Victor P

Instruments:

I am a passionate, innovative and creative musician with vast experience as a teacher, performer and producer. Music has been my life's work and joy since as far back as I can remember. I began my formal musical training at 6 years of age, and in 2004 I graduated from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music with a Doctor of Music degree in Operation of Early Music Programs (Historical Performance).  I also hold an MM in Historical Musicology from Florida State University (1997), and a B.A. in Music from Marylhurst University, Marylhurst, OR (1993).  I have studied and performed most major genres, from the large, classical concert stage, to small clubs and music venues, to open-air festivals both public and private; "From Bach to Rock," if you will. I have also studied various non-Western musics in depth, most notably Northern Indian Hindustani classical music. The different musical perspectives these cultural studies have provided informs and expands the flexibility I like to have in fitting the lesson to the student.  Music is pure joy to me, and beyond the nuts and bolts of musical technique, it's that joy I wish more than anything to share with my students.

Eric T

Instruments:

I have been playing and writing music for 15 years. I began playing guitar when I was 15 years old, and throughout my high school career I played in several different bands. By the time I got to college I performed with a classic rock band and began studying music theory for piano. In Delta State Universities Interdisciplinary program I began to take in a lot of musical knowledge very quickly. I learned many tools including: songwriting, music production, audio recording, synthesis, piano, live sound, mixing and even took a film scoring class where we put music to video which is a lot of fun. Not only did I learn about midi and music industry standards, I also had the opportunity to work with really amazing artists. One of my professors Mike Lacopelli was the recording engineer for Parliament as well as ran live sound for Aretha Franklin for 8 years. Later in my college career I began playing synthesizer with a band and working for Delta State’s Studio. I also worked in their computer lab teaching music software programs to newer students; the software programs included: Logic, Pro Tools and Garage Band. I currently have my own home studio where I run Pro Tools. I perform in a rock band playing rhythm and lead guitar as well as some keyboard/ synthesizer work. We have played many benefit shows as well as paying gigs and we recently released an album that I engineered and produced. I love making music as well as learning and teaching. I love watching others as well as myself grow musically. With every new musical opportunity comes learning and it’s so fun and exciting to think of what is waiting.

Dennis B

Instruments:

My focus is on laying the right foundation for a lifetime of musical enjoyment for the student. I want my students to develop skills in all aspects and styles of playing so that as their preferences evolve they will be equipped for all jandras of performance. However if an adult or intermediate level student wants to specialize I can accommodate them. That's why I suggest they incorporate learn note reading and chord theory to their scope and sequence of study. The emphasis should be on the student's learning and enjoyment of the lessons not just how well the teacher plays. It's also important to look at the teacher's character and values because that greatly influence the student. My specialty is jazz and contemporary worship music.  

Raul R

Instruments:

I am a follower of all things music. I have been playing the guitar for 14 years now. I have been actively instructing professionally for 7+ years and wouldn't trade it for the world. I am well versed in many styles of music as I have been a session guitarist on many albums on Music Row in Nashville TN.  I have a very keen interest in seeing you reach your goals on the guitar or even on the bass!!  Lessons offered for electric, acoustic, and bass guitar!!

More Information About Bass Lessons

A choice that students have when buying a bass is going with either a 4 string bass or a 5 string bass. A 5 string will be most useful if you are interested in heavy metal or hard rock music, as it will allow you to reach lower pitches. As a beginner student, a 4 string bass is a good option. Reliable brands for instruments are Ibanez, Gibson, and Fender.
In home lessons are great for both adults and children alike. Everyone has a busy schedule, and by choosing in home lessons you are making learning an instrument extremely convenient. There is no need to spend time and money traveling to a studio, when you can have the teacher come right to your home. Not to mention, you are then able to learn your instrument in the comfort and security of familiar surroundings, adding to your enjoyment of the lessons!
All of our Musika teachers are highly qulified and able to teach everything the student will need to be successful with their instrument. While no specific teaching method is used by each teacher, if a student has a particular teaching style they are interested in, we will work with you to find a teacher who uses that method. All students will work on reading music, playing with correct technique, and becoming a better musician overall.
Adult students of all skill levels begin lessons with us every day. Our adult students, no matter the skill level, will work with their teacher on customizing their lesson plan so they are able to get the most out of each lesson. All students will work on reading music, advancing their technical playing ability, and their musicianship as a whole.
Bass lessons are a great option for teenage students. By playing bass, students open themselves up to be able to play in ensembles such as jazz band, and other more contemporary groups. Older children and teenagers work better with the bass as it is a large instrument with heavy, thick strings which require hand strenth to play.
