Hello, My name is Ishmael. I am currently a student at Grossmont finishing up my last two classes to obtain a second associates degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences. I currently have an AA-Music Industry Studies, this degree is earned upon the learning of all general aspects within the music industry including; music theory and ear training, and performance. I've majored in vocals and have a long musical background. I have classical experience including some foreign languages and some popular and stage music. I have played drums since I was 8 years old, I can play the harmonica, I have learned theory through the piano (including voice) and have taken three semesters of piano lessons, and I can dabble on bass. I have experience in the recording room, on stage set up, and with a mixing/sound board. My biggest gig so far is playing a small set at the House of Blues in San Diego. I have experience with composing and writing lyrics of about 4 years.
The fine arts are second in my passion, mostly in drawing. I can also tutor in math and exercise. Patience, is the key to helping a student achieve and be successful.
