ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

At this time I do not have any degrees in music.  I learned from other teachers and more importantly, playing with other musicians.   37 years of playing, in fact.  

Overview:

I play both guitar and bass.  Guitar is acoustic and electric, lead and rythym.  Bass is 4 and 5 string. As I have learned from these instruments you have to come from different fields of thought.  They're called guitars but thats where it ends. I love all things music.  I want to share the joy of making and playing music.  When it comes to teaching theory, I always say that if you can count to 8, than you can write a popular song you would hear on the radio.

EXPERIENCE

I have toured the world 5 times and have been on US and Worldwide radiostations, had 3 songs that I co-wrote get submitted for Grammy consideration, have been on 9 albums and performed on several national, international and local TV stations. I have had 14 songs on the airwaves in the last 5 yrs with various bands and performers. Recorded and submitted some music for a couple of upcoming TV shows airing this 2013 season.Currently, I am on hiatus from working with an Award Winning Country Rock artist.  I play on average 160 shows a year.

METHODS USED

I feel that if a student is just banging away at notes without getting the big picture of how everything works it can be frustrating and fruitless. I like to teach as we play a song.  I think you are able to benefit by using the theory and techniques as the song progresses.   I can teach out of a book if the student/parent would prefer. I do customize songs to the age and interests of the student.

LESSON STYLE

I find out what styles a student likes, favorite bands and songs.  Also, what they want to get out of learning a particular intstrument.  Is it for fun, to be on stage and perform, to write songs, etc. Once a student starts seeing how all songs are connected the whole music scene opens up.

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.
