I can help you in many aspects of music. I am well versed in many aspects of music from classical music theory to jazz composition to performance. I have played 100s of professional gigs and recorded two of my own self-produced albums of my original compositions.
I have a formal education and expertise in many different areas of music performance. I have an AA in music and I am working on a bachelor's degree in music. Although it is not related to music, I also have a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering.
I have a large library of music related books that I have read. As a student, I can share the contents of these books with you.
I have played in many kinds of ensembles from classical orchestras on double bass, to jazz bands, to rock bands. These include two symphony orchestra's one of which did several concerts at Segerstrom Hall in Costa Mesa. I have performed solo bass pieces with accompaniment. I played in two college big bands and did 100s of professional jazz performances in the southern California area. I have played electric bass and electric guitar in several rock bands as well.
When teaching a student, much of my approach depends on the student's current abilities and interests. I don't use a "one size fits all" approach. Each person's needs are different. Additionally, it is important to address the students interests because this is where a person's motivation comes from.
