I have been passing on what I've learned in my own studies, personal and privately taught, to help new students get the strong foundations for becoming the best musician they can be. I've been playing since age 6 (now 44) and performing since 18. I started with Classical guitar, then Rock and Jazz. In all my years of study, I've learned how to teach and how NOT to teach. I have had many years of private lessons. I've written, recorded and performed for over 20 years. My wife and I even do voice over work on occasion. *** Lesson Details *** Students have become friends and I've seen many go on to become performers, songwriters and teachers. I also use a wide range of materials when teaching like DVDs, CDs, and computer 'play along' tracks. I love teaching, seeing people smile and ...
First and most importantly, I'm a 40 year-old dad to two great little boys and a husband to a fantastic wife - but before I was either one...I was a rocker. I got my first guitar when I was 15 years old (I had wanted one for 5 years but my sister cried too much about piano lessons so she blew it for me - but that's another story), and started taking lessons from a fantastic teacher shortly thereafter. By the time I was 18, I moved off to college, where I proceeded to focus all my attention (much to my parents' dismay) on playing and forming a band. My parents got kinda mad, but I put together that band - which lead to a bigger, better band and a record deal. I spent my early and mid 20s touring, making a record and getting so close to rock stardom that I could taste it - but it ...
Graduate of the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles. Twenty years experience
I began playing and studying guitar while still in grade school. Always a big part of who I am, guitar became the central focus of my life when I moved to the west coast in 2010 to enroll at The Musicians Institute's College of Contemporary Music. While there, I had extensive training in sight-reading, ear-training, music theory, chart writing, and such practical music applications as scales, modes, soloing techniques, chord voicing and inversions, chord progressions, and rhythm techniques. My studies covered a broad spectrum of music styles, including blues, rock, fusion, country, pop, reggae, acid jazz, funk, and R & B, as well as such concepts as the basics of the music business, studio and audition skills, and computer notation. Having now attained my Associate of Arts degree ...
