I have been writing and performing music since he was 15. Along the way I have played or recorded with numerous notable bands including Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees George Clinton and Parliament Funkedic, and members of Bob Dylan's band. In classical music, I have learned music composition under Dan Asia at the University of Arizona and East Indian Classical music from master musician Ali Akbar Khan at the Ali Akbar School of Music. I have been teaching lessons in guitar, vocals, banjo, and harmonica for 15 years. My lessons are always focused on whatever style the student is most interested in, yet still incorporate a dose of music theory and other styles to help inspire well rounded musicians. I can teach to any age, in any genre, as well as help with songwriting, ...
April is a native of Albuquerque, NM and has lived in Phoenix and Tucson for the past 3 1/2 years. She is a professional actor in musical theatre as well as film and television. While on a soccer & music scholarship, she graduated from New Mexico Highlands University in Las Vegas, NM with a B.A in Music Performance (piano & voice).
April started playing the piano at the age of 7 1/2 under the tutelage of Mary Jobe and Flora Russo and was a 1 st and 2nd place scholarship recipient at age 11 and 12. She also found an interest in composing and has written over 30 pieces of original music in which over half were completed between the ages of 12 & 20. She started singing at a young age but didn't start taking voice lessons until college.
In high school, at the request ...
From the basics of note recognition to Counterpoint and Jazz chordal analysis to 12-tone and serial music theory.
As a composer I have found it necessary never to stray too far from performance. The shear exhilaration one can obtain through playing an instrument is unique and powerful. I have devoted my life to trying to understand and master this elusive beast we call Music. As a child, of a peculiar spirit, I demanded my parents get me guitar and piano lessons. I felt an instant connection to these instruments and was compelled to investigate. After years of inquiry I ended up attending New School for the Arts, a high school devoted to the arts where I
studied music composition. From there, I went on to the University of Arizona to receive degrees in Music Composition and Philosophy with minors in Mathematics and English Literature. For my Masters' programs I wondered into the world of ...
I took all kinds of theory in college including form and analysis, 20th century techniques, and music theory 1 and 2.
I grew up in a musical family in Tucson, where my dad was a high school choir teacher for 25 years. I had the privilege to be in his choirs for 2 years! I attended Northern Arizona University studying music education/performance 3 years (music scholarship), Pima College music ed. 1 year. This included 3 hours per semester of private voice. Basically a different language every semester (French, Italian, German). During this time I formed an acoustic folk/rock duo night club act and played around Tucson for several years. Then I moved to L.A. to pursue my dreams. There I played beach clubs in another duo. I also was a studio singer and produced and sold a couple of jingles. I have been a staff singer with Arizona Opera since 1992. I have been in 80 + productions/600+ performances. I just ...
Hi! Thanks for taking a look at my teacher profile. Here's a little bit about me and how I can help you become the musician you want to be.
I started playing the guitar at age 17. I was being paid to play guitar and hand drums for dance classes at his college by the age of 19, and was hired on to the guitar faculty of the Fairmount School of Music at the age of 24. I realized that I'd gotten good only partially through short bursts of discipline lasting up to 6 weeks or so before I had to relax and just have fun for a while, and that for most people, year-round discipline was impossible due to temperament or other demands on people's time. These observations led me to boil down a teaching approach I summarize like this: "The more you have your guitar in ...
-Beginners learn how to read and write music, including clefs, time signatures, and triadic melodies.
-Intermediate students will learn four part writing and modulation types, and learn how to analyze sheet music. Emphasis can be given to either the theory itself, or the theory as it applies to playing an instrument.
-Advanced students will learn theories as they were applied in the different musical eras for a complete understanding of the theory, and the basics of Schenkerian theory.
I have played guitar since 2005, playing everything from Bach to Metallica, and taught since 2009. I also have extensive experience in the process of education, having worked for a college as a math tutor for the past two years, and pursuing a Bachelors of Arts in Music Theory and Performance.
*** Lesson Details ***
I will teach musical ideas as well as the techniques of playing guitar to students, to help them to become a musician, rather than just a guitar player.
I can teach a combination of music notation and tablature, which ever the student prefers, but I will single out the advantages of both. I will also endeavor to teach the student whatever he or she is interested in playing
*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is a separate room that houses several guitars, acoustic ...
