About Charles C.

I love music and I love to teach! My first experiences with music instruction were incredibly positive and since then I have wanted to pass that experience on to others. I have spent five years teaching privately with great success. I hold the Bachelor of Music and Master of Arts in Teaching degrees and have received extensive training at the Army School of Music. My experience has benefited each of my students in unique ways and I look forward to working with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is laid back. Each lesson is individually tailored to the needs of the student and their ability levels to both encourage and challenge them. If you are unfamiliar with how to read music, I can teach you that and I have had great success teaching my students. The most important thing is that you develop through music. This is not a "technique all the time" kind of approach. My students have the opportunity to learn to fully express themselves and to, hopefully, reach a deeper understanding of themselves. My students have a firm understanding of how to read and write music as well as the techniques that they need to accomplish that on their instrument(s).

*** Studio Equipment ***
3 amps, 3 acoustic guitars, 3 electric guitars, bass guitar, clarinet, keyboard, saxophone, 2 music stands

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar Amp
Music Stand

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in the theoretical aspects of music. I can break down the music into it's component parts, ie: phrases, overall structures, harmonic progressions. This allows me to pull out the deepest expression in music to add the "frosting" to the music. I am fluent in all styles and I am ready to help you to your goal!

Best music teacher I have ever had

Charles is a great clarinet teacher. He was very patient, supportive, and interested in helping me progress as a student of the clarinet. He showed me techniques to use to overcome various problems with breathing, articulation, fingerings, etc. I rate him at A+ as an instructor. I intend to continue lessons with him after the first of the year. He is definitely the best music teacher I have ever had.
