Through my experience teaching I have found that music is a bridge that brings people together. With that being said I am very laid back, my whole goal is to make the learning process a fun one. When I was being taught I find that I learn more when I am enjoying myself, so this is the type of environment I strive to create for my students. I can specialize in guitar, such as rock/shred/blues/ and classical. I would say my strong points are in that of shred and classical, so all you shredders, I’m your guy! I have guitars and amps on hand if need be. I also specialize in drums such as rock and metal. I have roughly 16 years of experience on the kit. I can teach fundamentals like rudiments and how to apply them to the kit. If double bass is your thing, once again I’m your guy. For these types of lessons I would have to travel to you. I can also teach beginner piano, vocal, as well as some recording techniques.

*** Lesson Details ***
When it comes to the lessons I take everything in small steps. Repetition and consistency is key. Now I'm no drill Sgt, but I do love to have some sort of structure. All lessons are catered towards each students individuals skill level and needs. The MOST important thing is to have fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: music stands, amp, chairs, guitar, NO piano, NO drums at this location. Macbook, interface, protools, garage band. additional seating for parents if needed.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student will need to posses the instrument that is being taught.

*** Specialties ***
Progress Based method. Rock/metal/Lead guitar, Classical guitar, Piano beginner, Voice beginner, Drums/single pedal technique and double pedal technique/rudiments. I know the fundamental of Recording techniques and even had my own recording studio for a year back in 2002. I know theory basics into some partwriting.

It is hard to describe someone with a musical gift like Rene H.

Rene is an excellent teacher. Takelessons is very fortunate to have Rene's professional, knowledgeable, and musical talent. He is easy to work with. He's down to Earth and knows how to communicate with me. Also, he makes it fun and enjoyable to learn vocals. Takelessons has a great teacher on their side and deserves respect as a human-being and a mentor.
