Hello, Music has always been a part of my life. I've studied music at Dutchess Community College and SUNY New Paltz (Where I completed my Bachelor's Degree) I've been teaching music since 2010. For the past few years I've been very fortunate to travel the world performing music. I have performed in 45 of the U.S. States and 25 different countries across 5 continents. My goal is for the student to have and understanding of the music and perform it effortlessly. Most of all, help share with them the joy and happiness that music has given me over the years.
*** Travel Equipment *** When I travel, they're expected to have an instrument, amp (if necessary) and note book. *** Specialties *** Having taught for so long I rely on my own experience as a musician, using my extensive knowledge of music theory and the guitar as an instrument to impart a heightened awareness and love of performance and the rewards of a disciplined and focused practice habit to my students. Whether a student wants to learn rock, blues, jazz, pop, folk or other genres, I give them key insights and the right approach to achieve his/her goal in the minimum amount of time. Practice is essential to growth.
Over the past few years, I've studied with Modern Guitar Greats such as Jonathon Kreisberg and Mark Dziuba. Currently, I'm gigging around the Hudson Valley with several Jazz and Rock Groups. You can catch me playing every Sunday from 2-6 at the Cafeteria Coffee House in New Paltz. Skype Lessons are OK *** Lesson Details *** Lessons will involve building song repertoire, and exploring how to connect ideas aurally, visually, and mentally. Teaching, like jamming, should be a conversation. I look forward to learning as much from you as you do from me!
