*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice amp, spare instrument cables.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have their own guitar, practice amp, spare strings, chromatic tuner, instrument cables, notebook, pencils, pens, guitar picks and any pedals they wish to use. If they have an acoustic guitar then I would expect them to also have a capo. I bring all materials listed above as well as my list of books and study material. I try to keep all materials in digital form to send to the student and parents at their convenience. In addition to the aforementioned, I also will come equipped with a macbook laptop computer with Pro Tools 8.0.3 and Logic Pro X professional recording software installed on it. I also will bring a fast track pro recording interface, a Sennheiser e935 vocal microphone.

*** Specialties ***
Genres I specialize in include rock and metal vocals and guitar. Songwriting, production and performance

Very Broad range of knowledge on ProTools v8.
Had a lot of very useful information and tips to get started quickly.
His style of teaching made it fun and interesting.

I took guitar lessons with Aaron and then later did both singing and guitar lessons. I found him very proficient in both. The lessons were enjoyable and I learned a lot. Highly recommended.
