About Ronald A.

I am an experienced professional with a background in music performance, education, composition, theory and arranging.

*** Lesson Details ***
Few musicians or music students have identical goals, musical interests or physical size. So, It is NECESSARY to customize the course of study to meet student requirements. There are common issues for any serious pursuit of learning involving the guitar; right and left hand technique, fingerboard knowledge, chord knowledge, reading and interpretation.

However, to progress, it is also necessary for the student to practice daily.

I try to maintain a healthy balance between the focus on performance and technical issues.

It was obvious to me at my first lesson with Ron, that he is an experienced and top quality musician and teacher. I have enjoyed several lessons with him so far. He is patient, makes learning fun, great at conveying the material, and has set a learning pace that feels just right for me.

Ron is a versatile musician and teacher. I've been playing bass guitar for over 15 years and Ron has helped me tremendously to "up my game" in to the challenging and exciting world of jazz. His lessons are all very well structured and planned out. He gets an "A+" from me!

The best teacher I've ever had...

My learning experience with Ron has been great! I'm truly getting to know my instrument and what it takes to be a good musician. The lessons are designed to my specific needs and cover the full spectrum of musicianship. I'm confident that with Ron's guidance and routine practice, I'll finally be the guitarist/bassist I always wished to be.

Thanks!
