I have been a professional musician and teacher all my adult life. Music is my passion and has always been how I make a living. I teach piano/keyboards, guitar, voice, bass and ukulele. I studied classical piano at SUNY at Buffalo and I initially learned to play guitar and singing on my own. Years later I studied voice and guitar with great professional instructors. I am familiar with different ways of learning music: from very structured and traditional methods (that we use in classical music) to more improvisational and "by ear" approaches as we often do in popular music. This helps me tailor my music teaching specifically to each student based on his/her musical preferences, abilities and learning style. I can teach all styles of music including: Pop, Rock, Blues, Country, Bluegrass, ...

Do you love the folky, relaxed feel of the ukulele and want to create that sound yourself? Do you enjoy music and want to pick up an instrument, but don't yet have the confidence to try the six strings of the guitar? Maybe you want to learn to play music, but you simply don't want your first instrument to be super complicated. If any of these scenarios sound like the situation you're in, the ukulele will be perfect for you. When learning the ukulele, we start by learning a few basics about music and several chords. For most students, this phase takes about 3 to 6 weeks, and after that they're playing their own ukulele version of some of their favorite songs. So what are you waiting for? Let's learn to play the uke!
A short history of my experience with music and education: The first instrument I learned to play was the guitar in 2001. I played the guitar on the worship team at FBC of Midway in Plant City, FL from 2001 to 2005. I began teaching private music lessons in 2003. I played bass guitar in a Christian rock band called of Anastasis from 2003 to 2005. I played acoustic, electric, and bass guitar on the worship team at Family Worship Center in Lakeland, FL from 2006 to 2012. I worked as a freelance audio engineer with my in-home recording studio throughout college (and now I just do it for fun). I played bass and sang background vocals in a worship band called Skyline from 2007 to 2009. I taught music and trained a student led worship team at Hope Christian Academy from ...
I've been playing ukulele for 6 years now. I can teach many styles and techniques. If you want to learn it, I can teach it.
I specialize in the application of understanding music theory and your instrument. Music theory is the language of music. It's not scary at all....it's actually very fun.
I work with students on reading and understanding tablature, chords, chord positions, scales, modes, and writing music. Together we learn new material and skills to help us express ourselves musically.
We learn by teaching. That is why I love to teach, because I love to learn. I have made many great connections while teaching music to people and one of the ways to do that is to work together on a common goal. I started teaching music because during my own studies I have discovered many quick learning strategies that make playing music fun. I teach from my home studio as well as via Skype. Many of my strategies I've discovered on my own. Now I want to share these ideas with you. Scott is a multi-instrumentalist loop master whose music spans a wide range of sounds and genres. With an education in music performance and a reputation for having a good time this laid back musician is no amateur to the music scene. Scott has performed hundreds of shows and numerous festival ...
I'm new to teaching ukulele having started in June of 2014. It's similar to guitar so I have a great understanding of how the fretboard works and I can teach you chords to your favorite songs.
When I was growing up I thought music was like magic and that only special people with super-human powers could play. I would think to myself, "How are they doing that? I would never be able to play music in a million years!" It wasn't until I was 14 I discovered guitar magazines and a method of reading called guitar tablature that I realized anybody can learn guitar! With determination, patience, and practice I learned as many songs and techniques from my heroes (The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin) as I could. I realized there is so much to learn about music that I could learn something new everyday. This still holds true to this day. I keep digging to find that magic place to which music can take you. It is my goal as a musician and a teacher to help other aspiring musicians (YOU!)
I have found great success teaching ukulele to young children and find that it is an approachable instrument that is easy to play and is very affordable. In ukulele lessons we will learn the basics of the musical language with lessons focused on single note playing and strumming chords. The small nature of the Ukulele allows for small hands to form chord shapes and is easy to hold, pick, and strum the strings. The techniques learned on ukulele are similar and can transfer easily to guitar, bass guitar, banjo, and mandolin.
