|My Teaching Background|
Have you ever wondered how musicians make it look so easy?
First you gotta practice. Then you have to understand.
By "understanding" I mean be able to really visualize how the musical
system works. This is NOT taught in traditional classes. I have an effective
curriculum that can help 99.9% of folks "get it".
I have been teaching privately for 17 years. I also possess a degree in
Jazz Studies. I teach Rock, Blues, Jazz, Country, and many other styles.
I even teach 'stark' beginners... Actually by being a beginner you have
an enormous advantage.
This is because I can steer you away from all the deep musical rabbit holes
that I fell in myself during the last 30 years (which take years to crawl out of).

I also played shows opening for alternative bands including: Social
Distortion, Gregg Ginn (black flag), Firehose, The Buck Pets, The Verve,
Beck, Juliana Hatfield Trio, and The Smashing Pumpkins. After playing
professionally for many years, I found my real passion was teaching music
to those who wanted to know my secret. If your wondering what the 'secret'
is, it is a musical concept I only share with my students thus preserving my
market demand (lol).

I generally teach 6 and up (you're never too old but maybe too
young). Sometimes an age exception can be granted depending on temperament.
Over 17 years of streamlined development went into my
curriculum. I feel it ensures an easy understanding of the
musical system and how it fits together. The new perspective
(or secret) quickly helps students to want to practice more and
also empowers them to explore the musical landscape with
confidence and have fun while they get better.

Instruction Levels Taught: => Beginner to Advanced
According to statistics 80% of people learn more effectively
through visual representation of concepts. I make good use of
colored diagrams and other visual props to ensure thorough
comprehension. I try and stay away from "cookie cutter"
approaches as they don't take into consideration dispositions
in learning that students may have.
I can tailor each students lesson to their own goals and in
addition, I have developed a very effective curriculum over
years of teaching and all needed materials (ie. books/cd's)
are included in the cost of the lessons.
Our Instructors teach 6 days a week. Mon-Fri from 2pm to 8/9pm,
Saturdays 10am to 5pm, and we are closed on Sundays.
I look forward to helping you reach your musical goals quickly and easily.
We'll see you at lessons!
