About Umanand K.

Hi, my name is Umanand and I am a guitarist, bassist, producer, and educator. I recently graduated from Berklee College of Music with a BA in Professional Music. I have been teaching guitar to students for years prior to Berklee. While at berklee I was an academic tutor and helped other students with the Music Theory, Arranging, Ear training, and Technology curriculum. I also gave lessons and small private clinics while at Berklee. I have experience with all ages from 4 to 50 years old.

My method of teaching is very easy to follow. I have been told I have an ability to simplify and organize very complicated topics into very understandable information. I am good with people and I study thought, and how the brain works. I will be able to learn your learning style quickly and adapt to it.

If you want the best music lesson you've ever had, sign up for a lesson with me! I guarantee you'll come back for more!

Umanand was not my first tutor, but he was the first to teach me. He taught me to enjoy guitar and how to make music of my own. He knows a lot about how music works and taught me good habits, like reading sheet music instead of tabs and proper guitar posture. He built up my knowledge of the basics and encouraged me to do what felt right within them. Since he taught me, I've learned a few rock songs, but I enjoy my own music much more.
