Hey there! My name is AJ and music is my life. Whether its composing, performing, studying, teaching or just listening, I aim to fill my days with music. Nothing makes me happier than sharing my love of music with others, especially when it means helping someone discover music making for themselves. To me, music is a source of endless joy, excitement and fun and I seek to show that to all of my students. Background - I studied jazz, classical and electronic music at UC Santa Cruz. Received a B.A. in music in 2006. I've been a professional music teacher for 10+ years, including teaching at various Bay Area music schools and acting as band director for youth rock bands. I have also been actively playing in various bands in the Bay Area for the past 10+ years. *** Lesson Details *** ...
I have been teaching guitar for the past 10 years. I really enjoy teaching guitar and seeing my students learning and enjoying it too! I use a book that I really like but of course I add other materials when I think it is suitable for my student. Each student learns differently so I adapt to his learning style and to his needs.
About me, I have been playing the guitar for more than 20 years. I studied at the conservatory of Music in Paris. In San Francisco, I studied and played with many great jazz musicians and teachers. I have also studied Theory/ composition, electronic music and voice. I hold a degree in English literature and currently teaches also at the French American School in San Francisco. *** Lesson Details *** As a teacher I expect the best of you but I also know that we all learn differently and at a different path. As a beginner, you will learn to read and play at the same time by learning simple melodies and simple chords right away. As an intermediate/ advance, we will take it from where you stopped and will continue to move forward according to your needs and goals. I can also ...
Acoustic, electric, folk, blues, rock, indie, country, or anywhere in between. I've played them all at some point and picked up many tricks along the way that I give to you!
I've been teaching for over 10 years and I have never had more fun with it. I studied classical guitar for ten years earning a bachelor's and a master's degree in music. During my formal education I not only learned music theory, music history, ensemble playing, and composing, but more importantly I learned how to REALLY learn new things. This ability I try to pass on to my students.I love sharing the things I've learned from all of my various experiences whether it be from my classical guitar background or from one of my various pop/rock bands. I am a working musician and I still learn new things every time I go out to play. It could be classical music at weddings, Jazz at clubs, or Rock and Roll at rowdy venues. There's a lesson to be learned from each. *** Lesson Details *** ...
I've been teaching guitar for about 7 years now ~ I focus on reading chord diagrams, tab, reading music, rhythms, how to play rhythm guitar & lead guitar, how to jam with other people, finger picking and using a pick, various strumming patterns, using a metronome, progressions, scales, various guitar tunings, how to change your strings & care for your guitar, and about the body of the guitar itself. I also make it a point to teach my students songs they want to play, that way they want to practice and enjoy what they're learning!!
