I enjoy writing and playing classical, electronic, rock, jazz, folk, punk, and experimental music. In my free time I like to bend circuits. *** Lesson Details *** When you take lessons from me expect to be inspired and pushed. I thoroughly love teaching music and want the best for my students. I try my best to involve and invite students to join or listen to live music ensembles, recitals, and performances of different genres. I teach all styles of music for voice, piano, and guitar. I am very diligent with practicing, teaching you how to practice, and keeping track of it. In 3 or 6 months you will have a basic understanding of music theory and a solid foundation of piano, voice, or guitar techniques. I thrive to boost self esteem and confidence in all the students that I teach. I also teach composition, students really enjoy writing their own songs and performing them. *** Travel Equipment *** I can provide a guitar. I expect students that want voice or piano lessons to have some kind of keyboard in working condition. *** Specialties *** As a member of of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) and New York State Music Teachers Association. I am able to give your students great resources and opportunities to enter competitions. *Pro Tools certified user *Have taught Grammy Nominated singer
