma my home. I feels blessed to be teaching and learning from students. I strive to share my knowledge and experience in a positive, exciting way, inspiring creativity, individuality and self-discipline.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The home studio is a room separate from rest of house, drum set, electronic drum set, electrical guitar, digital piano, and seating for parents. Parking is available in a dirt driveway.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should have their own instrument, I will sometimes bring a guitar to drum lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Soul, Rock, Pop, Blues, Latin, Funk and 80's.
