Adam T. Tucson, AZ

About Adam

I have been writing and performing music since he was 15. Along the way I have played or recorded with numerous notable bands including Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees George Clinton and Parliament Funkedic, and members of Bob Dylan's band. In classical music, I have learned music composition under Dan Asia at the University of Arizona and East Indian Classical music from master musician Ali Akbar Khan at the Ali Akbar School of Music. I have been teaching lessons in guitar, vocals, banjo, and harmonica for 15 years. My lessons are always focused on whatever style the student is most interested in, yet still incorporate a dose of music theory and other styles to help inspire well rounded musicians. I can teach to any age, in any genre, as well as help with songwriting, performance ...

I've been taking lessons from Adam for about six months now, and his lessons have helped me out tremendously. I'd taken lessons before elsewhere for about a year and a half, but I felt that my progress and improvement had stagnated and that I needed to go in another direction. Adam has helped me view music in a different light when it comes to both technique and composition, aiding me to grow both musically and in skill. Thanks Adam!

Harmonica · In studio
Verified Student
My husband and I started our not-quite four and a half year old son with harmonica lessons with Adam in February of this year. Our motivation was not to create a prodigy musician, just to give our son a unique and fun experience with an instrument we enjoy the sound of. We, Adam included, were a bit skeptical as to how far we could take the harmonica with a four year old. Adam however, rose to the challenge, creating a lesson plan that matched our son's ability, motivation and attention span. He started off with simple tasks, such as making sure the numbers on the harmonica were facing up before playing (i.e. getting our son to hold his instrument properly). Such a simple task but perfect for pumping up a four year old's confidence and psyche before starting each lesson. As the lessons got more and more involved, Adam consistently stuck to one very important element: keeping it fun. And now 3 months later, thanks to Adam's outstanding teaching ability and unmatched creativity, I'm ecstatic to report that my son can play a real no-kidding blues shuffle. He's not just blowing sounds out of his instrument, he's making actual music; music that makes one want to tap a foot to. My husband and I couldn't be happier with our experience with Adam. He has far exceeded our expectations. We (and especially our son) are looking forward to continued learning on the harmonica with Adam.

Scott K. Tucson, AZ

From Microphone selection and placement to post-production mixing and editing in Protools.

About Scott

As a composer I have found it necessary never to stray too far from performance. The shear exhilaration one can obtain through playing an instrument is unique and powerful. I have devoted my life to trying to understand and master this elusive beast we call Music. As a child, of a peculiar spirit, I demanded my parents get me guitar and piano lessons. I felt an instant connection to these instruments and was compelled to investigate. After years of inquiry I ended up attending New School for the Arts, a high school devoted to the arts where I studied music composition. From there, I went on to the University of Arizona to receive degrees in Music Composition and Philosophy with minors in Mathematics and English Literature. For my Masters' programs I wondered into the world of ...

Learning to play the piano as been pleasant and engaging!

When I first starting taking lessons with Scott I had never taken piano lessons or even knew how to play. Scott knows classical piano music very well and introduced me to great piano pieces for beginners to get started on learning how to play. The lessons will move at your pace and the challenge will never be no more than you can handle. Now I will most likely make it a long term goal to get better and better thanks to his help.

I wish I had much more time with Scott

I have only had two lessons, and now find that I have to take a hiatus because of my partner's health. We will be going to California for 3 months of proton radiation therapy for his cancer.Scott has been really terrific with me. He is patient, kind, and has opened new avenues in my understanding of music. I will continue to work on the things he as taught me. I expect that when I get back into the lessons, I will need to start over because there isn't a piano in California for me to practice on. I know that Scott will take this into consideration when this happens. I think Scott is terrific. If you are considering piano lessons, then check him out.
Ray F. Tucson, AZ

I have a 24 track home studio and have produced 2 children's Cd's and numerous country /folk projects. i am not , however, really up on pro tools.

About Ray

I grew up in a musical family in Tucson, where my dad was a high school choir teacher for 25 years. I had the privilege to be in his choirs for 2 years! I attended Northern Arizona University studying music education/performance 3 years (music scholarship), Pima College music ed. 1 year. This included 3 hours per semester of private voice. Basically a different language every semester (French, Italian, German). During this time I formed an acoustic folk/rock duo night club act and played around Tucson for several years. Then I moved to L.A. to pursue my dreams. There I played beach clubs in another duo. I also was a studio singer and produced and sold a couple of jingles. I have been a staff singer with Arizona Opera since 1992. I have been in 80 + productions/600+ performances. I just ...

mr. ray is an awesome teacher!

Mr.Ray is the music teacher at my sons' daycare and has been for the last seven years plus.His performance and ability to keep the children interested in the program is amazing! My oldest son Mikey has been at the daycare since he was a year old and is now seven and still gets excited about the annual christmas program.My youngest son Malachi loves mr. ray and talks about him endlessly when he visits the daycare.I believe he is the one who got Malachi so interested in playing the guitar! He is definitley the best and most patient music teacher we've seen and I intend on signing Malachi up as soon as he turns five!

About Ian

Hi! Thanks for taking a look at my teacher profile. Here's a little bit about me and how I can help you become the musician you want to be. I started playing the guitar at age 17. I was being paid to play guitar and hand drums for dance classes at his college by the age of 19, and was hired on to the guitar faculty of the Fairmount School of Music at the age of 24. I realized that I'd gotten good only partially through short bursts of discipline lasting up to 6 weeks or so before I had to relax and just have fun for a while, and that for most people, year-round discipline was impossible due to temperament or other demands on people's time. These observations led me to boil down a teaching approach I summarize like this: "The more you have your guitar in your lap, the better ...
