Winner-Dec 2009 Christmas Song Production Contest-Recording Review
I offer Guitar and Bass Lessons for all ages/levels/styles. This includes acoustic or electric guitar. Beginners are welcome. Each of my students receives a solid musical foundation consisting of instruction in the areas of technique and relaxation, music theory, ear training, melody, rhythm and reading. I also focus on teaching the student music that is fun to play and that corresponds to the particular style that they are interested in, ranging from rock, metal, country or jazz to classical music. More advanced students can focus on specific areas of their playing( i.e. fingerstyle techniques, rock soloing, composition, etc.) I treat all students as individuals and progress is made at a pace that each is comfortable with. I've been teaching for over 25 yrs. and have guided thousands of successful students to their musical goals. Some of my former students are currently professional musicians, others have gone on to music schools, such as Berklee School of Music and Boston Conservatory and some simply enjoy sitting on their front porches and strumming a tune. I teach in a relaxed, friendly, professional style that makes students feel comfortable and produces results. In addition, I teach studio/computer recording and production, for students who have a home studio or recording device and I can be hired as a consultant for studio owners seeking assistance with purchasing, setting up or maintaining gear or learning new techniques and programs. I have many references available.
