About Charlie A.

Hello!

I am looking forward to advancing your knowledge and understanding of music and how it applies to what you are hoping to achieve in your studies, be it for work or pleasure. I have been playing since I was a young teen and later studied classical and jazz guitar at the University of Missouri - St. Louis, where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music.

Charlie is an awesome teacher and my 6 year old enjoys the guitar lessons. We like him so much better than the original independent teacher we had, with whom we felt rushed all the time, and we didn't get our money worth. With Charlie is different, he is patient and has the right approach for kids beginners; we highly recommend him to others.

I teach the fundamentals of melody, harmony and rhythm as it applies to the guitar. This includes technical studies which pertain to fingerings and hand positions, posture, etc. Students work on selected music to prepare for recital performance and come from all backgrounds, ages and skill sets.

Instructor
Aug 2016 - May 2017

St. Louis Classical Guitar Society

I teach the fundamentals of melody, harmony and rhythm as it applies to the classical guitar within a classroom setting. The typical class size is 10-12 students and is part of an after school program, which I currently teach in the Ferguson-Florissant school district. The program was developed by the Austin Classical Guitar Society located in Austin, Texas and it is extremely comprehensive. As an educator it is very rewarding because it teaches students to begin playing music together, as a guitar ensemble, on the first day of class.

I serve as an ambassador for the University of Missouri - St. Louis Music Department who performs and educates at local high schools in the area.
