- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+
- Teaching since:
I have been traveling internationally, playing and teaching in a wide variety of settings for 25 years. I love people, and I love music! But I particularly love fathering/mentoring and guiding others towards their full creative potential.
Piano 1st, guitar 2nd, and a number of other instruments have been my specialty, including sometimes playing two at a time! I also spent years as a record producer (100+ projects, created curricula and taught at a recording trade school in USA) and that experience partly gave me tools to teach people to find their own inner artist.
Technical things are important, and I do teach those things. But they must always serve the context of being to tools to create with and express with. My goal is to help you find your own sound, your own Voice in music and mature and develop that.
Also, I intentionally come from a wide background of experiences and styles, that serves to provide unique seeds for both my creativity and the path my students take. An idea from a film score gets used in a hip-hop track, and a jazz chord becomes the launching point for a reggae beat, and such.
Finally, I really appreciate getting to know my students relationally, allowing both a fun time in lessons, but also a potentially meaningful connection in life. Hope to hear from you!
