About Me

I have been playing guitar for 7 years. I previously studied music at Broward College and have pursued music independently under the private mentorship and have attended music education seminars around the country. I've had the opportunity of taking private lessons and Master classes with virtuosic musicians such as, Stanley Jordan, Mike Moreno (New School of Music, NY) Jake Cinninger, Brendan Bayliss, Ryan Stasik, Joel Cummins (Umphrey's McGee) and Devin Arne as well as the rest of the staff at Broward College.

I currently play as a studio guitarist for a recording studio located in Broward. I also work as a guitarist for hire, playing mostly for many different Top 40's bands and other projects. 

Aside from working steadily as a studio guitarist and performer, I also teach at Shad Music - a small private school dedicated to music located in Cooper City. Here I teach beginner piano, drums and guitar with a dedicated approach to learning not just the instrument, but music theory as well. All tailored for the age of the student and at their own pace/desire.

I'm a very out going young man and have had many amazing experiences and adventures through pursuing music. I've traveled and toured the West Coast and have attended enriching music camps held in the Catskills of New York. I want to share the amazing privilege that is undertaking music with you. With hard work and dedication, your own adventure will unfold. It all starts with taking the first step towards action!

*** Lesson Details ***
On our first lesson, I will sit down with you and figure out just what exactly you're looking to gain through taking lessons. Different students will have different needs and I like to tailor a lesson plan together for each one accordingly. Whether you're a beginner who is just eager to get started without a sense of direction or an intermediate who wants to take their abilities to the next level. Perhaps you're interested in music just as a hobby and want to learn to play your favorite songs. I will compile a unique lesson plan for each students needs and wants. After a few months, you will start to see the fruit of your efforts unfold.

I give special focus to developing proper technique, economizing your time and energy, time feel and improving your recognition of things you've already heard before ( ear training/melodic dictation).

Genre's I specialize in are rock, acoustic, blues, funk and impromptu jamming.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio: teacher guitar, music stands, practice amps, additional seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to have their own instrument. I teach using either my own personalized material, one of the Hal Leonard books I teach from or a book of their choosing. In some cases more than one of the aforementioned.

*** Specialties ***
I give heavy attention to rhythmic awareness through a method taught to me by my music mentor, Brett Segal. Focus's on being able to visualize any possible rhythmic figure through an explicit and straight forward approach; leaving behind no guess work. I have these methods in print and use them regularly in my own private lessons.

I also give heavy attention to improving technique and economizing physical energy exerted by the musician to his/her instrument; all while learning at a comfortable pace that I develop through the first few weeks of lessons with new students. Each student I have taught in the past, and currently teach, has their own personalized lesson that we discover together.

Erik A. Miami Beach, FL

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Piano, Songwriting

About Me

I want to teach you how to express yourself through music. I've been inspired by music since I was young and have been involved in one way or another since I started piano lessons at age 3. I've been playing guitar for over fifteen years and written and recorded music for about eight. Whether you want to go into music seriously as I have, or just use music as a hobby and way to express yourself, I want to help you accomplish your goal.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each person is different and learns in a slightly different way. Having said that, there are certain essentials which must not be ignored. If you've never taken lessons before, we'll start with the fundamentals, how to hold the guitar properly, make chords, build up finger strength, properly tune the guitar, know all the strings, and most importantly play songs. You will learn how to read basic music, but I can teach you how to play by ear too. Before we have completed our series you or your children will have basic knowledge of all these things and a desire to explore at least some of these aspects further.

For me, the most interesting music reveals the unique perspective and feelings of the person who makes it. Having conquered the essentials I will encourage you to be creative with your developing talents. I can teach you about song structure and I can teach you how to jam with your friends. If you are interested in writing and composing, I can help you with that too. We can take a look at your favorite artists and try to discover how they accomplished and perfected their sound. If you want to learn how to record I have a computer equipped with Pro Tools and would be glad to show you how to use it.

You'll spend time listening to me of course, but I hope to spend much of my time listening to you as well. If reading music doesn't inspire you we can focus more on learning by ear. It's up to you. You'll need your own instrument obviously, though you can leave it at home if you don't want to carry it back and forth. I have guitars here. I request that you purchase a book with text and exercises so that you can practice and study what you learn in the class. Even if you do not want to read music, you will need to know the neck and conquer scale formations and chords. We can choose the text based on your needs.

About Me

“Pablo is a certified TakeLessons instructor specializing in beginner to intermediate guitar, bass, and banjo students, offering lessons in genres that range from funk, reggae, jazz, hip-hop, blues, rock and more!”

ABOUT PABLO:
Having completed my B.A. at Florida International University with an English Major and Education Minor, specializing in early education and elementary music instruction, I have spent time in the last couple years working with younger students and studying instructional techniques for reaching younger ages as well as students with special needs. However, I still feel equally comfortable teaching both children, teenagers, and adults with a fun and personalized approach to learning music and mastering instruments.

Throughout my lessons, I also offer helpful insights into the challenges and benefits of today's rapidly growing community of local musicians by providing my students with useful insights that can help to refine their musical ambition and overall goals while also identifying and addressing any factors that may present an issue in their long-term music goals and ventures. As a member of several local bands, I'm eager to offer a very useful insight into the social dynamics within a band and a better understanding of the elements that are conducive to healthy and long-standing friendships amongst band members.

The first instrument I learned formally was piano and after realizing that my interests weren't in line with the music styles in the lessons assigned to me, I eventually switched to guitar and began applying the basic musical concepts I previously learned on piano. Having endured the common frustration of being taught music that didn't match my interests, I've come to value the importance of a customized learning experience that effectively bridges the songs and styles that students are excited to learn with the fundamentals required to attain the goal of becoming a well-rounded musician.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every music student must first encounter a period of learning where the amount of dry information they're absorbing tends to out-weight the amount of entertainment they gain from its practical application. The ideal goal is to instill students with enough energy and determination to endure through that initial period and onto greater and far more entertaining assignments that apply the previously established fundamentals of music while advancing toward composition and performance. While not every assignment can be as fun as playing a great song, it's still important to learn music while always making strides toward playing a favorite song or melody.

Through the careful assessment of my students' interests and objectives, my friendly and laid-back teaching style assures students that personal enjoyment is a prominent and attainable part of the learning process. By presenting creative and unique ways of incorporating useful knowledge and technique with entertaining music, I motivate students to continue exploring music well past the initial instruction stage.

My guitar lessons typically focus on elements that may apply but are not limited to funk, reggae, jazz, hip-hop, blues, and rock. Students will learn to master the essentials of basic chords in 'root position' while also learning simple melodies on one or two strings. Additional lessons explore diverse chord voicing, dynamics with distortion and other effects, blues progression theory & improvisation, performance essentials, useful tips on music equipment, key elements of song composition, blues and rock lead guitar styles, speed and dexterity exercises, reading tablature and chord charts, and alternate tuning techniques.

*** Studio Equipment ***
While at my home studio, I can provide use of amplifiers, an upright piano, keyboards, electric & acoustic guitars, electric & acoustic bass (not upright), banjo, and wireless internet access.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When traveling to a student, I can provide an amplifier, keyboard, guitar, bass, or banjo if necessary but students are expected to eventually have their own instruments.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers marked as a Student

I specialize in teaching beginner to intermediate students how to read chord charts and TAB sheet music for guitar, bass, and banjo while exploring how to play using various types of guitar chords (such as power chords, barre chords, open chords), incorporating distortion and other effects, playing with a guitar pick, playing the blues, improvising melodies, making up your own songs, picking with your fingers, and experimenting with alternate string tuning that actually make the guitar easier to play!

About Me

Music has been a part of my life for over 4 decades. I stepped onstage when I was 15, and have been active in the music business ever since. I was raised in the New York / New England area, and played in many bands in the 70's and 80's, most notably the band AVALON. I moved to Florida in the late 80's and began to develop a one man show, using the emerging technology available. I called the show YIN YANG, the infinite possibility of Music. I chose the name, as it is the Oriental symbol for balance, and used it to represent the balance between the electric and acoustic, and the technology of today with the classic music from yesterday. Midi guitar and guitar synthesis became my trademarks as I pushed the boundaries of how I could express myself on the guitar. Being able to play sax, flute, strings, pianos, even percussion on the guitar took my imagination to new places and enabled me to express myself in ways I didn't know were possible. I grew up influenced by the classic rock guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Alvin Lee, Duane Allman, and used their techniques to springboard me into developing my style. I am also influenced by some of the great guitarists of today, such as Satriani, Vai, Bonamassa, etc. I am fluent in electric and acoustic guitar, slide guitar, open tunings, modal playing, and guitar synthesis. I also can play and teach mandolin, ukulele, banjo, bass, and also harmonica and folk harp. I am working on the bagpipes now. I also give lessons on music technology, audio recording, and music software such as Sonar, Reason, and Finale, to name a few. Music is the passion that feeds my soul, and a decade ago I started teaching, to have a chance to give back to the next generation and share what I have learned along the way. I love bringing out the soul of each new student I meet.

*** Lesson Details ***
When I take on a new student, the first thing I do is to sit down and talk to them and find out a bit about them... their personality, what their influences in music are, what artists they like, and what they are looking to be able to accomplish on the instrument. Each student is an individual, so depending on what they like, I will frame my lessons around the styles and artists that they like, and will incorporate the fundamentals and the exercises around the music that they enjoy. I will use the artists and the songs that excite my students to frame the lessons that we work on. I use music software to create custom grooves for each of my students to practice to, and also sometimes use a video cam to film my student working on a particular lesson that they are having trouble with, so that when they go home, they have an example of themselves playing the lesson, so they can study it at home to get it right. I am a firm believer in learning all the rules. I am also a firm believer, when you know the rules, to break them all. You have to know the rules to be able to break them. I will provide you with everything you need to shine on your instrument. My teaching technique is something that I developed myself, is quite unique, and, if you follow my program, you will progress REALLY fast. But keep in mind, anything good is worth working for, and if you REALLY want this, you will grow in leaps and bounds. Most of my students have been with me on an average of 4 to 5 years, some 9 or 10 years. I look forward to meeting you and helping you make magic with music! Ciao!

*** Specialties ***
I have developed a curriculum that combines my knowledge of music software with my teaching technique. This enables me to create musical templates tailored for each student according to their musical interests, what they would like to focus on, and what their ultimate goals are. For example ...lead guitar, rhythm guitar, acoustic guitar accompaniment to their voice, etc. which ends up making for an exciting experience as my student learns their instrument framed around the styles of music that they enjoy.
