Certificate, The Guitar Institute of Technology, Hollywood,Ca. Certified Instructor, "The Lydian Chromatic Concept Of Tonal Organization" copyright George Russell
I enjoy sharing my musical knowledge to students so they will advance in their musical aims. In 1983, I attended The Guitar Institute of Technology and studied privately with Frank Gambale, who formalized the single line "sweep technique" on guitar. While in L.A. I also studied with Ed Mann, longtime Frank Zappa percussionist and teacher at Cal. Arts. In Boston, I became assistant to George Russell on the revision of his 1953 copyrighted and published book "The Lydian Chromatic Concept Of Tonal Organization" released in 2001. My projects included musical transcription and analysis (based on the Lydian Concept), editing, making corrections and proofreading. I also was a Teacher Assistant on this subject at The New England Conservatory of Music under George Russell's direction.
I have taught guitar, drums and music on and off over the past 30 years. From children to seniors and ages in between, I say practice makes perfect! As a teacher I encourage my students to progress. I learned so much from my great teachers, I experienced being a student myself! I am learning all the time. As a student I learned a lot, so in turn I enjoy teaching what I have learned.
I draw from a wealth of numerous musical resources. I believe in facilitating healthy technique as it is the foundation of the physical aspect of playing. I combine this with the theoretical essentials, learning scales, intervals, reading music, improvising and conceptualizing. I advocate these aspects subject to the needs of the student.
I love music so much, that teaching it too is rewarding. I have the ability to customize my lessons for each student, as they sometimes process musical information differently. To see a students musical goals evolve is the aim of my lessons. It is important to understand the interests of the student, and the ability to teach the right information based on those interests.
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.
