Joey R.

Charlotte, NC

I have completed four semesters of Music Theory at UNC Pembroke, and four semesters of Structure and Style of Music (Music Theory) at UNC Charlotte. I practice music theory everyday, and most importantly, I have found how to APPLY music theory to guitar in performance. Music theory is more than just a course. It is the understanding of music theory that provides world-class musicians the tools necessary to interpret the music beautifully!

About Joey

Joey Rincon is a classical and spanish guitarist in the Charlotte and surrounding areas. He is a very friendly and compassionate musician, and is completely immersed in the music world. Naturally, he wants to share his love of music with his students, and his goal is to awaken the musical potential in his students. He's been on a journey with guitar for 15 years. As an instructor, he is gifted in providing inspiration to his students. Technique, expression, repertoire, sight-reading, music theory, and much enthusiasm describe the experience of studying the guitar with Joey.

Joey Rin
con has been honing his technique and artistry on the guitar for 15 years. He was born and raised in New York, where he was first introduced to classical music through the violin. Now, he is a music student of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where he continues on his musical journey as a classical guitarist.

Joey Rincon has studied classical guitar under the mastery of Derek Day at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, and Charles Vaughn at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. His playing reflects his Spanish culture and background, while simultaneously being fueled by his unstoppable love for music.

During his studies on the classical guitar, he has worked with the music of Mauro Giuliani, Matteo Carcassi, Francisco Tarrega, J.S Bach, and much, much more. What separates Joey Rincon from other musicians is his unmistakable close attention to small details in music. From studying under masters in the field, Joey Rincon pays special attention to the basic musical components such as melody, rhythm, and harmony, while putting a tremendous amount of effort and thought into his tone production. His musical ideas are an exact reflection to how he views the world around him; a beautiful, adventurous, and emotional reality.

His repertoire is forever expanding, but focuses mostly on the Baroque and Classical Era, and Spanish music, particularly that of Antonio Lauro and Francisco Tárrega. Joey is not limited to the genre of Classical music- his roots are in blues and classic rock, alternative rock, and even metal. However, the enticing sound of the classical guitar has become his primary instrument in the last few years, and performs mostly that genre of music.

I can make it very simple and easy to learn and understand these concepts. I aim to make it an enjoyable learning experience and have great ways to make it all easy to understand and fun!

About Ethan

My name is Ethan A. I love music more than anything else in this world. It is my passion and art. I have always enjoyed it, and have been playing music myself for nearly 9 years. The main thing I am good at teaching is guitar. I can teach various styles and genres, techniques, and many aspects of music theory along the way. The way I teach is an aim to make it very simple, easy and understandable to students. I can have students go a long way in understanding music and guitar in just 1 lesson! I also have experience with piano and SLS (Speech Level Singing) vocal technique, and am a singer mys

If anyone would like music lessons with me, I am widely available. I prefer to do lessons over Skype, but can drive to places within the Charlotte area in North Carolina. I look forward to working with many students and helping them unlock guitar and musical skill. :)

Dwight M.

Hickory, NC

Music theory is vital to anyone, especially those who want to take their playing to a professional or semi-professional level.

About Dwight

I began playing guitar at age 5 1/2. I learned to read music at same time as learning to read written words. I studied cello briefly through the 7th grade. I took up upright bass to play in the high school jazz band. I majored in double bass in college, earning Bachelors degrees in Music Education and Music Performance, including two years as the recipient of the Alyse Smith Reynolds Performance Music Scholarship. I spent six years on the road with The Graphic and 3 years with jazz rock trio Toys Don't Hate. I have had the honor of performing with jazz artists Clark Terry, Zoot Sims, Eddie Dan
iels, Marian McPartland and Dave Brubeck and others. Several of my students have gone onto touring bands and some are 1st call players in New York and LA.

Blake August 14, 2015
Piano · In studio
I was 13 years old when I started playing piano. At first, I learned by ear and thought I could learn everything on my own. But I started taking lessons with Brian just to see if it would help me, and he taught me SO much about proper technique, articulation, etc. Now I study music at UNCG and I am an accompanist for church and musical theatre productions and an on-the-side composer. Without Brian's guidance and teaching I would most definitely not be where I am now or will be in the future.
