About Me

I have been studying the guitar and bass for the last 30 years. While I studied music in college, I began to teach the guitar. After I completed my associates degree at Fullerton college in southern California, I went on to study and get my B.A. degree from Eugene Lang College, The New School for Social Research in New York City. I have always performed with music groups and ensembles - right now I play in flamenco duet, Two jazz groups and a blues band. I love to teach music and enjoy passing on the craft to those who enjoy music as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
When I first start with a student, I begin with building up their finger strength. Next I get the student involved with learning chords and scales. Then I get the student involved with learning songs, if the student has a certain musical artist they want to learn, the better. I am a very patient teacher especially if there is any learning disability. In a short time you will be playing the guitar or bass and will be able to entertain others with your new gift of music.

About Me

Hi there! My name is Chris and I've been playing music my entire life and I believe that with the right attitude and environment anyone can achieve musical greatness!

I was born into a musical family and have studied classical piano since I was 4 years old! I am very well versed in music theory and proper technique, with an emphasis on avoiding player's injuries, as well as a great knowledge of classical Pieces for any skill level.

Alas!

As a young teenager I grew rebellious and learned how to play the electric guitar and have since sought teachers outside my family to learn modern styles and 5 other instruments!! I have also worked toward a music degree and have made music the center of my life.

Classical music is not everyone's passion but a good practice routine, attitude and environment is always a good thing to have as these things are important regardless of your favorite music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are held with a fun and relaxed attitude. Learning music should always be enjoyable and a good attitude and love for music is cultured and encouraged.

Lessons are structured just like a practice session should be. We will begin with a warm-up exercise designed to acquaint you with the proper technique to meet your personal musical goals. the next activities are highly personalized, but is usually something like reading music or a music theory game. These activities are things that are good for you but may not be your favorite part of learning music. They will, however, go a long way toward your better understanding of how your favorite music is structured.

Examples could be learning about 12 bar blues, common strum patterns (for guitar), scales, sight-reading, or music analysis.

We will spend the rest of class learning and practicing an activity of your choice. This is usually a song but can be anything you wish to improve upon. this is usually a long-term goal of yours. *I've always wanted to learn......*

By structuring our lessons the same as how you will practice, and by keeping good notes, it will be easy for you to take on practice at home and achieve all of your musical goals!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have their own guitar/piano/keyboard etc. Guitar/violin students should also have a music stand and tuner to keep at home. I will bring picks, spare tuner, music, and handouts.

*** Specialties ***
I primarily specialize in classical piano in styles such as Muzio Clementi and Frederic Chopin. I also play Bach and various Spanish classical guitar pieces. I have also extensively studied electric guitar in Blues such ZZ Top, Metal such as Metallica, and rock such as Led Zeppelin. I have also studied Irish and Celtic folk music for instruments such as Mandolin and Violin.

About Me

I am a guitarist, composer and teacher specializing in classical guitar and Latin American music. I have loved music for all of my life and my primary expression of that love is playing guitar. I currently teach private guitar lessons, lecture at San Bernardino Valley College and work as a freelance performer in the Inland Empire and greater Los Angeles area.

I began my study of music at the age of thirteen when I taught myself how to play folk, rock and blues guitar. Though, to be honest, I didn't just teach myself. I had many friends who played guitar who would show me songs or correct mistakes in the songs I had learned from the internet. I remember thinking that music had a special ability to bring people together, and I became determined to understand what exactly it was that gave music that power. I began my formal study of music at Foothill College in Los Altos, California where I studied guitar, music appreciation and music theory. In 2002 I transferred to the University of California at Santa Cruz to pursue a Bachelors of Arts in Music.

I majored in classical guitar at the UC Santa Cruz, but I also pursued a variety of other musical interests including Balinese Gamelan, jazz improvisation and North Indian classical music. It was fascinating to learn how different cultures thought of music and how participating in music is so often linked with the formation of community. I also learned a lot about the history of Western music. I studied the lute and performed the works of Scarlatti, Bach and Handel with the UC Santa Cruz Early Music Consort. I also was a member of the UC Santa Cruz Contemporary Music Ensemble, a group which performed experimental contemporary music. I loved performing with all the different ensembles and becoming familiar with music from different times in history and different places in the world. In 2004, during my last year of college, I began working as a freelance guitar instructor in Santa Cruz.

In April of 2005 I graduated from UC Santa Cruz and moved to Los Angeles where I worked as a freelance performer and guitar teacher. I studied guitar with Dr. Emre Sabuncuoglu at the Los Angeles Guitar Academy and eventually became an associate instructor there. At that time, I was also teaching guitar, piano and songwriting at a studio called All Access Musician located in the San Fernando Valley.

In Fall of 2007 I began working towards my Masters of Music in Composition at the University of California at Riverside. While at Riverside, I studied and performed the music of the Peruvian Andes, early lute music and Brazilian choro. I had always loved Latin American music, but this was the first time I had been regularly performing it with large ensembles. The rhythm, the dance and the singing of Andean music captivated me in a way I never thought it could. I also began to recognize the rhythmic complexity of all Brazilian music at this time and became very interested in choro, samba and bossa nova.

During my time at UC Riverside I was awarded three fellowships from the Gluck Fellows Program, which allowed me to give free public concerts and lectures in schools, libraries and assisted living homes. It gave me great joy to see children in the community fascinated with the music I performed for them and actually being interested in hearing about 16th century Germany or the Peruvian Andes. After two wonderful and painstaking years, I received my Masters of Music in December of 2009.

Currently I work as a freelance classical guitarist for weddings, receptions and festivals. My classical guitar repertoire includes the works of J.S. Bach, Dionisio Aguado, Isaac Albéniz and Agustín Barrios Mangoré. I am a founding member of Kusisqa: The Riverside Andean Music Ensemble. We performed for hundreds of people at the San Bernardino Latin Music Festival. I also collaborate with many local musicians performing nueva cancion, jazz, classical music and original compositions.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that playing an instrument should be a source of joy in one's life. Playing music is one of the most enriching experiences life has to offer. Every single person on this Earth has the inherent skills necessary to play music, but learning how to express yourself with an instrument is no simple task. It requires a great deal of discipline, focus and intent to realize the music that you want to play. But fear not: YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Too often people think of music as something genetic, that you are either predisposed to be a good musician or you aren't. I know from personal experience that this is simply not true. All great musicians became great because they have the discipline, focus and intent to realize the music they want to play. My lessons are designed to give you the skills necessary to make the music YOU want to.

I recognize that every musician is an individual and I want to help you express your individuality through music. Everyone has their own style and tastes, especially when it comes to the music they like and want to make. Whether you're a little bit country or a little bit rock-and-roll (or classical, or emo, or metal, or grunge...) I can help you make the music you want to. I will help you establish your musical goals and set you on a path towards achieving them.

You also must realize that in order to achieve your musical goals, there are some important fundamentals you need to know. For instance, it is vital that a musician be able to physically manipulate their instrument efficiently and effortlessly. Other skills like knowing how to tune and care for your instrument, how to count rhythms and how to practice music are absolutely crucial for you to be successful in reaching your personal musical goals. My first goal as your teacher is to help you master these fundamentals so you have the skills to learn the music YOU want to.

I have taught literally hundreds of students of all ages over the past six years and my students have a very high success rate. Most of my students play in a recital within the first three months of lessons. All of my students who have been studying with me for more than six months have learned dozens of songs and many have begun performing at open mics, concerts and festivals.

Within the first month of lessons you will be able to play simple songs like Skip to My Lou, Amazing Grace or You Are My Sunshine. You will learn to read music notation, which will give you the ability to look-up and learn songs from the internet. By the second month of lessons you will have mastered the basics and progress to more advanced songs! By the third month you will have solid technique, strong music reading skills and you will start choose the songs you want to learn!

My advanced students, usually those who have been studying with me for six months or more, will choose songs they would like to work on. At this stage I often begin to cover special topics with my students depending on their particular musical interests. Some examples of special topics I've worked on with my students are music theory, ear training, harmony singing, composition, songwriting and preparation for the collegiate study of music.

About Me

I am primarily a composer, guitarist, tenor, pianist and percussionist and I love sharing what I have learned with others and watching my students develop and grow. My goal is to teach my students until they are better than me, so I hold no secrets, tricks or techniques back and I devote my time and energy to help others become the best musicians, artists and people they can be.I have a BA in music composition and a BA in music history, both from California State University, San Bernardino. I play the guitar, bass, piano, drums, orchestral percussion, mandolin, ukulele, banjo, recorder, harmonica and didgeridoo with varying levels of proficiency and have experience in music theory, songwriting, recording, MIDI, arranging, singing (contemporary, broadway and opera), and acting/performing. I have performed in The United States, Austria, Spain, Australia and New Zealand and have 13 years of experience, development, mistakes and successes to offer my students. I love learning new things and have been teaching as a profession since 2007. I am also First Aid & CPR certified, Live Scan fingerprinted, FBI background checked, Safe Environment trained and a Child Abuse Mandated Reporter.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do not use a set curriculum. I prefer to discuss goals and music with my students and their parents to determine what genres, styles and techniques they are most interested in. I then use techniques I have gained through experience along with songs and classical exercises to develop strong technique, a developed ear and the ability to read music. I do expect students to be disciplined, practice regularly, and be prepared for lessons, enabling them to expect the same from me. Whether a student wants to be a classical virtuosi or learn how to play a song they heard on the radio, I will keep the lessons fun and interesting for anyone willing to practice and learn, and I will always to my best to cater to the student's individual needs and goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide all copies of music, handouts, exercises, etc. Students are expected (when applicable) to have an instrument in good, working condition.

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
I form all of my lessons around being able to learn, memorize and play songs, read written musical notation (along with sight-reading & technical exercises), and improvisation (based on scales and exercises).

For guitar and it's relatives (bass, mandolin, ukulele, banjo) I can teach any style or genre of music, including modern tapping techniques, and I also teach TAB notation.

I teach both classical and popular piano, usually combining classical sight reading exercises while learning both classical and popular repertoire.

I have experience acting and singing on stage in both non-musical and musical productions, as well as five years of classical vocal experience singing in high school and collegiate ensembles. Being in these environments has equipped me with the tools and exercises to be able to teach everything from basic singing to fundamentals in broadway and opera.

I also have a small studio in my home where I write and record, providing me with the opportunity to also teach recording, songwriting and music theory.

About Me

At the early age of twelve I began beginner guitar lessons through a privately owned guitar shop near my home in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. By fifteen I expanded my guitar know-how through lessons with virtuosic guitarist Trey Alexander. These lessons with Trey introduced me to playing blues, rock, jazz, and metal styles of guitar. Around seventeen years old I began classical guitar studies with Skip Redding and piano lessons with Michael Schmaldienst through Penn Manor High School. I also sang in the high school choir and played guitar in the jazz band. To prepare for musical studies in college I began advanced theory and composition lessons with Dr. Simon Andrews at the Pennsylvania Academy of Music. I decided to stay near home for college and I was admitted to Millersville University for a B.A. Music Performance degree with a concentration on classical guitar.

I continued to sing, play piano, write songs, learn drums, bass guitar, banjo, mandolin, and further my musical theory studies. At one point, I was in two local rock bands, singing in choir, assisting my guitar professor Marcia Englar with guitar ensemble, and working on my solo classical guitar repertoire. Diversity in music has always been important to me and I pride myself on knowing a wide range of guitar and other musical performance practices.

After I earned my undergrad in Music Performance from Millersville University I auditioned at the University of Redlands here in Redlands, CA. By August of 2012 I was packing my car with all of my guitars and hitting the road for Southern California. My experience with music at the University of Redlands has has been phenomenal. I take lessons with Stuart Green and Bob Bozonelos, assist undergrad students in guitar, music theory, and history, and sing in the University choir. I love where I live, I love music, and I want to share my knowledge and experience with the world.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal as a guitar instructor is to teach YOU what YOU want to learn. Whether you want to lean chords and play guitar at church or learn jazz tunes and play in a jazz band. I can teach electric guitar, acoustic guitar, but my classical guitar skill is very advanced. The more specific your musical needs the better! I also have great experience with kids and teaching beginners if the students desire with the instrument are not specific yet.

I am very much a laid back guy, but I believe in doing homework and CONSISTENT practice. This does NOT mean a demanding "six hours a day" practice routine but rather a very focused brief practice period 4-6 days a week. Every student is different and I want everyone to have fun and enjoy the best instrument in the world. If the student has fun and keeps focused I firmly believe in noticeable improvement almost immediately!

With respect to guitar I have multiple books and literature in my library students may use. These guitar books cover beginner to advanced techniques. When it comes to bass guitar, banjo, or drums I mostly teach off book but I am more than able to introduce literature on these instruments as well.

I live, breath, and think music all day everyday and it would be my utmost honor to share my musical skills with you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Two classical guitars, one acoustic guitar, one electric guitar, one guitar amp, one electric bass, one electric bass amp, one ukulele, one mandolin, one banjo.

*** Travel Equipment ***
