Overview

My name is Edward and I have been playing music most of my life. I was involved in every form of music education that I could find, and took private lessons on guitar and piano for ten years. During this time, I learned that I improved when I performed music that I liked. I attended the College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY and received a B.S. in Studio Music in 1996. I then moved to San Diego, CA and started my own business teaching music. The lessons were taught at the students' homes and I incorporated the students' interests in teaching. I have also performed for many years and have written many songs that have been recorded and performed.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method is unique; I never teach the same way for everyone. The main objectives I teach include performance, reading, ear training, theory, composition and improvisation. I find that playing examples of music that you like is the best way to improve skills. I will recommend books that best suit your style and level. The main styles include (but not limited to) rock, blues, classical, pop, jazz and country. Please contact me if you have any other questions about my teaching methods.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Yamaha 88 key weighted action digital piano with recording features. I also have music stands and amps for guitars. We have a smoke and pet free home. I also have a large collection of sheet music and music books available for lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will travel to your home. Clark County, NV

*** Specialties ***
Music, Guitar, Piano, Electric Bass
Sight reading, ear training and songwriting

Ed is an effective teacher that is patient and talented. He plays the bass effortlessly and has awesome taste in music! If you're a rock or metal fan and want to learn guitar or bass, you found your teacher. Thanks Ed!

Edward really worked with my kids, taking into account what they wanted to learn, and how they wanted to learn it. This was great, because one was more focused on classical music, and the other on pop. He brought notes, and sent emails, and generally kept me very well updated on their progress. I would definitely recommend him as a teacher!

As an adult, time to practice is a luxury. I really like that the practice pieces are music that I like and are challenging enough for me to enjoy the time spent. Also, he takes time to answer my questions thoroughly, so that I actually feel like I am learning. He is patient and isn't hard on me when I make mistakes. I have started lessons a couple of times, without success. I believe Edward, by far has the best technique and teaching style, for me to enjoy this learning experience.

Edward is wonderful

He teaches with variety.
He is very patient and doesn't make me feel embarrassed for mistakes or being slow with playing. Learning to read is hard but he makes it very possible and I would recommend him to everyone and anyone he teaches all ages ! I love him !
Thank you Edward.

Exceptional piano teacher

I am an older student and I was very self conscious and nervous. Edward makes me feel welcome and is patient and extremely helpful to me in making me feel comfortable playing the piano. I have learned more from him than any other piano teacher I have ever had. It is a joy to come to my lessons and learn from Edward. He is knowledgeable and is teaching me more advanced piano. I am so glad to be working with Edward and playing piano again and enjoying it. Thank you Edward!

Nice and professional

Edward has been very professional and a very good teacher for my 7 year old son, who started little over an year ago. We never had any problems with the timings or other issues. Ourselves never been into music, it is hard to judge a music teacher, but as of now we have been very satisfied with our son's progress.

Experienced, Professional Musician, Excellent Teacher

Edward Is very positive and upbeat musician/teacher. As I am not a beginner but rather an intermediate student, I go to Edward for more specific insight and help with issues or problems I am trying to work on to get my playing ability up to my goals.
He is very patient, He listens to me and understands the areas of my playing that I am trying to improve. He then shows me not only what to work on, but how to work on things.
He is very friendly and easy to talk to and to learn from.
One very important aspect about Edward is that he also teaches Electric Bass and Guitar.
He is experienced in playing in a band and with other musicians and brings that knowledge through in my lessons. This is very important to me. Especiallyif you enjoy playing in a band like I do.
