Mark S.

Las Vegas, NV

I've been playing flute for over 25 years and teaching for over 20. My teaching approach emphasizes a dual classical/jazz approach.

While QUITE knowledgeable, I don't generally teach advanced levels. For beginners and intermediate levels, I can teach motivated students to progress very rapidly.

About Mark

I just turned 49, and have been playing electric bass and guitar since I was 14, and took up flute a few years, later, and eventually saxophone as well. I graduated from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 1985 with a Bachelors degree in classical guitar, and have been teaching guitar and electric bass for over 25 years. I'm an eclectic player who has studied and integrated many concepts from varying styles including classical, flamenco, jazz, blues, and rock, and I've developed a unique and highly effective teaching method that draws from and builds upon the CAGED system and other established
successful methods. My approach to teaching emphasizes simultaneously learning musical concepts, knowledge and skills, and is a highly analytical approach that stresses simplifying, understanding, and mastering "the basics" of musical and instrument-specific knowledge and skills. I specialize in teaching ambitious and highly-motivated students who want to learn as much as they can, go as far as they can, and are prepared to commit to diligent study and practice, and I've developed a system that makes doing so as easy as possible -while utilizing the strengths and adapting to the goals of the individual student(s).

*** Lesson Details ***
My lesson approach is disciplined yet laid-back and supportive, emphasizing identifying and understanding the most basic musical and instrument-specific knowledge and skills upon which everything else is based. My approach is holistic, and emphasizes understanding the connections between everything; with new students who know nothing, I of course start from scratch; with students who do have some knowledge and/or skills, I'll emphasize reinforcing their knowledge and skill and "connecting" "puzzle pieces" -knowledge they already have- to increase that understanding they already have. Early lessons emphasize acquiring knowledge of the CAGED system (especially chords, arpeggios and scales), knowledge of basic musical concepts (especially intervals and chords), tuning the instrument, and proper playing/practice technique.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upstairs in loft or living room with bass/guitar amp, keyboard and seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students coming to my home can use my amps & cords (if applicable). I provide paper & printed lesson info. I expect students to have/use their own instruments. Of course, I also have a keyboard, for reference & use.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, classical, rock & blues -with a strong flamenco influence. My approach emphasizes learning/practicing knowledge & skill(s) at the same time, using many exercises to facilitate this. I prefer teaching advanced and/or highly-motivated "serious" students. I play/teach electric, steel-string, classical guitar -both fingerstyle & pick- and electric bass. I'm also a highly-competent flute and saxophone instructor.

I strongly emphasize learning the basics of music and the Western musical alphabet, the basics of music theory, and eventually, more complex elements/aspects of music -such as advanced harmony, counterpoint, and composition.

Fantastic Teacher

Mark is a musical genius in my opinion. His patience level is far beyond any teachers in any learning environment I have encountered. He is very connected with my progress and puts 100 percent into every session with me. I feel very fortunate to have crossed paths with Mark and appreciate his time and knowledge he shares with me in a craft he is very passionate about. Fantastic straight forward honest individual. Won't find a better teacher in my opinion!

Gizmo H.

Las Vegas, NV

Any saxophonist worth his weight in spit knows he needs to have his doubles down pat. I've spent many a night with this beast and am willing to enlighten other saxophonists (or other woodwinders in general) on its peculiarities.

About Gizmo

Hello, my name is Gizmo, woodwind and composition instruction. I am 23 years old and have been pursuing music for over ten years. A Vegas native, I am an alum of the Las Vegas Academy for Performing and Visual Arts ('08 graduate!). I've studied extensively with artists like Nathan Tenouye, Dave Perrico and Dave Loeb.

I am experienced with an array of different musical styles both classical (contemporary saxophone literature) and modern (jazz, sca, and more!) Weather gearing up for solo and ensemble festival and you need to learn the Fuzzy Bird Sonata or battle of the bands and you need to
learn that one sca line, I can help.

If you're interested in improving your ear or music theory skills, you're in the right place.

I am currently finishing a Bachelors of Music at UNLV in Jazz Composition, free for lessons almost any time.

David B.

Las Vegas, NV

Thirty plus years teaching and performing professionally on the flute.
I teach musicianship along with the instrument. Fundamentals are so important but passion and fun with music are important as well.
Learning an instrument is not a linear process it is a series of "breakthroughs." "X" amount of practice does not always equal "X" amount of skill. My job is to coach and motivate you to the next "breakthrough" and then celebrate, reward and solidify your new skill.

About David

Hi Everyone!
I started playing flute in the sixth grade in Las Vegas in the public school programs. I was in concert band, marching band and the pep band in high school where I also played piccolo.
I attended UNLV under scholarship as a flute and music major. I studied classical flute, performance, music theory and also picked up the guitar and piano as secondary instruments. I performed with the Nevada Dance Theatre Orchestra and with other classical groups in the Las Vegas area. I soon branched out to other genres and began playing professionally with rock and pop groups in the evening.

In 2007 I received my certification in Pro Tools from Berklee College of Music. I opened up a commercial studio in Flagstaff AZ and recorded many artists. I moved back to Las Vegas in 2012 and still have a small recording studio and still perform on occasion.
I have degrees in business and psychology and appreciate what is involved in learning a new skill physically, emotionally and mentally.
