I am a Los Angeles music teacher certified with a B.S. in Education. With me, you will not only learn to play your instrument but I will also teach you everything you need to know to be successful in today's competitive music industry. I play and teach several instruments. While I can come to your home, I prefer to teach in my professional recording studio in a safe commercial location where we have access to lots of instruments and recording gear to help you with your musical development. I use a combination of traditional teaching methods combined with cutting edge recording and software tools. I can teach you how to use today's modern software to help you practice, learn and formulate your own musical concepts. It's super cool and lots of fun.
I personally have 26 solo albums in the marketplace and have played on, produced or engineered close to 100 albums for other artists. I don't "need to" or "have to" give guitar, sax or drum lessons. I do it because it is a personal passion for me. I want to see others realize the same successes I have and beyond. I have taught music in public schools as well as privately for over 20 years. Just about every one of my students have stayed with me for many years. This is because I take them all the way- they start by learning an instrument and go all the way to having a band, recording, releasing albums, touring, promoting, signing contracts, receiving publicity and eventually becoming a teacher themselves. I look for serious students who love music and want music to be a part of their lives forever.
I don't simply teach from a book. I develop an Individual Education Program specifically tailored to each student. I am your educator and coach. We will get to know each other well. I want you to be happy, successful and enjoy being a musician. Why? Because being a musician is awesome.
I'm fun! I am not a bitter musician with a sardonic attitude like so many other teachers. I enjoy music more than just about anything. I know how to make every lesson fun and I will keep you excited and enthusiastic about your own journey. I don't use drugs. I don't drink alcohol. I don't smoke cigarettes. I don't gamble. I MAKE MUSIC AND TEACH OTHERS HOW TO MAKE MUSIC. Females: You do not have to be concerned about being "creeped on". I have been happily married to the same cool chick for over 20 years. My only interest in you is to bring out the best in you. Parents: Your kids are safe with me. I have had decades of experience working with children. Feel free to take a look at my extensive charity work with the Grandsons of Italy. I host and produce annual Christmas parties for mentally and physically challenged children. I work with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) in fundraising and entertainment. I volunteer with the LA Fire Department's "Fill The Boot" program and have dedicated a considerable amount of my time to helping an organization that rescues abducted children. In short, I'm the good guy.
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
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
