Larry F.

Denver, CO

Lessons are personalized for the student and will address any issues that will improve overall musicianship: Tone Improvement, Musicality, Theory, Improvisation, etc.

About Larry

Music has been a huge part of my life, and I couldn't imagine a life without it. I hold a Bachelor of Music in Saxophone Performance and Jazz Guitar and have been exposed to nearly ever form of music imaginable. I began playing saxophone as a child, and picked up guitar shortly after. For the past decade I've played professionally and taught all around the country.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will be designed around each individual player's needs, but ultimately we will address proper technique, scales to chord relationships, rhythmic accuracy, soloing, and how to have enjoy playi
ng your instrument while sounding the best as possible. For classical players will will focus on classical theory, etudes, patterns, and general technique for proper tone. For jazz players we will dive into the world of improvisation, jazz theory, and standard jazz repertoire. I use many different technique books, as well as solo transcription books for solos. I'm generally laid back in my teaching style, but to progress as a musician one must have a certain level of dedication to practicing and commitment, so I do expect my student's to want to get better and practice accordingly.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Downstairs practice room: PA system, soundproof, books, music stands, amps, guitar, alto sax, tenor sax, chairs, additional seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar, Amp, Saxophone, Play a longs, Music stand, and Music Literature

Larry takes a great interest in the students goals. He is fun and energetic, but also serious about the progression of skill set. He not only helps our kiddo with technique, but instills the importance of really feeling the music and enjoying the music.

*** Lesson Details ***
The best lessons I've ever had were lessons in which I walked away saying "Man, I never KNEW that!" and it's my goal for you have that experience, too. Whether its how to play that chord or write a melody, how to get the best sound out of those stomp boxes, or when genres like shoegazer and post-rock were invented and what they sound like... there's something to be learned in every lesson.

The most important benefit of taking lessons from me is my experience. I started teaching casually as a teenager and have followed every opportunity since. My passion for music has allowed me to teach private lessons (10+ years), middle school guitar class (including a guitar ensemble), and college-level music theory classes. Extensive experience in writing, recording, and performing has only helped that passion to grow. I've developed a method to blend theory with practice every step of the way, and make the journey fun!

Parker is a great teacher & a really nice guy. I have been working with him for about 18 months, and I have come a very long way in my technical ability as well as my understanding of music theory. He has a very low key, positive approach to our lessons, which makes them relaxing and fun, but at the same time he has the ability to get me out of my "comfort zone" and doing things that are new and challenging, from dabbling in different genres to creating new arrangements of old favorite songs to diving into the theory behind iconic riffs and chord progressions.
He has become a friend and I look forward to all of our online sessions.

Parker is a fantastic teacher. I was EXTREMELY nervous when I went in for my first lesson. However Parker's personality and teaching technique put me right at ease. His experience makes him a very good teacher and the fact he's written a book also helps. If you're looking for a teacher I'd definitely recommend him.

Wow. All I can say is that I am completely amazed. The first session gave me so much valuable information about myself. I took my assessments online and was so amazed. You get to see an in depth look at your overall health with the assessments. The online assessments tell you more than any other personal trainer, health coach, or even doctor will tell you. Valuable information.
