*** Lesson Details ***
I have classical and jazz training as well as extensive real world experience in the pop, indie-rock, RnB, and commercial music scenes. I take my professional training and incorporate my real-world experiences on 4 continentes, over 15 years, to give you the best most hands on learning experience I can. I understand that we each have our own ways of learning and I start early on in our lessons forming the best possible track for you. Whether you are a beginner seeking fundamental knowledge of the instrument or theory behind the music or a seasoned pro looking for new approaches, I can help facilitate this. I am laid back but direct and highly efficient with my time. You can expect to learn the history of the instrument and all it various applications in different styles of music found from around the world. You will learn how to navigate your way around the instrument as well as develop strengthening exercises to increase agility and dexterity. Theory, extended technique, recording concepts, and production of parts will be covered thoroughly. I will teach you to think for yourself and to be critical with your part creations whether you are just starting up a garage band, participating in a small jazz combo, performing in a pit orchestra, or touring with a band around the country. I will provide alternative solutions to antiquated teachings and provide you with a very "current" approach to your craft. In addition, music business, production, composition, arranging, and basic piano can also be taught.
