I have had extensive jazz a rock studies from attending The Guitar Institute of Technology in Hollywood, to becoming George Russell's teaching assistant at The New England Conservatory of Music in Boston before he retired. I learned from a true master of jazz and contemporary music regarding composition, improvisation, theory and teaching students.
*** Lesson Details ***
My aim is to share my musical knowledge, sense of harmony and technique to dedicated students. All melody and chords come from scales, which is essential to understanding music, as well as rhythms. I also accept what a student wants to learn. An important attribute of mine is patience, and the understanding that each person processes information differently.
