My philosophy is that everyone is musical to some degree and that anyone can be taught to play music. Not everyone can be taught the same way, however, and it takes a highly skilled, creative, intuitive and patient teacher to do that. I customize my teaching to the student.  I use several different method books depending on the age, ability and learning style of the student. For guitar, I teach note-reading in standard notation so that the student can take what he learns to any other instrument later. I teach notes, chords, scales and basic music theory. Depending upon ability and interest, I teach improvisation and solo playing. At that point, I often add tablature since so much music is written in tab. For those who want to mostly play chords, I teach all types of rhythm accompaniments and fingerstyle.

My approach to teaching music is essentially a synthesis of my formal music education and a distillation of what I have learned from my experiences gigging.  While a fluency with music notation is a great benefit and a necessity for some styles, a bassist will not work without the ability to make the music feel good.  This feel can only be achieved through developing one's sensitivities to pitch and time.  This is best achieved through transcription of examples of the style chosen for study.

Recent transplant to Birmingham – glad to be back in the south. Twenty years of playing experience, and 10+ years of teaching experience. Looking forward to working with you! I've played in churches for the better part of twenty years. I've also played in restaurants for several years, and at weddings and other special events. I can teach lessons in your home or at the Avon Theater (in Lakeview, near St. Vincent's).

I savor every opportunity to bring my passion for playing guitar to each teaching session. My aim is always to develop each student's strengths and weaknesses in playing; developing their knowledge of the instrument and music; develping their creativity in approaching different types of musical expression; thereby, increasing their love of the instrument and music. I approach teaching with an emphasis on developing a student's ear for music, carefully balanced with learning practical, rudimentary knowledge and musical theory for effective, well-rounded musical development. I teach students how to practice smarter and more efficiently with the time they have available in their own schedules. I believe that good, consistent practice is the key to truly developing a student's musical abilities and potential. I also like to develop each student's abilities to perform in various musical settings: playing along to musical tracks; developing their ear; performing with bands; playing solo excursions; and enhancing their ablities and potential for bringing their skills to potential, future sessions.

I teach by example as i would not expect a student to be able to do something that i cannot do myself. I always try to work on things slightly out of the students grasp to keep them interested and engaged. We then periodically address the fundamentals of each task or excercise.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
