Lesson Details

Blues Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Guitar lessons with me are designed to help students achieve their musical goals. I place high importance on building student self confidence, through improvisation, composition, and technique building exercises. I also place high importance on the use of technology in lessons (beat making, recording techniques, amplifier/effect pedal usage, etc.)

Teaching since:

Anthony has a great passion for working with students and helping them to succeed in achieving their own musical goals. As a teacher, Anthony’s primary motivation is to foster creativity, confidence, and independence in his students. Through a focus on musicianship, music theory, and technique, Anthony hopes to cultivate student’s abilities to learn and comprehend music quickly and efficiently. Over the course of several lessons, students will ideally develop methods to create music ways that reflect their personal voices. Anthony encourages his students to be confident improvisors as well as performers of written music and to make use of both acoustic and electric media.
Beyond teaching, Anthony is a composer, guitarist, and technologist based in Southern California. Through his compositions, Anthony explores questions relating to gesture, modularity, and metaphorical representation. Over his career as a composer, Anthony has developed a voice that focuses on both intricate systems and improvisatory practices. Combining the sound worlds of both acoustic and electronic instruments in his compositions, Anthony invents ideas to resonate with audiences of all types. His pieces have been performed internationally, with premieres in the United States, Italy, The Netherlands, and Spain. Anthony’s most recent project is a solo electronic rock show, that used interactive technologies, for real-time beats and effects – Songs For A New Era
