I was born in Argentina. I began playing bass when I was ten years old, while my younger brother began playing drums. I started taking bass classes, and also formed several bands as a bass player, although the drums had always been sounding in the back of my head. After listening to Tool’s Danny Carey and Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater, at the age of 17, I realized the drums were my true love, and began studying the instrument. I continued playing bass in several bands, until I joined the band The Evenfall as a drummer, in 2009. At this time, my family was considering moving to the U.S, and that's when I got the chance to apply to the Berklee College of Music. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2012 with a degree in Drumset Performance. There I studied with the most respected drummers and ...
I started playing guitar and bass in my early teen years because I just couldn't wait to see a live concert. I thought if I could play the songs myself, it would be just as good. Well, it turns out that playing music you love yourself is even better than seeing a concert. You can make your own concert everyday! Since then I've been fortunate enough to work with a great deal of professional performers and to play many hundreds of successful live shows. Several years ago, I decided to focus on teaching. This was a great decision, because I truly love this work. I make a real difference in peoples lives, and help them achieve their goals, and sometimes even their dreams! *** Lesson Details *** Students can expect fun lessons based on songs they love. Acoustic, electric, classical, ...
I began taking piano lessons when I was six years old, but switched to guitar lessons at age ten. Ever since then, my passion has been playing guitar and songwriting. I am a music composition honors major at UCSD. Whether you want to learn to be a guitar virtuoso or you just want to be able to play some songs for your friends and family, I want to provide you with the best information and tools to help you accomplish your goals. I believe in trying to get the most out of the minimum - I want you to get the most benefit out of the time you spend, regardless if you are practicing for thirty minutes or for eight hours. My background focuses mostly on classical, rock/metal, and jazz, and my specialty is the electric guitar. I can also help you learn classical guitar on a nylon string ...
Born in Omaha, NE, I have played bass for 25 years - and began teaching bass 15 years ago. I play and teach many contemporary musical styles, and have lived in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Denver, Colorado, Austin, Texas, and currently reside in San Diego, California. I began studying Bass in 1987 under guidance of David Valentine and Jim Vaughn (both Principal Bassists with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra), and quickly began performing with the Colorado Springs Community Jazz Big Band, and other local artists and jazz swing small groups. In the early 1990's and after moving to Denver, Colorado, I joined the Neil Haverstick Band which often featured popular area vocalists such as Charla Bevan and others. While with the group, I played the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, and opened for ...
I studied Jazz Guitar with Peter Sprague and then went on to study the classical guitar with Celin Romero. Later on, while I attended UCSD I studied with Pepe Romero in master classes. In 1982 I became interested in classic rock and founded my band, The Mar Dels. We still play all over the world for private and public events. During my time with The Mar Dels I have learned and performed many of the classic rock hits. *** Lesson Details *** I am interested in giving my students a solid background in right and left hand technique for the guitar. This will include finger picking technique for the right hand as well as flat picking. I would like all my students to develop a correct left hand position. This is very important to the student if they wish to continue to play for many years ...
I LOVE to teach and I am looking for a few rad students! I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a major in Music as well as minors in both Religion and Philosophy from Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. After graduating in 2004, I moved to Philadelphia with my band, The Gravy who had been playing shows all over the East Coast from Vermont to Virginia. I worked in both the Pro Audio and Guitar sections of a large music store which taught me all about gear, recording and live sound. I began working at School of Rock in Downingtown, PA in October of 2005. In May of 2008, I relocated to San Diego and began working at the Vista (now Oceanside) branch of the School of Rock where I was Music Director until 2012 when I left to pursuit a more rigorous performance schedule with my band
