Instruments:

I must have started out in music when I was 4, and it was then that my love for the art grew as time went on. I started my piano lessons at 7 1/2, but I eventually decided the voice was more my thing, and I continued with that in choir and in solo vice by the time I was in junior high. Over the years, I have improved my skills, and I made my way to Fresno State University in 1996, where the competition was much tougher, and there was so much more to learn. I graduated in the Fall of 1998. Since then, I have toyed with organ and electronic keyboard as I started following more of the classic rock and pop styles of the 70's and 80's. Although my classical training taught me a great deal, it has helped me learn more about rock and pop in general, plus it helps me find what' lacking in today's music. with the skills I have within and outside of Fresno State, I want to impart what I have learned on others, so that they too can become more well-rounded as musicians.

Creep Chords Guitar Arrangement for Beginners (Radiohead)

...For this lesson we’re gonna check out Radiohead’s Creep. Radiohead is an English alternative rock band that released Creep as their debut single in 1992. Later, the song was featured on their first album, Pablo Honey (1993). Creep did not receive any early chart success. Despite that, upon its re-release in 1993, Creep became a worldwide hit. Attendees of Radiohead’s early shows demonstrated little interest in the band’s other songs. The band responded by playing it less often during the mid-to-late 1990s. Today we’re going to learn an easy Creep chords arrangement for acoustic guitar.   Useful links: Lyrics and... Read More

The Truth About Elementary Music

...see six grade levels (kindergarten through sixth grade) twice a week for thirty minutes. Although this arrangement may vary from school to school and state to state, most elementary music teachers see their students at least once a week and generally have as many different grade levels as I mentioned above. At one time I was teaching over six hundred children a week, a number that might seem large, but is actually less than some of my colleagues across the country.   Due to the sheer volume of students and frequency in which we see them, elementary music teachers must be incredibly organized ...

Jazz Scales: The Diminished Scale

...tunes are “Autumn Leaves”, “Alone Together”, “Stella By Starlight”, “Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise”, “What Is This Thing Called Love”, etc. As an example, I’ve decided to use the tune “Woody ‘N You”. “Woody ‘N You” utilizes dominant seventh sharp nine chords in three different keys in the ‘A’ sections. The ‘A’ sections use all of the diminished scales. It’s common in jazz to blanket the diminished scale over a whole “ii-7(b5) – V7(#9)” progression. I think of the root of the V7(#9) chord and use the “half/whole diminished scale”. In the provided example, I used the first example from the previous section. You can ... Read More

The Best Age to Start Drum Lessons

...while at the same time an eight year old who is small for their age could still have issues. Another issue is that of the maturity of the student – again, a mature six year old may be perfectly suited to start drum lessons. The other factor to consider is the student’s academic skills. There is a lot of work that goes into learning the drums beyond the physical end of things. The student should be able to learn how to read sheet music while also developing all of the techniques of rhythm and counting. Musical notation for drums and percussion is different than that for tonal instruments, so for some younger students, this can prove to be slightly difficult. ... Read More

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.
