Performing and recording musician with several groups for over 15 years. I have been teaching private lessons and classes in community education to students of all ages since 2007. I have also taught music in early childhood education, St. Paul Public Schools as well as music therapy programs at Minnesota Veterans Homes. I am always excited to witness my students joy as they reach and exceed their goals. *** Lesson Details *** Relaxed lessons geared toward the students goals. Various styles and techniques; Fun and efficient practice exercises; Improvisation; Patience and attention to progress; Wide Chord Vocabulary; Music Theory in a way that is easy to understand; Tone development and playing by ear. Every student is an individual and responds better to different teaching styles as well as learn at their own pace. My goal as a teacher is to give you an enjoyable experience in learning a new instrument and to tailor the lessons based on your interests and goals. After the first few months a beginner student can expect to have learned basic techniques and useful skills to allow them to play simple songs and melodies with ease. *** Studio Equipment *** Lessons are taught in a studio with amps, acoustic guitars and electric guitars, ukuleles, along with fretless and fretted bass guitars, drums, microphones, recording equipment and software, are available for a student to use during the lesson time. *** Specialties *** Simplifying concepts and process. Breaking down elements of how to play Pop, Jazz, Funk, Blues, Rock, Folk etc.
