About Karl

I have been playing guitar since about 1980 and played my first professional gig in 1988 (a pit orchestra for 'A Chorus Line' in Florida). I graduated from the University of North Florida (Bachelors in Music) in 1991 and Florida State University in 2005 (Masters in Music). I've played thousands of gigs across the Southeast and enjoy teaching motivated beginners as well as intermediate and advance players looking to extend their musical world.

I studied jazz and classical guitar, as well as jazz and classical music theory (I really like 19th century counterpoint). As well as guitar, I sing, play a bit of piano and also enjoy playing percussion instruments. I have a solid understanding of improvised and composed musical processes and can help you understand them too.

I encourage you to contact me and am confident that I can provide you with knowledge that will propel you towards your musical goals.

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.

I studied composition in undergrad and graduate school for jazz and classical styles. I have taken 2 semesters of 19th century counterpoint. My second CD consists of 8 original songs I composed.
