Folk, pop, rock - I focus on chord progressions, strumming and finger-picking. I like to teach a bit of music theory along the way so that you can learn to arrange and transpose. I can help singer/ songwriters with guitar arrangements so that accompaniment compliments vocal style.
Well-versed in voice, music theory, popular song styles and poetic writing, I can definitely help you expand in your musical and creative endeavors. I studied voice and jazz arranging at Berklee College of Music, and then earned myÂ Master's of Music degree in music composition from Cal State LA. I have sung pop, jazz and theatre music in Los Angeles, New York, and across the US and Canada. I've appeared on the Jay Leno Show, and have sung in many local music venues, such as the Troubadour and Luna Park. I have won multiple awards for my songs in internationally acclaimed "I HATE MUSICALS" - a short film musical (now on iTunes). My musical theatre works has been been presented in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago. I am a proud member of CMASH, a composer collective in San Francisco,
I'll teach you to play the music you want to play while learning the skills to be a great guitarist.
I believe that if you want something, you have to go for it. I encourage my students to pursue their passions with music and reach as far as they dare imagine. I act as a resource and a guide, helping my students to find their way to their music goals. *** Lesson Details *** I give my students a laid back, fun-loving atmosphere that offers as many challenges as they are up to. Students will dive into their favorite types of music, learning techniques pulled from their favorite songs. We will laugh together, work through frustration together, and make wonderful music together. I offer my students the opportunity to push themselves toward their passions and give them the tools to succeed. *** Studio Equipment *** I have a room set up in my home with music stands and seating.
Obviously also depending on your specific goals and experience, besides learning your favorite songs, we'll probably discuss techniques, theory and creating music yourself (improvisation/songwriting).
I can also provide helpful advice on guitar related aspects like sound/equipment, instrument setup /maintenance and recording.
Whether you're a beginner or more advanced, age 5 or 50, in my experience, with even a little bit of practice each day anyone can learn to play. Maybe your goal is to simply learn to play your favorite songs or maybe you want to learn to write your own music, improvise, or perform live. Like all good things in life, there are no shortcuts, and learning the guitar takes time and effort, but in return you get the ability to express yourself through music, which is one of the most rewarding skills anyone could ever learn, at any age and in any situation. My main focus is on helping you reach the point where you are actually playing music, instead of endlessly going over exercises or theory. I want you to be able to play music you would enjoy listening to, because this is when you ...
