The mountain dulcimer is a great instrument to play. One can learn many songs remarkably fast. I usually start with standard folk songs and basic strum patterns. Then the melody can be added later.

While acting for stage and acting for film are require different training. I train my students for both. Everything you learn for stage you will learn for film.

We will focus on:
Scene study
Script Analysis
Monologues
Voice/Diction
Movement for the stage

The inner work is important

I compose music on a daily basis and often get requests from students on how to compose their own music. While I do allow a bit of freedom, I do think it's important to understand exactly what you are doing and how to put that on paper or into your own music writing software.

Learning arrangement options can make a big difference in sound and feel. Learn the theory behind the music so you can rearrange your own songs!

I'm a full time, music pro making 100% of my income from wedding gigs, corporate paid performances, and original music gigs where I play classical wedding marches, to pop rock country acoustic "cocktail hours" to "Indie Rock Electric" pro original studio/stage work and in 2019-2020 I have 110,000 "Streams/downloads" of my original music on Spotify, Apple Itunes and more.

My advanced students work with me on blues like Stevie Ray Vaughan or classic Rock by Jimi Hendrix and more from Elvis to Beatles to Metallica that "sound easy" on the radio, but the studio overdubs/layers/ live performance effects reveal true genius of bands that have

Ear Training is a vital skill for serious musicians, whether you are a singer-songwriter, a performer on stage, or you just like to jam with friends on the back porch.

While some people associate ear training with "perfect pitch," it is much more useful - and easier - to develop "relative pitch," or the ability to recognize musical intervals.
This skill is essential for being able to sing or play in harmony, as well as for composition, arrangement, and improvisation. In Ear Training lessons, you'll learn ancient techniques for discerning music pitches and intervals, using your voice as well as a keyboard or any instrument of your choosing.
You'll practice using major, minor, augmented, and diminished intervals up and down the scale, in major and minor scales as well as other modes and scales. Woven into the practical lessons, you'll also learn key aspects of music theory. We'll study how the relationships between different scale degrees form the basis of harmony, and explore how ...

I've just done my first session w/Sean. I'm signing on for a while as he seems very approachable, knowledgeable, and flexible. He also has a varied background w/singing/songwriting/guitar playing which will work for my new approach. He also works in several complimentary areas of music & likes Rumi & J. Mitchell as much as I do!

"Greg has been an incredible teacher and mentor to me over the years. He’s pushed me to get out of my comfort zone and be successful in every musical area I chose to pursue. Greg made valuable acoustic guitar and vocal lessons enjoyable and rewarding. I’ve seen him build up teams of inexperienced people to become well rounded and proficient musicians. Top instructor recommendation for pursing a musical passion.

You can use it wherever needed. Let me know if you need anything else or any adjustments."

Play-Along Strategies for Drum Techniques

Playing along with songs can be an effective learning technique, especially for drummers.  With the background music in place, you can then practice different drumming styles, as well as practice staying in tempo, if that's something you're struggling with.  Here is a recommendation from Jeff F., one of our Chicago drum teachers: As a working musician and teacher I have found playing along with recordings to be a valuable learning tool.  Doing this enables you to really get inside …

Music can be a very rewarding experience - and a personal one, at that. Most musicians spend a LOT of time with their instrument, often baring their souls in the form of melodies and lyrics. If you treat your guitar like part of the family - or your best friend - you'll relate to what Gresham, OR guitar teacher Ed P. has to say here...   Did you know that some of the old blues players named their guitars?  Some of them were even rumored to sleep with their guitars.  I’m not saying tha …
