I am a guitar instructor based in Los Angeles. I have more musical instruments than furniture in my house. I regularly perform in a number of ensembles in the area. I'm involved with a local gamelan ensemble (Indonesian percussion music), the Elizabeth Waldo Orchestra, and the Music Center of Los Angeles as an artist educator.

I like to use a varied method for every individual student. I like to take the first lesson to feel out what they may already know or not know, their personalities, what learning methods may or may not work with them, etc. One thing that I teach to all of my students is music theory, no matter what level they may be at musically. After the first lesson, I put together a lesson plan that will work for the student that will include worksheets, exercises from a book for their instrument that I will pick out, and a piece for them to practice that either I will pick based on their level of playing, or that we pick together. No matter the level they are at, I like to keep things open and fun. Different musical activities, stickers or little prizes will be given out to acknowledge their achievements. I would also like to film the students playing the piece(s) they have been practicing to post on the website to showcase their progress, with the permission of the parent or guardian of course.

I'm fun! I am not a bitter musician with a sardonic attitude like so many other teachers. I enjoy music more than just about anything. I know how to make every lesson fun and I will keep you excited and enthusiastic about your own journey. I don't use drugs. I don't drink alcohol. I don't smoke cigarettes. I don't gamble. I MAKE MUSIC AND TEACH OTHERS HOW TO MAKE MUSIC. Females: You do not have to be concerned about being "creeped on". I have been happily married to the same cool chick for over 20 years. My only interest in you is to bring out the best in you. Parents: Your kids are safe with me. I have had decades of experience working with children. Feel free to take a look at my extensive charity work with the Grandsons of Italy. I host and produce annual Christmas parties for mentally and physically challenged children. I work with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) in fundraising and entertainment. I volunteer with the LA Fire Department's "Fill The Boot" program and have dedicated a considerable amount of my time to helping an organization that rescues abducted children. In short, I'm the good guy.

I'm a big believer in making sure each of my students has a solid foundation. From day 1 we discuss the students interests and goals. Picture this if you will; a new house is being built in your neighborhood. How's it being built? From the ground up of course! The same principles are used in my teaching methods. This insures the student is the best they can be, always. Each student will have a customized lesson plan because let's face it we are all unique individuals! I don't just teach the techniques, but also the theory and body mechanics behind them. I make sure all my students can read as well as learn by ear. As we begin to progress the applications are taught using real world scenarios.

For beginning students, I like to start with the basics..step by step mastering of working with both hands and feet individually then together to get into the groove and be able to makes simple basic beats. Once that is done we move on to working the various drums around the kit, listening and getting to know what each piece sounds like and is for. Then we continue to work on grooves, timing, syncopation and all around style.

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.
