*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is based on the concept of positive reinforcement. I want to push you to excel by encouraging your confidence and your belief in your ability. I create assignments focused on your interests. If you are passionate about a particular genre or artist, then that's what I want us to explore. My expectation is that you practice between lessons and be prepared each time we meet. To that end, I place importance on making sure that making music is fun!
*** Studio Equipment ***
in-home w/ two guitars, electronic drum kit w/ seating for parents
*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a drums and piano in my apartment if students were to take lessons here. However, if I am traveling to their home they would need their own guitar, drums and/or piano.
*** Specialties ***
Rock, jazz, folk. I think inspiring composition is important and so is improvisation. Composing and improvising is a great way for a young musician to discover his or her voice.
