EXPERIENCE
I have been teaching Bass/Guitar/Drums/Keys in private lessons for many years. Currently I am teaching at the School of Rock in Wexford, Pa. I spent 2 years teaching at the Baltimore School of Rock as well. I have been successful in my music career and Want to give back to those who are hungry to learn to be a musician, as well as playing the instrument. I teach at each persons current level. Initially I like to get them playing actual songs instead of beginning with a music math class. I am committed to my students and teach each at their current skill level.
METHODS USED

For my beginning students, I teach the INstrument first. What each knob does, the names of the strings and the names of every note on the Bass/Guitar/Keyboard.The Major and Minor scales come next but examples of each are played for the student so that the color of the scales become familiar. I teach how to communicate with other musicians. Charts, Tabs and Nashville number systems are included. A full knowledge of the instrument and how it is used and played is my goal for each student. Keeping their individual gifts and approaches to the instrument must be recognized and enhanced.

LESSON STYLE
Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a students desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs. By having them begin by playing songs, they develop a desire to go further.
