About Me

Hi! I have been teaching for over seven years and am no stranger to the stage. While majoring in music performance at the University of West Georgia, I performed with jazz ensembles, guitar quartets, and percussion ensembles. I also performed many solo classical guitar recitals. The only thing I love more than performing, is teaching and sharing music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons generally include three parts with content depending on your level of experience: technique, repertoire, and theory. I am an enthusiastic although laid back teacher, however I do push my students in order for them to realize themselves as a musician. I like to have fun with lessons because music is fun and I enjoy it. I hope you do too!

Martin D. Clearwater, FL

Subjects Taught

Banjo, Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Guitar, Music Theory, Piano

About Me

I've been teaching professionally for over ten years and have taught over 200 students of all ages and backgrounds how to play. I've played mostly in rock bands but have also done Classical, Jazz, and Country projects. I play a wide selection of styles including Rock, Pop, Country, Ragtime, Folk, Blues, Bluegrass, Metal, Church, Renaissance, Punk, and Funk/Soul. (Everything from Bach to Rock to Bachrach). I graduated from the University of Maryland and Excelsior College.

*** Lesson Details ***
I listen closely to the student's wants and together we develop the approach that will help them reach their goals. I use a wide variety of methods from strict classical methods (such as Noad or Parkening) to simply teaching chords and "tabbing out" their favorite songs. However, I do make sure the student understands underlying theory and becomes a musician not a parrot. Each student has different strengths and weaknesses (cognitive and physical) and different amounts of time to practice. I take all of these into account in developing your individual lesson plan.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate studio room, hundreds of music books, 3 chairs, guitars, amps, and bass, keyboard and piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have own instrument and amp. I bring books and handouts.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar and Bass: Beg. to Advanced

banjo and piano: Beg. - intermediate

All Styles (except Flamenco) to include Folk, Acoustic Fingerstyle, Rock, Punk, Blues, Country, Church, Bluegrass, Soul, Ragtime and Classical.
