Overview:
I have been playing professionally for over 40 years and have taught music for 30.  I enjoy teaching people to play or sing music because it is a gift to be given and received.  I can also assist with orchestration or arranging instruments into a group format for performance.  I can teach anyone with an interest to learn and do so on a regular basis.I have taught country, blues, modern, metal, classical, folk music, jazz, etc. I am also active in the community serving as a R.A.C.E.S. emergency communicator at local public events.
EXPERIENCE
My teaching experience dates back to my college days as a music major. I have given music lessons for over forty years. I also have played all kinds of professional music venues for over 40 yrs. I have performed with Sonny & Cher, The Byrd’s, Dion Warwick, Little Anthony & The Imperials. I have also appeared on the following TV Shows: 9th St. West, Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, & The Robin Seymour Show. I am the Co Author of the song “Ali Baba”, and one of the original members of “Dave & The Customs” Surf Band. I have also worked in business as a manager and understand people very well. Music is Divine.
METHODS USED
I use Alfreds guitar method books for guitar and bass.  Piano I use the Bastian and others.  I teach from both my song books, and by thier cd or audio tracks.  I teach each student individually and move them forward to performance level. I teach how to read music and music ear training.  Theory training is also available at lessons as needed. Once I get the student past the basics on to intermediate level, I can listen to cd or audio recordings and reproduce the instrumental part on the spot. I am a fluent note reader as well which helps me during lessons..
LESSON STYLE
Professional but fun. First we review the last couple of lessons, and then we do new- building upon what we have done earlier. Each student is unique, and I teach to them individually. I call it my Individual Music Program! I really get a kick out of seeing my students learn and progress along the musical staff, as the month go on., Often times I will get a brother and sister for lessons teaching them to play music together and become comfortable performing for family members and the public. I am a very positive individual and reinforce each students abilities on an ongoing basis. MUSIC IS FUN.

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
