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!
