*** Lesson Details ***
With a strong foundation in music theory, technique and history, students of mine learn the music and styles they love with a knowledge and authenticity that only professionals have. I teach technique, music theory, history, songs, ear training, and depending on what level of student, lessons in being a true professional. We will work on scales, chords, modes, alterations, dynamics and reading music and find out the reason why these things are important.
