I find it a joy to teach others what I know in my speciality fields. It makes me smile on the outside and within when someone responds well to something I'm teaching them. I love teaching guitar and voice lessons. Tutoring adults is just as rewarding. Some folks never had the chance to learn or may have decided its time to bring something new into their lives, so I like being the one to help.
I've been in the business of music: guitar, songwriting, producer, recording and voice for over 20 years. I've won awards for my songwriting, producing on my first CD which I also produced and it is played on radio and internet stations around the world. I sing in a local spiritual center choir and one of my songs is used for the theme song on a local radio show on KRCB in Sonoma County. With guitar instruction I specialize on beginners to intermediate. In vocal and songwriting I take a student as far as I feel I can. After that I am happy to send them on to more specialized training if needed or direct them toward a goal they are wanting to reach. I also work as a producer in recording situations and have excellent skills with ProTools and a qualified ear to hear what needs to be brought out for the final project. I have also been the producer/host for a few different radio shows in Sonoma County, and Sacramento.
In the field of Multi Media I focus on desktop publishing, photography, video production and Photoshop. I have varied experience in multimedia. I've won awards for my photography and have photos that have been published in books and newspapers. I worked for some years as a weekly columnist for Marin Suburban Newspapers writing a column and taking photos and doing feature stories with photos. I worked at Sacramento Community TV, KVIE TV 6 and at CA State Parks as a Video Specialist, Producer, Videographer and Photographer. Currently I'm writing my autobiography and taking a writing class on memoirs. I also sing with the One Heart Choir. I have over 20 years' experience in multi media.
As a Computer Instructor I'm qualified in Desktop Publishing, Dreamweaver, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, InDesign, web design, and photography. I have worked in the field of for more than 20 years as well. I did all the design on my own CD cover and insert, have worked on the production of books, business cards, flyers, banners, posters, letterhead, web sites, social media, graphics, PR, brochures and personalized cards. I even worked with Steve Jobs when he designed the first portable Mac and was technician setting up the rooms he did workshops in at Government Technology in Sacramento. I will charge for travel costs to tutor students.
