You are here on this website, which means you or someone you know wants to learn music and I am here to make that happen!    Our first lesson will be me figuring out what you want out of lessons. Some questions and us talking for a bit will lead to the necessary information I need to develop a personal lesson curriculum for you.    My goal is to seamlessly intertwine all the fun and beautiful aspects of music with the theory and knowledge that has been around for hundreds of years. I believe in having fun at lessons because music is supposed to be fun!    I also like looking at music as a whole. It may just be a guitar or bass lesson on the outside, but it is really a MUSIC lesson as a whole. Music has always been more than one instrument and our lessons will reflect that. It is not uncommon for us to be learning a song or an idea and take a minute to reflect on another aspect of what's going on if it is of musical importance/relevance. This will help you become not just an excellent instrumentalist, but an amazing musician.    In the end, I can guarantee the lessons to be fun, informative, and unique to you!

I began teaching private guitar in the fall of 2008 at Puyallup's Hi Ho Music Center.  There I built a substantial student base and many of my students continued to take lessons for several years.  One of my student even started teaching at the same store after he graduated from high school, which I took as an indication not only that he learned a great deal from our time together, but that he wanted to give others that same experience. I left the music store studio format to begin teaching at Dace's Rock N' More Music Academy where they offered lessons as well as an ensemble workshop program.  I had developed a passion for rehearsing and wanted to share that with sudents who were just started out in a band. After a year at Dace's I left to persue an opportunity for full-time performance which has had it's own rewards.  Now I'm excited to bringing those jewels of musical wisdom that can only be gained through experience back to the teaching studio!

No single approach works with every student when teaching drums.  There are simply too many styles and methods to choose from.  But when working with beginners, I tend to focus mostly on developing a good internal sense of rhythm and good listening skills. Then if the student wishes, we may specialize in classical, jazz, rock, latin, or whatever style the student is interested in.  There are many excelent published methods to choose from and I occasionally assign etudes and excersizes of my own.

The first half of each of my lessons will address the basics of music theory (i.e. rudiments, scales, etc.) and technique. The second half of each lesson is about having fun! We will dig deeper into the music my student is interested in, considering the songs from a musician's point of view. In dissecting the song we will learn about phrasing, feel, meter, melody, chord analysis, commonalities among styles and the history behind the music. Each lesson is individualized and I develop my curriculum based on the student's needs and interests.

For beginners my method is to simply get them over the initial hurdles that challenge all newcomers to the guitar. For intermediate and advanced players I can take them to a level of discipline and musicianship they have never experienced outside of an academic setting with a world-class teacher/performer.

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.
