Sarah Lawrence College, BA in Creative Writing and Music Theory and Composition
I grew up in a musical family and my father was the rhythm guitarist for Michael Jackson for up to 30 years. I recently moved back to Los Angeles after attending The Master's School in Dobbs Ferry, New York, where I began my study in composition and theory. After graduating from the Master's School I went on to graduate from Sarah Lawrence where I continued my theoretical and compositional studies. I am able to integrate theoretical knowledge to basic folk songs. You won't even know you are learning music theory whilst playing along to the Beatles!
I have been teaching since I graduated from college. I have taught indiviudal lessons as well as large groups at performing arts camps. One thing I really strive to maintain is the student's motivation! I figure out where the student's interests remain and hone in so as to keep the lessons refreshing.
For novice players, I generally start with a simple song, usually one by the Beatles but most importantly, a song that the student loves and will feel a great accomplishment learning in order to gain confidence. Then I delve more specifically into technique. Each song should teach a technical lesson!
I hone into each student's area of interest and specify each lesson to the student. That way, the highest level of motivation is maintained in each lesson! I discuss with the student which genre they prefer to learn and which style they'd like to master!
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.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
