Teaching since:
May 2014

I play 4 different instruments (guitar, bass, piano and drums). I also sing and write my own songs. I have written 16 original songs and I am currently working on a new album. I know EXACTLY how chord progressions and melodies theoretically work, and I have a REALLY good system for writing my lyrics and it's EXTREMELY effective. If you decided to take private lessons with me, you will learn really important basic music theory concepts that apply to almost every single genre of music, and how these concepts are related to songwriting. Most of the the topics covered in my lessons include the intervals that make up each and every major scale, how certain triads within one key are related to each other, the parameters of each tonic key, the technical aspects of a melody, what are diminished chords are how and when to use them in your songs, what are modulations and how and when to use them in your songs, outside of the box tricks and tips on other chords you can use in your songs besides the 7 chords that are given to you, etc.

Excellent instructor, really knows what he's talking about. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking to learn an instrument or just know how to use programs for recording. Sam knows his material and information like the back of his hand!
