My strong suits are teaching rhythm guitar, comping jazz chord charts, finger-picking, easy to intermediate classical technique, improvising, composing/song-writing, recording, electronic music production, guitar chord formations all over the fret board, music theory, learning songs by ear, and memorizing songs. I have taught music technology courses at American University as an adjunct professor for the past seven years; mainly teach the industry standard recording software Pro Tools.
I can’t teach speed metal solos, sorry. I wish I could!
*** Lesson Details ***
If you know you want to get from point A to point B I will structure lessons to get you where you want to go. I am laid back, but most of all I'm patient.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Drumset, Bass Amp, Bass, Guitar Amps, Guitars (electric and steel string, classical, 12-string), Ukuleles, Keyboard, etc.
*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitars, ukuleles, bass and amps. I am happy to help a new student pick out an instrument at a local store, but I don't provide outright instrument rentals myself. If I'm going to be teaching music theory I would need a piano at the student's location.
