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

Edward was very patient with my son, who is just about to be 4 years old. It's a little early to be starting lessons, but his older brother is taking lessons, so why not include the little one too. My son walked out the door and said, "that was awesome!" He even practiced at home later that night.

Edward is really helping me fill in a lot of loose ends with my guitar playing. I am self taught and I believe it is exactly what I need. He has a thorough knowledge of music theory. This is something I need a lot of help with, being self taught. I look forward to my lessons with Edward. They are non stressful and very rewarding.

I also plan on taking piano lessons with Edward.

Edward has been great with
My daughter who is 6 years old. He is very patient with explaining the lesson and also with answering any questions that either of us have. I look forward to booking more lessons with Edward

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.
