About Ruben D.

Over the course of my musical career, I have had the opportunity to learn from many musicians. I am skilled at taking complicated ideas and conveying them in an easy to understand manner for my students. My passion is being able to share my knowledge and experiences with you so you will be able to enjoy a life of music. I can help my students learn how to create their own music to record and perform. Ensembles that I have directed have performed at many local venues and I have invited students to join me at performances to help them become more confident in their playing. I have been teaching guitar professionally since 2001 and performing professionally since 1994. *** Lesson Details *** Each lesson is custom made to directly benefit each student. The music the student enjoys listening to, is explored to identify what skills are needed to play that music on their instrument. Exercises are then tailored to give students the finger strength and dexterity to directly attain those needed skills. Favorite songs are also examined to understand the musical theory concepts that were used to create those songs. Once those concepts are understood there is no stopping the student from creating their own music. Parents and guardians are more than welcome to be part of the process. Involving parents in their children's education is my pleasure. My studio has a comfortable waiting area where you can wait until the lesson is done. Questions are always appreciated. *** Studio Equipment *** Two chairs, music, computer, internet, digital recording equipment, guitar, guitar amps, parents can sit in on lesson, bass, ukulele. *** Travel Equipment *** I provide whatever is necessary. Students should provide their instrument, music stand, and two chairs. Access to an electrical outlet is mandatory. *** Specialties *** Latin, Rock, Blues, Classical
