I have been playing guitar for 10 years and teaching since 2008. I emphasize a firm understanding of music as a whole and a technical foundation that will avoid any kind of bad habits/injuries and ensure progress throughout the student's life with the instrument. All students will learn basic music theory and technique, as well as whatever area of music they are particularly interested in, as the latter is greatly informed and better understood through knowledge of basic theory and technique.

About Miller W.

Hi!
I'm a multi-instrumentalist/composer living in Orange County and working as a session musician and composer in LA. I recently graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a BA -Music, emphasis in Composition/Jazz Performance.
I have been teaching since 2008, including extensive experience with special needs children.

I offer instruction at any level in:

Performance (10 years experience): Upright Bass, Electric Bass, Acoustic Guitar, and Electric Guitar in all styles. This also includes basic music theory instruction. A jazz curriculum is also offered.

Composition/Arranging - The history of composition and music theory as it applies to composition, as well as contemporary techniques in the classical and jazz idioms, film scoring, and popular styles. Includes a comprehensive overview of techniques for arrangement and orchestration.

Music Theory - An in-depth study of music theory as it applies to analysis, composition, and improvisation. A jazz curriculum is also offered.
