I can help you overcome the obstacles of the fret board and keyboard. I plan to support you and find creative ways to help you learn. I will help you read and write music, as it is a language which conveys emotion and energy. I will help you organize your practice approach so you can be efficient and maximize your gains. I have a wide variety of experience learning from top professionals within classical guitar, classical piano, jazz studies, and composition. I play very well by ear. I will help you listen to music and figure out how to transpose and play it.
I have a M.A. degree in Music Therapy. I have worked with children who cant speak, but they can play music. Music bypasses many neural systems. I will help you find the way you learn and challenge you to improve. I run a non profit organization called "School Of Hip Hop PHX," where we use the 5 elements of music (Dance, spoken word, production, art, and knowledge to, improve the lives of community members. I taught 7-8 grade for 5 years, and during this time I gained great experience running talent shows and music productions.
We start with fundamentals of music theory, ear training, and composition. We find the songs and styles you want to learn and then make them make sense, through small assignments, that build into the finished product. If you can see the shapes on the guitar and subdivide the beat into equal parts, we can start to play the tunes you like. I a do not believe in slow progress. i believe you can learn and improve consistently, while having fun. I do plan to help you structure your approach for maximum output.
I studied music with the intention to be the teacher I wanted as a youth. I am kind, patient, and creative. I have perfected a process to where 30 minutes of conceptualization matched with strategic practice, will help you get much closer to your goal, in half the time. why should it take years to master an instrument? The traditional approaches used are good, but people desire to make gains quickly. We will use audio and video recordings to track your progress and serve as a pathway to discovery and advancement.
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.
