I am an established performer having played in such bands as Big
Damn Crazy Weight, Bring Back Dad and most recently, guitarist for
Shadow and Ash. I studied Music Theory at New Mexico State University with the amazing Dr. Don Hardisty and Composition with Dr. Warner Hutchison. I am passionate about music and love and explore every genre with equal interest, though I am known personally for my hard rock bands. If you want to learn how to REALLY play guitar or bass,I am the teacher for YOU!
*** Lesson Details ***
Don't let your instrument control YOU! Learn to control IT.
What I WILL teach you: A series of exercises designed to make you hands become connected to your mind and allow you to play the music you hear in your head. These are tried and true exercises that made me the guitarist I am today.
I will also teach you to understand Music Theory and Composition. You will learn the WHY behind the music you love and comprehend it on a different level!
Rather than just teach you specific songs, I will teach you to understand the guitar so you can easily teach yourself any song you want to play. You will also learn how to take a song in one genre and remake it in your own style. As you progress, you will learn advanced Music Theory in and enable your own ability to write music of your own.
Knowledge is power, the power to control your instrument and make the music you have always wanted to make!
Let's teach you to ROCK!
