I've been teaching in one form or another for over 20 years. I ahem also had some really fun mentor relationships as well. One in particular in Mt. Juliet TN. A young man I met at age 10 and is now 21 years old. He had released three records since we first met. I'm very proud of Zach. I've played guitar on over 30 recordings and played over 1,000 shows/concerts. I've charted on the Billboard Chart and my current pop/rock single is #1 in Europe and U.K. on the Euro Indie Top 200!

Playing any instrument takes hard work and passion. Everyone has thier own style and gift. The philosophy is just as important as the technique. My approach is about discovering the style and passion within the player. The technique will come with practice. Read More

At the age of 17, I flew to Hollywood, CA to attend Musicians Institute where I studied Bass Guitar Performance. Learning from and playing with some of the best musicians in the business was amazing. I left school to hit the road with my first professional band. I spent the next 20+ years writing, recording and touring all over the country. I was lucky enough to be in a few bands that landed indie recording contracts, which allowed me to tour nationally doing original music, with songs I had written being played on radio and on TV shows across the country.

At that age, it's all about their goals, since the students are self-sufficient and able to decide what's best for their goals on their own. As far as method books go, I like Hal Leonard's Essential Elements (I've used those methods a lot when teaching middle school band) for young students, Hanon's exercises and Bela Bartok's Mikrokosmos for intermediate piano, and trips to Guitar Center for adult guitarists (I'm serious: John Petrucci has a great method for Rock Guitar, for example).

If you play more than one instrument, how did you decide to start playing the second? (Or 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc)!
After playing guitar for about 5 years, I realized that my creativity was being limited by my ability to play only one instrument. I wanted to compose songs using multiple instruments as tools. I picked up piano next, and that changed everything. I loved it! From then on I wanted to learn as much as I could about the instruments that compose the core of all music - guitar, bass, drums, and piano.
What is your favorite style/genre of music to play and why?
I have several favorite styles of music. I love the power and aggression of rock, metal, and rap music. I also love the expression, tonality and emotion in blues, indie and pop music. It's a wide spectrum!
What does a normal practice session look like for you?
A normal CH practice session includes a healthy mix of fun and technique. We will go over exercises and other formal methods of practice first, then incorporate those methods into jam sessions where we just play music, express ourselves and have fun. I have found this to be the most effective way to teach music because it is the way that music is meant to be experienced.
What do you think is the hardest thing to master on your instrument?
Technique and rhythm. Learning these traits takes more than simple exercises and practice methods. You need both experience and comfortability with your instrument, which only comes through playing - a lot!
Did you have a teacher that inspired you to go into music? How did they inspire you?
I had several teachers that inspired me to become a musician. My dad was the first person to put a guitar in my hands. He wanted me to learn how to express myself creatively. My first music teacher also inspired me greatly. He taught me that learning music isn't about numbers and chord progressions, it's about expressing yourself and having fun. That philosophy has molded me into the music loving art creator that I am today!
When will I start to see results?
The time that it takes to see results will vary, and that's okay! You should focus more on giving your child or yourself the time to learn the right way, while having fun. Music is not meant to be a chore. It is art and art is all about individualistic expression! So take your time on your journey. If you're practicing, you're going to see results!
How do I know if my child is ready to start lessons?
If your child is old enough to read and write, your child might be ready for lessons! Being able to read and write generally ensures that your child will be able to understand some of the more complex aspects of music. There are exceptions, of course. For example, if your child can read and write but shows no interest in music whatsoever, it might be a good idea to wait until they are older.
What advice do you have about practicing effectively?
Here's a secret key to effective practice - taking breaks. Try practicing your instrument for 30 minutes, then taking a 10 minute break to relax and unwind. Taking breaks increases the likelihood that the information will stick, and prevents you from getting burned out!
