Learn flamenco guitar and flamenco improvisation with ease from an experienced musician
I have been teaching since 2008 and have a BA in Music. I have been studying flamenco guitar just as long as I have studied classical guitar. I know many of the improvisation techniques and ideas in flamenco music. Come learn some tricks for the Spanish guitar and feel.
About Andrei P.

Teaching music is one of my passions. I value each student and the time I have with them; helping them to explore the world of music. After each lesson, my students walk away with a deeper understanding of music and have enjoyed their time. Music is a lifelong skill that can always be practiced and built upon. I can and have taught all age ranges. I am a husband and father. I received a BA in Music and have recently graduated with a Juris Doctor. I am a composer of music and have experimented with many music theory concepts. I composed for the Classical Guitar, Rock Band, various Classical configurations, and Jazz Ensemble. I like exploring concepts of counterpoint. I enjoy discussing concepts of improvisation and practicing with my students as they develop. I can teach improvisation in rock, blues, and jazz environments. I work through scales, arpeggios, phrasing, improvising over the melody and soul. I have played in various ensembles ranging from rock, jazz, and classical on both the guitar and bass. I can teach a student to follow a conductor, follow cues, and to use dynamics with an ensemble. *** Lesson Details *** I approach each lesson differently because every student is unique. During the initial lesson I will begin to assess the student's ability, determine the best teaching technique for them, and setup a practicing at home guideline. My job is to help the student reach their individual goals and support them along the way. I feel every student deserves to learn to read music, learn theory, and practice their ear. I will concentrate on these fundamentals as a student progresses as a musician. Lessons are currently taught in the students home or through an online format. There may be specific books and supplies I recommend purchasing (these will enhance the success of a budding musician). I work with the students to create song repertoire that the student finds enjoyable. *** Specialties *** I specialize in Classical Guitar, Upright and Electric Bass, music theory and music composition. I can teach many different styles such as Rock, Blues, Jazz, Classical, etc. I am always learning, and push myself so that my students get the best experience possible. *** Instruments and Subject Matter Taught *** Guitar, Classical Guitar, Jazz Guitar, Electric and Upright Bass, Beginner-Intermediate Piano, Beginner- Intermediate Banjo, Beginner- Intermediate Drums, Music Theory, Composition, Counterpoint, Basic Arrangement
