Patient, positive-oriented, personalized instruction in Guitar, Bass (upright or electric) and piano.  Modern, holistic lessons in all aspects of music incorporating both traditional knowledge and styles with the latest research in the Psychology of Music. Columbia University, MA: Music and Music Education. Many years of active performance experience. I teach out of Davis, California, just East of Sacramento.  The most important thing is to develop a love for music and the habit with practice. I love to teach. Materials are selected based on the student. Generally I provide well rounded lessons with selected songs, learning to read, understanding music theory and ear training. Guitar students learn how to read, play and understand classical guitar and learn how to play all kinds of songs.  I teach the guitar as a musical instrument, not mechanically so my students learn, understand all kinds of music.  I add natural ear training so everyone's ears improve as well as their singing. Bass students start off learning the bass, how to create melodic, funky bass parts.  I teach them to understand what they are doing, improve their ear and sense of rhythm. Piano lessons are modern, positive oriented, pedagogically organized so the students achieve much success and can learn and play many songs.  I have extensive research and knowledge of the Psychology of Music.  This includes how people learn and the effect of music studies on increased intelligence.  Music studies have been proven to improve academic performance. I also can teach classically trained keyboard players improvisation and how to play in a contemporary ensemble. I will help select  a beginner instrument. Personally, I love to play upright bass in local orchestras and jazz ensembles.  I also play classical, jazz, and rock guitar.  I worked my way through college strictly as a multi-talented musician. I am a health and fitness enthusiast.  I am an environmentalist and love hiking in Northern California.   My special interest in research into the Psychology and Neuroscience of learning to play music.

Teaching is my passion. I love to watch as a young piano student matures into a truly exceptional musician. I love watching children experience that "Aha!" moment when they realize "This is fun!" I've been teaching for the past 5 years at a studio, in charge of, at one point, over 50 piano students, of all ages and skill levels. And I absolutely loved it. From the youngest beginners to advanced adults, every student I've taught has developed a love for the instrument, the same love that I feel. I believe that anyone can learn music and to play this beautiful instrument. If I can do it, so can you! I am very patient and have a great sense of humor! I get along great with children and adults alike.

I believe in focusing individually on every student, to help them achieve their own success. Discipline and self motivation important. I focus on building a solid technical foundation through various technical studies and etudes. I also encourage students to attend concerts, develop basic theory, and to seek/participate in other physical activities such as dance, sports, which would help with developing coordination and strength. Materials:Students are expected to bring all necessary materials to lessons, including their instrument, shoulder rest, rosin, cleaning cloth, music, a notebook, and a pencil.Violins can be rented and necessary materials can be purchased locally at:Watermelon Music Store207 E StDavis, CA(530) 758-4010Students are encouraged to participate in youth orchestra, chamber music, and summer music programs and festivals. The student is expected to consult with the teacher regarding potential programs to ensure that the best decisions are made for the student's education.

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.
