Certificate, Diablo Valley College, Music Industry Studies
Hello! I have over 20 years of experience teaching and performing as a guitarist, composer, producer and recording for my band. I live and breath music 24/7 and I absolutely love to share my knowledge with my students. Besides teaching Guitar and theory, I also teach music production as well. I'm officially endorsed by the following brands: EVH (Eddie Van Halen) Gear, Jackson Guitars, Morley Pedals, SIT Strings, InTune Guitars Picks and Line 6.
I have been teaching Guitar/Music Theory for almost 20 years. I have a Certificate of Music Industry Studies from the Diablo Valley College, which was completed in 2014. As for now, I'm a music/composition major at the Diablo Valley College, transferring from a 2 year college to get my bachelor degree. Besides composing for my band, I write orchestrated instrumental music from classical to soundtracks, etc. I believe that each student require a different approach, depending on their level. For example: if they want to be a professional musician, or if they just want to learn music as a hobby. I also believe that music should be fun, no matter the path the student want to follow. And it is my responsibility to find a way to inspire my students.
I believe the methodology shifts depending on the student. I do have a sets of Guitar exercises and a simple method to explain theory that helps students from all levels. I always combine the technical exercises and theory, with some song that's appropriate for the student level. I always to choose something that the student likes to hear. It truly helps, especially students that are beginners, to feel motivated. The focus is always to make it fun for those that are starting, so they can find their passion for it. And for the advanced students, the goal is to help them to reach their maximum potential.
My style of teaching is very simple. I want to see you succeed and for you to be the best musicians they can be. I believe that as more passionate you are about your craft, more disciplined you will be. I will do my best to inspire and help you to find your passion for music.
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
