From Jimi Hendrix to Red Hot Chili Peppers to Reggae to even slide guitar I can show how to bend, wail, rock and jam out!
I began playing guitar at 12 years old. Before that I had dappled with the piano and always sang. There was something about the guitar that just drew me in! I always loved seeing the hands of guitar players and the sounds that would accompany those shapes. Guitar is a very pattern based instrum

Music Education from Rollins College
I have completed training in vocal Pedagogy from Rollins College. I have over 2 years of experience teaching voice to students whose ages ranged from 4 years old to 19 years old. I am passionate about singing and teaching voice. I strive to structure each lesson according to the individual needs of each student and to help them get excited about what they are learning and performing.
Music is my passion and I love having the opportunity to share that passion with others through teaching. I have an Bachelor of Arts in Music Education from Rollins College as well as a Florida Educator Certificate in K-12 Music. I have studied piano for 13 years and voice for 5. I have also receiv

Awarded Susan and Ford Schumann Scholarship from Aspen Music Festival
Master of Music, Cello Performance from San Francisco Conservatory of Music
While I certainly place emphasis on technical work and mastery, I also want all students to feel comfortable in expressing their individual voice and interests. I believe that it is incredibly important to encourage students to explore a number of creative avenues within music. Therefore, I am very open to having students explore music outside the classical canon in addition to experimenting with improvisation and composition. An additional component of my teaching style is finding unique and interesting ways to keep students motivated and teaching them how to effectively practice and learn on their own.
My teaching philosophy is largely centered around the importance of individuality. The “one size fits all” approach is hardly ever adequate--every student has different needs, strengths, and challenges. While I certainly place emphasis on technical work and mastery, I also want all students to feel

Whether you are a vocalist, a pianist, or a singer-songwriter, I can help you take your expression and technique to the next level. I emphasize the concepts of "knowing your space" and then "owning your space" in order to help maximize the potential of the performer. I have coached hundreds of people over the last 6 years, and have worked as an Artist Developer/Music Producer for several artists.
Whether piano, voice, songwriting/composition, music theory or music production, I bring all that I have learned and developed as a musician to the lesson in the interest of the student’s growth. Whether we work in classical, jazz, or pop, We focus on what will directly fit your individual goal

Chris P.Book Now
As a student at Berklee College of Music, I have several semesters of study in music theory. Not sure what makes a chord? Want some refreshers or just some more advanced theory and how that relates to your playing? I can teach you everything you need to enhance your playing as a performer.
I have been playing guitar most of my life on stages big and small. Even when I had a responsible “day job”, music has always been the heart of my life and I am looking forward to sharing that gift with others. I am currently going to Berklee College of Music as a guitar performance major and I

I'm new to the banjo, having spent most of my life playing the guitar, acoustic, of course. I'd met Mike at a jam and was very impressed by his abilities. I was surprised to learn that we lived near each other, and I was in touch with him when I returned home. I started lessons with Mike and am now playing much better, due to his help. He's very patient, taking the time to show me not only how to play better, but also how to play with others in a "group" situation. I will continue to take lessons until

There are several ways to master the technique of changing chords, so let’s look at a couple of exercises using basic guitar chords. The basic guitar chords are C, D, Dm, E, Em, F, G, A, and Am. Some instructors add C7, D7, E7, G7, A7 and B7. The F chord is always the most difficult for the beginning guitar player because you hold two strings down with one finger. Ideally, you want your basic guitar chords to sound clean and crisp – no muffled strings. Keep practicing the individual chord …
