I'm a skilled musician who has a deep passion for developing aspiring students. I've taught guitar for 8 years now and have had many students. I earned a degree in Music Composition from Azusa Pacific University in 2006. I love what I do and devote all of my energy towards music. I know that I can help you achieve your musical goals because I remember what it was like to start from the beginning.
Maybe you're not starting from the beginning but have reached a plateau in your playing and wish to reach the next level. There is a wealth of information available today but without a sequential approach, you will encounter unnecessary frustration and a lack of real improvement. With the right tools, the learning process can be enjoyable and fun. Whether your looking to become a speed demon, or just learn a few chords, I can help you implement strategies that will put you on the fast track to excelling in your desired field.
I teach all styles and have a particular passion for film, video game music, metal, rock, classical and jazz music. Areas of focus include:
-Chords (power chord extensions, inversions, altered dominants)
-Scales (modes, harmonic and melodic minor, diminished and whole tone)
-Arpeggios (sweeping patterns, alternate picking through arpeggios)
-Jazz Soloing (learning to navigate through complex chord progressions)
-Ear Training (learning to identify chords and scales by ear)
-Music Theory ( spelling chords and scales and knowing how to use them)
-Speed and Accuracy ( how to get your playing to sound clean and fast)
-Composition and Songwriting ( Various compositional techniques and song writing approaches)
