Overview

You are an individual who wants to learn.

I've mentored HUNDREDS of students and one thing I'VE LEARNED is that each one should be addressed in an INDIVIDUAL WAY.

There are, of course, certain exercises and warm-up techniques that EVERYONE should know but, beyond that, your musical journey with me will be a voyage on the open sea of harmony, melody, rhythm and soul.

If you are SERIOUS about learning then I will help you realize your goal.
The "stars of tomorrow" need to hit the woodshed NOW!

Take advantage of my VERY COMPETITIVE RATES!
