I possess a thorough knowledge of the instrument. I focus on proper technique for all students, regardless of his/her playing ability. Once proper technique is established, I utilize the Berklee Series as a basis for instruction. These volumes are supplemented by exercises, which I write specifically for the particular student's needs. As the student progresses, I incorporate tunes that the student wishes to learn into the lesson plan.

My methods vary from student to student. I realize that some people learn in different ways and I do my best to accommodate my students. I'm a very pattern oriented person so if you prefer diagrams and visuals, I can definitely help you learn. I also have many different tricks and techniques to make something so complex seem much more simple. If need be, I will make personal Word documents for my students that I can email to them so my students have material study and work on even outside of the lesson. My goal in the log run is to teach my students not only how to play an instrument but give them the skills and mindset to pick up another instrument and master it on their own.

Instruments:

I began teaching 5 years ago while living in Austin, TX after the record deal that my project held fell apart. What may have started as an extra way to earn income quickly became a love and a passion. Playing music for people is an excellent way of sharing it, but teaching brings it to an entirely new level. There is nothing quite like seeing a musical newcomer unlock something within themselves that they may have not even realized was there. Over the course of my teaching career I have brought many new performers into the world of music. A couple of my former students have even begun to teach as well. Tempering good practice and learning habits with energetic fun can make for the perfect blend to crafting a new, or experienced, musical mind.

My twelve years as a strings teacher has included both private lessons and public school settings. Many of his students have gone on to be involved in regional orchestras, Houston Youth Symphony, and university orchestras. From 2007 through 2010 orchestras under my care have earned consistent First Division ratings at UIL competitions, including “Sweepstakes” honors in 2008. Other superior and first division honors include those from the Humble Invitational, Pride of Texas and Soundwaves music festivals.

Rhythm Guitar vs Lead Guitar

...for missing out on playing the chords and shapes needed in rhythm guitar playing. A teacher worth their salt will give their guitar students the tools and knowledge to be able to play in both styles. Exclusively focusing on just one style will deprive a student of valuable playing prowess and music theory experience.   Lead Guitar Exercises   For complete beginners wanting to learn how to play lead guitar, I recommend starting by learning how to play a simple chromatic major scale to a strict rhythm provided by a metronome.

Soloing Over "Autumn Leaves"

...so many definitive recordings of “Autumn Leaves”. A quick YouTube search will find you recordings by artists as diverse as Stan Getz, John Coltrane, Chet Baker, Nat King Cole, Barbara Streisand, Eric Clapton, etc. But no recording of “Autumn Leaves” is as definitive as Cannonball Adderley’s recording from his album entitled “Somethin’ Else”. I highly suggest you check that recording out if you haven’t already. And learn the introduction. I remember learning and improvising over “Autumn Leaves” in high school. I can remember a specific instance of recording myself soloing over the changes. I wish I could find that recording to listen ... Read More

The higher the Wattage, the louder the sound of the amplifier, however there is a big difference in volume between a digital amp of a certain Wattage and a tube amp of the same. The tube amp will typically be much louder than the digital amp, even if they have the same amount of power.   Effects   Effects are very important to most guitar players, particularly electric guitarists.

...achievement.   During group class, the instructor leads the kids in playing different repertoire pieces – usually as preparation for the final concert at the end of the week. The group class is also a fun time to play through familiar pieces, or, for some students, to listen to pieces they haven’t reached yet and just itch for a chance to try the next one in the book. Group class is when some teachers are really creative: can you ‘name that tune’ from the book when the teacher just plays the opening notes? Or what about the penny on the shoe trick? ... Read More

Loosen Up to Understand Rhythm

...If you just started studying music again, and your only prior experience was in very formal education, you probably learned the performance conventions expected of classical musicians. If you go to watch an orchestra, you’ll notice that the musicians move very little during the performance, save for those parts of their bodies that actually manipulate their instruments. In fact, watching the perfectly synchronized bows of the violin section, the slides on the trombones and the other motions that musicians make is one of the visual appeals of seeing an excellent orchestra.   It can be very difficult to learn to count rhythm, however, when you ...

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.
