Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I've been teaching Music for 5 plus years and my students have gone on to accomplish great things. My goal and challenge for every student is to teach them how to play, read and listen to music. This will enable them the ability to play any song and any style of music. I specialize in Jazz, R&B and Classical. Typically I learn my students leaning habits whether its hands on or visual and their attention span, so I can't effectively teach my students. Can't wait to meet you!

I have acquired over five years of teaching experience, travel from ages 5 to 17 acting and playing music.

I love music and teaching, it is amazing to see the look on a student face when they learn something new and even better when they perform and stun the audience the joy that my students get makes me happy its confirmation of a job well done.

Good start

What I liked about Charles' teaching style is that he pushes, but in a very good way. My son took lessons with him, and a lot of times he can have teachers running in circles around him, but Charles was able to instruct in a way that worked very well and kept him focused.
