I've been a full time professional musician for 18+ years and have toured all over the world performing with music icons like Chacka Khan, Beyonce, and many more. I have a lot of experience with many different styles of music and I love sharing this gift with anyone who's interested. My teaching philosophy is simple: Get students playing music! It's much easier to understand the nuts and bolts of music when put into the context of the music you like. *** Lesson Details *** I like to design a lesson plan for each individual student. The first lesson will begin with a basic assessment of skill level. We will discuss goals for the lessons then get down to work! Students will learn: 1 Technique. the proper physicality to increase dexterity and avoid injury. 2 Music theory and comprehension. Usually through learning songs and analyzing different concepts they incorporate 3 Ear-training/pitch recognition. Strengthening the ability to "pick up" new material more quickly and translate ones Ideas to the instrument. 4 Music appreciation/Musicality. Listening to new and different types of music focusing on the different elements that make up a great performer/performance. *** Studio Equipment *** Music Studio: piano, stereo system, no drum there! room to sit for parents A1: drum kit, whole performance set up with recording studio, room for parents to sit in on lesson *** Travel Equipment *** amplifiers, cd/mp3 player *** Specialties *** ear training, most musical styles (pop/rock, r&b, reggae, jazz , world)

Let's write hit records together! I'm currently on my second album and have written hundreds of songs for both myself and for others! I have toured internationally and know the ins and outs of the industry. Whether you want to write for yourself or for others - knowing how to find your unique voice is key. I also teach about the business of songwriting too - just one hit and you are set for life! Lessons would include finding out your goals and what you want to achieve, talking about what works for what type of songs, but ultimately I want to help you write a song that will change your life.

Songwriters! You have finally arrived to the help that you've been looking for. My skill as your coach is to provide a second opinion and assist in developing your personally written music. Things that we'll work on in our sessions are melody, song structure, rhyming, making sure your music flows, song titles, structure, lyrics, patterns, and performance of your work along with making sure you sound professional and clean. Try one lesson with me and if you're unsatisfied then we'll make sure to find you another teacher that can successfully help you with your needs. Your art means a lot to me and I want you to reach your full potential. Hope to see you in the studio!
