I have been teaching students for over 10 years. In addition to piano, guitar, violin, and double bass private lessons, I have also taught group lessons. I taught a group piano lab for 5th graders. I taught group guitar lessons to camp students. I have been a member of two private lessons instutions who help me find private students on all instruments so that I can travel to students homes or have them come to my home studio.

On every instrument that I teach I place great importance on fundamentals, especially developing a deep sense of rhythm. Whether a novice student is learning basic concepts for the first time or an advanced student is maintaining their musical foundation, a short routine of very simple warmups is essential and is also a beautiful way to connect to the instrument every time we sit down to it.For young beginners on piano and guitar I start with the Faber Piano Adventure series and the FJH Young Beginners series - for young drum students I use Alfred's beginners drum set book. For older students my approach will depend on the interest of the student and will draw on a variety of books/pieces/hand written exercises and ideas.  I will often work with more advanced students to help them develop their own exercises when they have a problem they want to address - it is very valuable to learn to teach yourself your instrument as well!

I first started really getting into music when I was 13 and started playing drums and guitar, picking up piano a couple years later. In 2005 I graduated from the Journeyman Program in Musical Performance at Musicians Institute in Hollywood California. Since then I've been trying my hand at different musical endeavors such as playing in bands, writing my own music, composing for indie games as well as doing covers of my favorite old video game songs. In 2011, I started a YouTube channel with my band,  which performs acoustic guitar duets of popular video game songs. Now we travel around the country performing at various video game and anime conventions.

I can be a band leader and frontman or an instrumentalist in the rhythm section, and I will teach you to be the same!

I let the student decide what the lesson is to be like. There are a lot of things to cover, but I will adapt what I think is the best teaching style for the student based on things like what he or she wants to learn. If you are interested in electronic music production, I can even teach lessons in Ableton Live. I am very well versed in all aspects of pro audio and would love to share and teach my knowledge. I hope you choose me to be your teacher, because I am a fun, caring, and responsible teacher.

...beat (half, quarter, eighth, etc). From this, we can see why the meter known as ‘common time’ is expressed as 4/4: four beats to the measure, with the quarter note getting the beat (four quarters equaling a whole). The vast majority of rock songs are in 4/4, and that is what we will be dealing with in this post.   The beats in a meter fall loosely into stronger and weaker categories. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the strongest beat in the measure is the first, and is known as the downbeat. In 4/4 time, the third beat is recognized as having the next greatest strength, with the 2nd ...
