Overview

My name is Edward and I have been playing music most of my life. I was involved in every form of music education that I could find, and took private lessons on guitar and piano for ten years. During this time, I learned that I improved when I performed music that I liked. I attended the College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY and received a B.S. in Studio Music in 1996. I then moved to San Diego, CA and started my own business teaching music. The lessons were taught at the students' homes and I incorporated the students' interests in teaching. I have also performed for many years and have written many songs that have been recorded and performed.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method is unique; I never teach the same way for everyone. The main objectives I teach include performance, reading, ear training, theory, composition and improvisation. I find that playing examples of music that you like is the best way to improve skills. I will recommend books that best suit your style and level. The main styles include (but not limited to) rock, blues, classical, pop, jazz and country. Please contact me if you have any other questions about my teaching methods.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Yamaha 88 key weighted action digital piano with recording features. I also have music stands and amps for guitars. We have a smoke and pet free home. I also have a large collection of sheet music and music books available for lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will travel to your home. Clark County, NV

*** Specialties ***
Music, Guitar, Piano, Electric Bass
Sight reading, ear training and songwriting

As an adult, time to practice is a luxury. I really like that the practice pieces are music that I like and are challenging enough for me to enjoy the time spent. Also, he takes time to answer my questions thoroughly, so that I actually feel like I am learning. He is patient and isn't hard on me when I make mistakes. I have started lessons a couple of times, without success. I believe Edward, by far has the best technique and teaching style, for me to enjoy this learning experience.

Edward is wonderful

He teaches with variety.
He is very patient and doesn't make me feel embarrassed for mistakes or being slow with playing. Learning to read is hard but he makes it very possible and I would recommend him to everyone and anyone he teaches all ages ! I love him !
Thank you Edward.

Exceptional piano teacher

I am an older student and I was very self conscious and nervous. Edward makes me feel welcome and is patient and extremely helpful to me in making me feel comfortable playing the piano. I have learned more from him than any other piano teacher I have ever had. It is a joy to come to my lessons and learn from Edward. He is knowledgeable and is teaching me more advanced piano. I am so glad to be working with Edward and playing piano again and enjoying it. Thank you Edward!

Nice and professional

Edward has been very professional and a very good teacher for my 7 year old son, who started little over an year ago. We never had any problems with the timings or other issues. Ourselves never been into music, it is hard to judge a music teacher, but as of now we have been very satisfied with our son's progress.

Experienced, Professional Musician, Excellent Teacher

Edward Is very positive and upbeat musician/teacher. As I am not a beginner but rather an intermediate student, I go to Edward for more specific insight and help with issues or problems I am trying to work on to get my playing ability up to my goals.
He is very patient, He listens to me and understands the areas of my playing that I am trying to improve. He then shows me not only what to work on, but how to work on things.
He is very friendly and easy to talk to and to learn from.
One very important aspect about Edward is that he also teaches Electric Bass and Guitar.
He is experienced in playing in a band and with other musicians and brings that knowledge through in my lessons. This is very important to me. Especiallyif you enjoy playing in a band like I do.

Wonderful!

Edward is everything I could want in a music teacher for my 7 year old. He is PATIENT (thats a biggy), easy-going, he worked at my son's pace, created goals, he is knowledgeable/experienced, flexible, prepared for lessons so time is used wisely, he explored different modes of teaching/learning (reading music, playing music, watching music being played, listening to music be played), he asked for feedback from my son to gauge how he felt about doing certain things or how he would like to move forward, he is professional, invites communication, and makes learning fun. I am sure I am forgetting to mention things. I have no doubt whatsoever that if Edward can teach my young son to play the guitar, he is capable of teaching people at any age to play as well. Nothing but a great experience over all and highly recommended!

Great learning experience

I never really learned how to play the paino prior to these lessons. With Edward, I feel he uses great methods of motivating his students such as playing songs that they like, in order for them to succeed in learning how to play musical instruments. Not all teachers have enough patience to making a learning experience fun and effective
