Certificate, Atlanta Institute of Music, Guitar Performance
I have been in music all my life, I always try to take some kind lessons constantly because there is always room to improve my skill. I have played in many bands that have performed live. In my current bands I play as lead guitar and lead vocals. I play many types of music in my bands from Rock, Blues, R&B, Country, Reggae, Classical, and Jazz. I have played for churches, bars, and community neighborhoods in the Atlanta area.
I have been playing music my whole life, I played violin up until middle school. I then played saxophone in High school and participated in Marching band, Jazz band, and Honor Band. I then went to Atlanta Institute of Music, and got a degree in guitar performance. I have also been casually playing piano since high school and I am currently taking vocal lessons.
I make lesson plans based on the needs of what the student likes stylistically and where their week points are. I teach Chord shapes and try to get in ear training and music theory as much as possible. The books I use for teaching are; The Christopher Parkening guitar method, Vol 1 and 2 The real book Solo jazz guitar Foundations of Rock: Evolution of Rock Guitar Terrifying Technique for Guitar Melodic Rythms for Guitar and A Modern Method for Guitar Volume 1
I have always loved teaching those around me how to improve in music. I believes that even though there are times to be strict with learning and practicing, that music should always be fun and engaging. I help my students learn by picking material that they enjoy playing but at the same time have techniques that they need to know.
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
