Lesson Details

Ear Training

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

With B.A. and Master's degrees in music and many years as a working musician, music book author and teacher, I incorporate ear training into the lessons I give; the goal is to help you be more than just a guitar strummer, but a musician as well, to develop the skills to become your own teacher and to go as far as you want.

Teaching since:

Hi, I am a native New Yorker and a guitar player since age 13. I played in blues/rock bands throughout my teens, getting to play the legendary clubs of my Greenwich Village neighborhood. My discovery of Spanish classical guitar music occurred in college at UC Berkeley, and I graduated with a BA in Music, then spent two years playing in Europe, before returning home and forming the band Not Heaven; we played the club circuit, Danceteria to CBGB.

I also began teaching at the American Institute of Guitar in NYC, and writing guitar instruction books (still in print!). Along the way I did a Master’s in Guitar Performance at Stony Brook, and have continued to publish, perform and teach the music which inspires me.

Classical and Flamenco music are my primary involvement, as a teacher, performer and composer.
