Instruments:

For beginning students we work on the fundamentals of musics such as music theory, rhythmic notation, and techniques. Once the student has comprehend the fundamentals of music then I will introduce solo repertoire appropriate in preparation for a recital performance. In meeting with the adults we go over the goals to achieve and work towards them. I will try to find certain genres of music the student is interest in and focus the lesson of that particular genre. My overall goal is to develop great musicians.

Instruments:

Each lesson is designed specifically with the students’ abilities and challenges in mind as well. For young or beginning voice students, I like to begin with a solid foundation of intonation, body alignment, sight reading, and breath support using beginning level folk songs. The repertoire I choose is specific to each student's short-term goal and stylistic preference. For intermediate students, I focus on tone, coloration, vocal agility, diction, musicality, dynamics and performance anxiety. I am a firm believer in support and encouragement from family, and I insist that parents/guardians of high school students and younger stay informed with what their child is working on. The more supportive their environment, the more growth they experience! For piano students, I love to utilize Faber's Piano Adventures books and sprinkle in popular repertoire once the basics are covered.

Ever since I picked up a guitar at the age of 15, I have been passionate about performing.  Earning a music degree came naturally to me, as I have a great appreciation for all genres of music.  My band, The Hollowmen, and I have performed at several venues around San Antonio as we work to make our mark in the rock-n-roll scene.

Instruments:

For beginning students, I emphasize fundamentals, including technique, sound quality, and reading. With children, I like to start with method books such as Essential Elements or the John Thompson series for piano. For more advanced pupils, I will start with what they are currently working on, find areas for improvement, and then adjust the curriculum accordingly. However, no matter what the students interests or skill level are, I try and keep the lessons light, fun, and interesting!

Writing Guitar Riffs

...to provide predictable and structured harmonic content. Listeners almost always remember riffs but rarely remember chord progressions. Riffs can be played on the electric and acoustic guitars as well as the bass guitar.   Like so many other things in popular music, writing guitar riffs is an aspect of songwriting in popular music that grew out of the blues music tradition in America at the turn of the 20th century. Early blues riffs were written to match the phrasing and character of the human voice. Simple guitar licks that repeated over and over again laid the foundation for heavier and more intricate guitar lines... Read More

...later post- while the bass drum simply plays ‘four on the floor’ (unlike a true bossa nova, which has a more complicated pattern in the bass). Note that while the other beats presented here have been single measure ones, this is a two measure pattern. Leave a comment if you recognize what famous song this one is from! (hint: it’s an ode to a star of early horror film, a pretty unlikely place for a Brazilian beat)   So as you can see, there is a lot still to work with, even within the limited framework of basic rock drum beats we’ve been using so far.

...signal chain. Microphones and Preamplifiers Microphones produce very small electrical impulses which need to be amplified in order to process, hear, and record. This is done with the use of microphone pre-amps. Pre-amplifiers can be analog or digital, and they can be individual units or integrated into a recording device or mixing soundboard.   Once the signal is large enough to work with, it will typically travel through some effects processing units. There are many different types of effects that are used for all different instruments, styles, and situations, but many of the most popular and simple ones are applied ... Read More

Belt Mix Untangled: A 5-Step Guide

...sense of good, natural posture in the body. In order to achieve the best results when you are singing, your body should feel as free and uninhibited as possible.   Set up your breath—take a few large, slow inhales and exhales (keeping the shoulders and neck relaxed!) to get the breath going. A little trick I like to use when setting up my breath is to imagine the origin of my inhale in the bottoms of my feet, and then I inhale up through my legs, torso, spine, and out the top of my head before exhaling completely. Breaths that start low in the body and helps ground ... Read More

Setting Up a Drum Set

...height- some like to sit high, some low- so I’ll give my opinion based on my experience. I believe that the optimal height allows your knees to be directly over your ankles when placed on the pedals, with your thighs more or less parallel to the floor. This allows you to center your gravity on the throne, resulting in all your limbs being free to move independently. From this point, you may need to readjust your snare and floor tom heights based on the aforementioned rim-shot principle.   Hope this has helped you in setting up your drum set; here’s wishing you happy and safe ...

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.
