Instruments:

Piano:  I prefer Faber Piano Adventures, but I can be flexible if the student is in the middle of another series already.  I have also taught the young beginner series by Faber. Strings:  I use a traditional approach, but I am not tied to any particular method book.  I can supplement whatever is being taught in school or the lessons can stand on their own.  I have taught anywhere from Kindergarten to adult ages. Guitar:  For children, I prefer the FJH Young Beginner Guitar method, but for adults I would prefer Hal Leonard if the student is looking to learn both chords and melody using folk music.  I could also teach guitar based on gospel and Christian praise music if the student prefers.  I have taught students with an interest in rock music, but only to give them the basic foundation skills of chords and notes to build on with another teacher who has more of a rock music speciality.

After we figure out what you want to learn, I'll help you develop your skills so that you can  play rock, blues, jazz or even learn how to solo. I believe that all my students have the ability to express themselves to some degree on the guitar, my goal is to help them as best I can, using my experience and knowledge of the instrument.

What do you want to learn? I encourage all students to convey to me their interests! I can come up with suggestions as much as you'd like, but my favorite lessons are the ones where a student has his or her own goal, and I'm able to help them achieve this goal in some way. We will always have technique exercises and drills to work on, but we'll never lose sight of why we do all this technique building in the first place - to get better at something we love!

Instruments:

There is nothing in the world quite like seeing a students eyes light up when they play their favorite song for the first time. In order to achieve progress there must be a pace established that is special to the student, and at no point should the student ever feel pressured to play something they don't understand. To say teaching has brought joy to my life would be an understatement, and I thank God and my family for this gift of music. I believe we never stop learning and that applies especially to music.

I have great joy in seeing my students succeed! When you succeed, I succeed. Together we are a team! I will correct you on the spot when there is an error, so you don't keep doing an incorrect guitar hand gesture. Skills my students learn with me include sight-reading, discovering new genres and improvisation. The sky is the limit! I will work on your songs (orginal or covers) with you to develop your skills. You are the main focus! I encourage my students to apply for gigs, performances and show cases. Along with providing them performance opportunities. You can bring in a piece of what you will preform and I can provide feedback and grade your performance!

Parts of an Opera: A Quick Beginner's Guide

...should be noted that Peri composed an earlier opera, Dafne, but manuscripts of the music have not survived). Peri included an instrumental “ritornello” at the beginning of the opera; with that ritornello came the first hints of the parts of an opera that would eventually become the full-blown overture.   Monteverdi composed his influential L’Orfeo just a few years later in 1607. He opened with a toccata performed by the trumpet, and this toccata further contributed to the rise of purely instrumental introductions (or overtures) in opera.   It was Jean-Baptiste Lully, a French composer in the first half of...

Alessandro Scarlatti (the father of Domenico) took it upon himself to introduce something new.   He came up with a three section overture in the 1680s, as opposed to Lully’s two. Scarlatti also employed a fast-slow-fast form (perhaps he thought audiences were harder to engage when the slow movement came first). To hear a bit of late 17th century Scarlatti opera that showcases his new overture style, listen to La Rosaura. He wrote it in 1690.   Scarlatti’s Italian Overture style took Europe by storm during his lifetime, and not ... Read More

Jazz Scales: The Diminished Scale

...functions in jazz. In jazz education, we often talk about “chord/scale relationships”. The meaning of this phrase is intuitive. It simply means figuring out how each scale relates to each chord and vice versa. The two diminished scales function in different ways. The “whole/half diminished scale” works over a fully diminished seventh chord. If you look at the scale, every other note is a part of the chord. The notes in-between act as leading tones to the chord tones. The “half/whole diminished scale” works over a dominant seventh with a flat nine and/or sharp nine chord. This is why some people call it the “dominant diminished ... Read More
