Subjects

Music

Drums,

Drums

As a Music Major in college, I was a percussion minor (guitar major). I took private drum set instruction from our instructor. I also participated in concert and marching band.
Guitar,

Guitar

My story began in high school playing classic rock, jazz band, and pep band. Since 1993, I have taught in many environments including college adjunct, music stores, and in the student's home. In 2000, I gave my college senior recital on classical guitar. Since then, I have taught and performed many styles solo and with bands. Currently, I am promoting my GuitarSavannah solo guitar act.
Music Theory,

Music Theory

I have a proven method to teach you music theory from the ground up. You will understand how all styles of music have very few differences. My journey in Music Theory began in high school when I worked to raise money for my own theory books. In addition to the theory classes required for a college music major, I took composition and orchestration.
Songwriting

Songwriting

I began studying song composition when I was in high school, learning about keys and arranging songs. In 1992, I began my college journey and learned more about theory that controls the emotions of the listener. This stuff is vital to understand whether you are recreating Hank Williams, rocking like Guns N Roses, dancing with Michael Jackson, or shredding with Metallica.

Very knowledgeable

I’m an adult student, and he does well explaining the basics in a way that helped me catch on fast. It didn’t take long to figure out he was the instructor for me.
