Striving for a deeper understanding
Striving for a deeper understanding
As an artist I've always been fascinated with trying to grasp a deeper understanding of things by finding analogues to problems and gaining insight through that. The reason is i have something called Synesthesia, or a mixing of the senses. For me it just means i can see music inside my mind very vividly. This has helped me in a variety of ways in both my visual and musical art. That's what i mean by finding analogues. I try to get a hold of one things by maybe finding a similarity in another...
As an artist I've always been fascinated with trying to grasp a deeper understanding of things by finding analogues to problems and gaining insight through that. The reason is i have something called Synesthesia, or a mixing of the senses. For me it just means i can see music inside my mind very vividly. This has helped me in a variety of ways in both my visual and musical art. That's what i mean by finding analogues. I try to get a hold of one things by maybe finding a similarity in another subject or problem that i already know the answer to. This has helped me greatly in my studies and i want to try and pass this on to others.
If you choose me as your tutor i will strive to help push you further in your own studies of either visual or musical arts. I have 10 years of musical experience and 15 years of visual arts practice in a variety of mediums including, but not limited to oil pastel, graphite, charcoal, digital, animation, 3d modeling in max, and so on. With years of performances under my belt as a guitarist and singer/songwriter i can help with any aspect of music that you wish to explore. Ranging from beginner to expert mastery of both guitar or voice. I can even help with developing better structure for songwriting and forming lyrics.
I focus primarily on, as I've hinted at, Guitar, Visual Art, and Music Theory which can be applied to any instrument. If you want to study guitar alone there is no need for musical theory until the higher lessons, but if you're hungry for knowledge i wont hold back. For Visual Arts lessons, depending on the medium, lessons will all start with life drawing and fundamentals, or if you want to learn animation in 2d or 3d then we would learn the program first and proceed from there. All students should contact me and discuss where you are in your studies and preferably provide a demonstration or example of your skill so i can asses better where to proceed to. All lessons will have practice MANDATORY!!! Practice is essential to becoming better at anything you do. If you can't make a session let me know the day before and not the day of so i can plan accordingly. If you want to schedule a consultation meeting if you're studying guitar for a demonstration of my ability or just to talk and get to know one another feel free to let me know.
I hope to hear from you soon and wish you luck in your journey to a deeper understanding.
I have studied animation and am currently working on an adaptation of a book into a movie. It is one of my deepest passions in regard to art and i have a, dare i say, natural talent in this medium.
I have used Photoshop for years, 8 to be precise, and have a deep understanding of how to use the program efficiently and creatively to reach my goals. It's a keystone in my art as a whole basically always being present in one iteration or another.
Music is life. Being a Synethstete i am drawn to sound on a primal and cerebral level very hard to describe. I'm an audiophile with a music collection ranging from classical to modern hip hop and metal. I've studied Theory for years and, as a gigging musician, have only more to learn myself. So in this way i will always be a student, and strive to be a great teacher.
If you want to deepen your knowledge and expand your mind feel free to contact me. Learning new things is exciting and fun for everyone and as a tutor i would love to share in the experience and see you flourish.
