Watching the "light bulb" go on when a student "gets it" is a rewarding moment for any teacher.
Music theory, composition and improvisation, can be challenging even for the experienced musician.
Finding the right way to explain concepts is the task of the instructor, my experience, allows me to bring that to each lesson.
Through the knowledge of music theory, musicians can bring themselves to a higher level of understanding and joy; you must learn why you practice, what to practice and how to get the most of your hands and ears.
I have been a guitar instructor since the early 70s, I received my first formal training in music at CCNY, then went on to teach at a Manhattan school where alongside professional teachers/NY session musicians I got a good start to my knowledge base.
I currently direct Jazz Band and teach improvisation to all instruments at a Northern NJ private high school run by the Archdioses of Newark.
I have taught band for 5 years and continue to teach privately.
I produce, engineer and coach voice and performance skills.
