Overview:

I am a Music Processional the same amount of time since I am a teaching professional. I have been teaching private lessons since I was 22 years old and loving to build great musicians that are performing today. I studied guitar under the auspices of both Larry Coryell and Sal Salvador who are prominent jazz musicians that are well versed in all styles of music. I have transgressed their teaching techniques that I have brought to my students young and old. On my piano, I have studies with John Mohegan in jazz, Classical studies, teachers David Barnett and John Rook. I do assessments with all of my new students and make learning fun, It is important that practice is consistent from day to day. If there are any questions you wish to discuss please let Musika get in touch with me and schedule a telephone conversation for your trial lesson. Many Thanks. Even though I have an expertise in guitar, I play and teach jazz piano and classical as well. Songwriting, arranging and recording. Being a band director in the past, I have extensive knowledge on all band instruments. My instruments of choice I would like to teach are guitar, piano, bass, Strings including Cello and Upright Bass, Clarinet, Percussion. My hope is to take lessons with me because I have extensive knowledge of instrumental music for37 years

EXPERIENCE

My teaching with experience is quite vast. I have taught music in both the classroom, as a band and choral director. I taught Music History, Theory, Global Music that is music from all Countries. I have taught and facilitated Music Classes with fellow Musicians throughout the State Of Connecticut which included Private Lessons and Ensemble playing. My training as a music teacher is expansive as I have a Masters Degree with a 3.4 in my complete studies. As a performer, I have played many years, many venues and I am known as a professional Stylist in whatever performing I did. I played with the likes of Felix Cavelier, Charlie McPherson (Jazz), A Beachboys review band that toured with many groups as a back up band. Directing, Teaching, Recording, Performance has always been prevalent in my musical make up I want to share with students as well teaching performance as well.

METHODS USED

My methods are widespread from conventional and modern methods using a combination of note reading, Improvisation using the Larry Carlton method and the Oscar Peterson Piano methodology. I wrote my own guitar book and have many styles of music that I teach. Very important that the student understands what they have to practice and I make sure they understand what is to be done. Using the Bastien and Alfred series on piano, All for Strings on any String instruments. My guitar book I wrote, Mel Bay, Sal Salvador String Studies and chords are taught from beginning through advanced. There are so many methods that I have combined after all these years and will use them to teach my students to gain knowledge and have fun as well.

LESSON STYLE

I always keep the students in mind with progression and excitement constantly. The throwback from week to week will give both the student and teacher a insight what has to be improved and advanced. I have many students playing professionally in bands and orchestra's as well. Each student has individual needs that will be in conjunction with the personality of the student a great rapport with both of us or group I am working with. Fundamentals are and present a firm foundation of learning pertaining to all students.
