About Patrick

Music is a language, and what makes it special is that music is your own language, unique to you, but can be universally understood. Music is the language of the spirit. I teach students how to find their inner voice to express as they imagine, through a guitar. My goal is to teach my students how to teach themselves literally anything they want to say, or play on a guitar. My method is vertically integrated, simple, and proven effective. My goal is to provide my students with the knowledge and confidence they need to excel at guitar in any genre, whether just for personal growth or professional pursuit. The sky is the limit.

I have been self-taught and formally educated in guitar, bass guitar, piano and voice. I have 20 years' experience in composition, recording, touring, performance and the music business, and I have been teaching since 1993. I am passionate about what I do, and understanding of people's needs. You will find me easy and enjoyable to work with, and your student will amaze you in a short time when I do my job well. I look forward to visiting with you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Ear Training

Ear Training is something I had to learn how to teach. I always had perfect pitch, but until I took vocal lessons, I had no idea how to explain it. Through my own vocal training between 1988 and 1992 I learned an effective method by which my students should be able to identify notes, chords and modes within the first few months, by means of relative pitch training and visual aids.

Guitar

I am a natural at guitar who also happens to be well-trained. I have been playing since 1981 (I was almost 12), self-taught for most of the first four years, taught privately for the next four, and professionally, classically-trained...ever since. I went to school for Jazz Guitar Performance 1989-1992.
