Hey there! I've been performing music for as long as I remember. (I used to give concerts for all the family gatherings!) I've been formally performing in music for over 30 years. I have formal training and 12 years of teaching experience. I teach with positivity, patience, and perseverance and help you express the music in you!
*** Lesson Details ***
All of my lessons are customized to your needs, preferences and goals. No matter what instrument or skill level, I'll take you through the basics and help you build solid practicing fundamentals. I'll also help you develop your performance and, depending on how serious you'd like to get, I can also teach you to read music and learn music theory as well! I balance learning and technical skill with fun and self-expression.
*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a dedicated music room, stocked with guitars, basses, and practice amp, keyboard and computers with recording software.
*** Travel Equipment ***
Keyboard, practice amp, and/or instrument cords. I expect the student to provide his/her own instrument, and prefer they have an amplifier for electric instruments.
*** Specialties ***
I teach in all genres, but have experience in rock, alternative, pop, jazz, and even music theater.
