About Charles

I started playing guitar 30 years because of my obsession with the "magic" I just couldn't understand in the rock music I loved at the time. I moved to Los Angeles, went to vocational guitar school and lived there for over 20 years playing in bands, writing grooves and songs and performing as a solo acoustic artist. I spent the last few years teaching beginning to intermediary guitar, songwriting and midi music via the Pro Tools platform to a wide variety of people ages 10-60 before recently relocating to Florida where I grew up. My approach to teaching is one more from
the heart than from books and study guides. I find that using such resources has much more efficacy once someone has learned the very essential connection between the instrument, their body, rhythm and feeling, sound and their
internal creativity.

I am adept with Macintosh as this has been my vehicle for everything music and creative. I am also literate with computers running windows as this is the platform I use in my professional life. I have 10+ years experience as a Google AdWords pay per click specialist and consultant and currently work in such capacity as a freelancer.

For anyone looking to learn soccer as a hobby or as the first step in exploring their passion for the game, I have played soccer nearly my entire life and have coached several youth soccer teams in the past. I currently mentor my nephews who play recreational youth soccer.

Guitar

I have been playing guitar since 1985. I studied music theory in college and went to music school in Los Angeles. I wrote and performed music for over 20 years in Los Angeles before returning to FL last year to attend family matters while still making guitar, songwriting, music theory and production a part of my daily activities.

Soccer

Soccer is my favorite sport. My father is from Buenos Aires, Argentina and gave his love of the sport to myself and my three brothers. We all played throughout or youth and through high school. Since then I have coached several youth teams and currently work with my two nephews who play competitively in Pasco County.

Songwriting

I wrote and performed music for over 20 years in Los Angeles before returning to FL last year to attend family matters while still making guitar, songwriting, music theory and production a part of my daily activities. I claim intermediary skills and knowledge using Pro Tools with an emphasis now on using midi instruments.
While in bands in CA I was the primary songwriter. I also performed as an acoustic artists while writing my own music as well. I now study electronic music production and try to write a groove or song each day.
