I try to strike a balance between music lessons being serious and being fun.  I expect my students to practice almost every day and I expect that the parents will be part of keeping them accountable for scheduling that practicing.  Lessons are a combination of learning technical skills and learning songs, which usually are mostly classical songs with a few contemporary songs thrown in for motivation.

I am a passionate instructor who brings real life playing experience to every lesson. I have been playing bass and guitar since I was six years old. I have played classical, jazz, rock, reggae, and funk music on stages around the world. Currently I can be found gigging several nights a week around the Minneapolis area's finest venues, such as: the Fine Line, Famous Daves, and the Dakota. Wether it is jazz bass in a classy venue, or greasy guitar lines in a dancehall, I bring passion and joy to every note played.

Every student is different! Each lesson plan is designed to meet the individual students needs.  Beginners - Learn the basics in a fun applicable way! By learning tunes and exercises that feel like songs. I also use Hal Leanord's Guitar Method to introduce chords, notation, and sight reading.  Intermediate - Take your basic knowledge to the next level! Soloing techniques and more complex rhythmic ideas will be introduced, along with a introduction to new artists, giving the student a new variety of potential songs to learn!  Advanced - There's nothing better than seeing a student exceed to their full potential! I can help the advanced student reach the next level in whatever genre that may be! Jazz, shred, country, whatever he or she would like to pursue.

Instruments:

I was introduced to teaching during my teenage years in order to form my own band. I have experience in teaching people from the age of 5 to 40+. The most important parts of learning is understanding the instrument you are playing, also being comfortable and excited about what you are playing. In my years of teaching I have learned so much about myself and have become a much better musician by teaching all I have learned over my decade of playing music. I feel strongly that every person can create their own music.

Instruments:

My teaching experience can be dated back to high school, where I taught friends and family after school or in the summer. I started to take teaching music lessons seriously within the last couple of years. I love passing this onto my students and giving them the tools to succeed on guitar. I can see from the results of my teaching, that consistency is key. Every time we are having a lesson, I teach the student a new concept and elaborate on their prior knowledge. I enjoy giving them a professional approach with care. I've learned from all my experience, that you can never stop learning because "If you're not improving, then you're going backwards in progress".

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...

...Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas starting topping the late Baroque charts. 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

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.
