**All of my students learn:

We will focus 1/2 of the lesson on repertoire and 1/2 the lesson on technique. Many of my students text/email me a few days prior to our scheduled lesson with a song selection for the week. I focus our lesson's technical study with the song in mind. It has proven to be very effective and makes the technique and theory are less "boring."

(2) tube guitar amplifiers, and various guitar effects pedals.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a guitar, videos, music recording, music workbooks and everything else a student may need... I prefer for students to print chord/fretboard & staff paper and bring to their lessons... Although I can do it if they can't... Students should just bring a list of songs they wish to learn to our lessons and a desire to learn
*** Specialties ***
I am a performer and producer, fluent in the latest recording technology, with a ton of touring/stage experience. In addition to technical studies my students receive performance coaching/career development. I will help you to find your unique voice, a polished and distinct sound, and your true personality as an artist. I am 100% committed to making you a success!
I will recharge your passion for music and making music.

Please note: I only accept weekly lesson students. Also, due to my performances, I'm not always able to this calendar up to date....so when you request a lesson time, allow me to communicate with you, if we need to adjust it a bit. It almost always works out if you don't mind doing that.
*** Lesson Details ***
All the students on my Student YouTube channel who have studied under three years, are practicing 2 hours a week, and you will have a similar result. That's 20 minutes a day, 6 days a week. Students under 5 practice about 5-10 minutes a day.
Please have an assignment book that lies flat, and keep it next to your music books as you practice between lessons. My instructions are very detailed to insure your best progress.
For on-line lessons, you will need a quiet place, and please test your sound and video prior to beginning of lesson. For students under 13 or so, do have a parent or caregiver taking notes while we work together.
I have much experience with various learning styles, and in fact, am featured in a documentary made of one of my autistic students.

Hey, I'd love to teach you or your student! I can show and explain how to be more efficient, consistent, and creative while providing a serious academic environment. My philosophy is 'music begat theory', in other words playing music is fun. Connecting with people comes first, while theory and history follows. My lessons explore the entire world of music, while my in-depth drum set curriculum approaches the drum set through all forms of percussion, rock and jazz. I have a studio in Austin with 2 drum sets, a piano keyboard, and a plethora of other gear. I want to share the love and resonance that I have experienced while discovering music. I do what I love and I love what I do!

Perform like you 'own' it, perform like you mean it!
Whether piano or vocal, we discover how to reach your desired audience with stage presence, beautiful music, and hosting technique as you perfect your 'delivery' to your listener. Your body communicates your message along with your music. We will explore various techniques that enhance your unique sound and personality to the broadest audience while leaving them with an amazing musical experience.
All three inspired me to attempt to play music.
Music has played a very significant role in my life since high school, where 'study hall' was my chance to first play by ear on a grand piano. I LOVED playing music and singing!
Evidently it 'took.' I sooned gained admission through audition to the University of Tennessee where I studied classical, jazz and vocal music with Dr. Bill Dorn, Dean of Piano, and acclaimed jazz master and author Dr. Jerry Coker.
From the World's Fair to the Biltmore House, I have enjoyed performing at these and many other venues. Yet, teaching is my first love musically.
Over the years I have found teaching not only sight-reading based methods but chordal and ear training to be essential elements of enhancing my students and student
You see, reading sheet music is only a piece of the pie. When you add ear-training, active listening, performance training, multi-genre analysis, accompaniment and collaboration to the educational mix, students begin to understand and LOVE music.
Once students love music, there is no stopping them! Students practice and PLAY more, and they get better because of their enhanced practicing. It becomes less work and more PLAY!
And passionate students become PERFORMERS! Whether for audiences of one or hundreds, the satisfaction and sense of fulfillment is amazing, and THAT is why I teach. The rewards and excitement are mutual, for the student, for me and their audiences.
I have been performing and teaching for over 35 years and love to share my amazing musical experiences (and experience). It could change your approach to music, enhance your appreciation and understanding of music, and quite possibly change your musical life.
