My training comes from a lifetime of devoted study in the fields of technique, harmony, and applied music theory.
I am a very passionate and devoted musician. I believe that music is extremely important in life. When I was young I struggled with severe depression, and at that point music saved my life. Playing the guitar gave me the tools i needed to express my emotions in a healthy manner, and I wish to share these tools with everyone that I can.
My teaching experience stems from 5 years ago, where I would share whatever knowledge of music i could with those around me. In those five years I have made it my duty to make myself a resource to all musicians around me. I believe that consistent practice, and lessons is the key to success with music. More importantly I in making music a healthy outlet for emotion, and self expression.
For beginning students I start with the basics of music theory, and demonstrating how this theory is used in rock n' roll, blues, and classical depending on what the student is interested. for intermediate students I aim to build upon their knowledge and help them discover more music, and build a greater understanding of music theory. For advanced students I focus on guiding their studies to a greater level through analysis of historically great pieces, the study of harmony, and how to capture and retain the emotional and mental intrigue of the audience.
When I teach I enjoy seeing my students express their emotions through their music, and develope a passion for their instrument. That passion is so very magical, and I aim to encourage this with personalized lesson plans hinging off of the musical stylings of a musicians that my student is interested in so they can begin to build a unique and passionate style of their own. Most of all I believe that its important to have fun with music, which is why I consider improvisation an important part of my curriculum.
