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.

Instruments:

I enjoy using popular method books designed to help develop technique at the student's specific level. I also particularly enjoy creating my own exercises that may more beneficial to a student's specific technique development. Being a bass/rhythm guitarist, I place a lot of value on tempo and rhythm accuracy, and other key elements to being able to play successfully with others. I believe technique development to be of vital importance and approach it on a student by student basis.

Instruments:

I started to teach guitar lessons when I was still on the second year of my bachelor studies and I began with classical guitar lessons. For 9 years, I was teaching individual guitar lessons full time in the music school in Serbia. Students from my class won many prizes on state and international competitions and festivals. Some of them continued their musical education on music academies in the country and abroad. Since I came in the USA, I have gained 3 more years of experience of teaching group guitar class at the University, beginner and advanced. That makes totally 12 years of experience as a teacher. Teaching was always important aspect of my career and I realized that I have become better performer since I started to teach. So far my youngest student was 6 and the oldest 65.

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.

Instruments:

Hello! My name is Raphael. I am a passionate guitarist. Since the age of six I have been involved with music. Singing lead me to learn guitar. For the past ten years I have been performing with various bands in Colorado and Minnesota. I continue to take guitar lessons and sharpen my teaching skills. I have created, compiled ad produced a CD of my original music. I consider myself more of an inspirational mentor than a teacher. During our initial meeting I work with the individual to clarify his or her personal goals which includes the guitar. Understanding the student’s motivation greatly enhances his or her state of being happy, healthy and successful. We may revisit the goals as needed. My playing experience and vast knowledge of music material and aides will be utilized to match appropriate expediting goal achievements Opportunities to learn sight reading and how to memorize, as well as, develop skills in song writing and improvisation. Students are encouraged to bring his or her own material. Ample time and direction can be given to prepare for any type of performances. Bottom line is that my demeanor is of encouragement with a wholesome approach to life with your guitar.

...spots around the keyboard.     Now let’s go through how to build Diminished chords. Go back to Middle C and build a C Minor chord. With your pinky, move down to a Gb. The interval between C and Gb is a Tritone, and it provides the dissonance you hear in diminished chords. All Diminished chords are built off of a formula of the root-minor 3rd-Tritone (which is six half steps away from the root). Try playing Diminished chords at different spots around the piano.   Extended Chords   Once you know how to build basic chords, you’ll need to understand extended... Read More

Types of Ukuleles

...There are many types of ukuleles available in the world today. They come in different sizes, pitch ranges, and distinct styles to give them all a unique sound. Some ukulele craftsmen experiment with different woods, metals, and plastics to change the sound of the instruments, too. The first major difference you will find in different types of ukuleles are their size. Traditionally, ukuleles come in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. The most common types of ukuleles are the soprano and concert, but this does not mean the other sizes do not have their merit.   Soprano Ukulele Soprano is the smallest size of ukulele available.

Principals of Basic Drum Beats for Rock, Part 1

...speak of a ‘drum beat’, we are typically referring to the main pattern a drummer plays in a given song (which in most rock and pop will typically be treated as a written part, to be played more or less the same in each performance, as differentiated from that of a jazz drummer, whose job tends to be more fluid and improvisatory, though not without its own standard patterns). The terms ‘beat’, ‘drum beat’, and ‘rock beat’ are often used interchangeably to refer to this pattern, and this pattern is generally recognized as the backbone that articulates the ‘beat’- in the larger sense- for the listener ...

Jazz Exercises for Saxophone: Intermediate Studies in 12 Keys

...the ii-V-I progression wherever you can find it (which will be many places). I highly recommend using the digital patterns, the common resolutions, and a combination of these two approaches over several jazz standards. For starters, I recommend playing over the blues, any rhythm changes (“I Got Rhythm”), “Autumn Leaves”, “How High the Moon”, “Solar”, and, if you’re looking for a challenge, “Cherokee”. These tunes are filled with ii-V-Is. “Cherokee” hits seven keys in one song.     Another way to practice the digital patterns and common resolutions over the ii-V-I progression is to run through the ii-V-I progression in ...
