Overview:

I've been playing music since the age of 4, first studying violin and then playing in a symphony orchestra at the age of 12 (Peter Meremblum-Hollywood Calif.) as well as doing TV work on violin. At the age of 15 I began playing guitar, and then worked my way through college playing gigs, traveled Europe with my own band, and joined the Beach Boys as a bassist and guitarist. I traveled the world, performing and recording with them for over 20 years as well as doing session work in L.A. and performing with local artists. I then taught Guitar and Bass Guitar at Yavapai College in Prescott, AZ. As a result of that experience I have written a note reading technical studies manual for the beginning and intermediate guitarist.

EXPERIENCE

I have taught private and group lessons to 1st grade students all the way through Adult Centers that reflect ages 55-80 years. I've had at least three students win scholarships to Berklee School of Music in Boston, all of whom have gone on through a master's program. I have played in Rock, Country, Jazz, and Latin Groups. An original tune of mine was recorded by Elton John to showcase one of his singers. I have played with Steve Miller, Linda Ronstadt, Emmy Lou Harris, Etta James, Ray Charles, John Davidson, Charles Lloyd, Ben E. King, Sonny and Cher. My 15 years at Yavapai College in Prescott, AZ gave me hundreds of students that taught me how to best devise techniques to guarantee their success at playing Guitar and Bass Guitar.

METHODS USED

My Philosophy is "learn how the student best learns". Expose all the students to note reading, ear training, youtube, music theory, improvisation techniques, composition, fingerstyle patterns, tablature, and singing, and then create a program that maximizes their potential and their long term feeling that music is fun and worth doing.

LESSON STYLE

Patience, as well as my depth of experience, are characteristics of my teaching style. I'm as happy as the student is when he or she achieves an understanding of a musical concept or mastery of a physical technique on the instrument. The achievement will reinforce more effort toward the next step, but it must be "relaxed" effort. "Slowly but surely" is my motto as the challenges become greater and the success sweeter.

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.
