I enjoyed teaching as a core instructor at Musicians Institute for ten years which is one of the largest contemporary music colleges and is located in Hollywood, CA. Also I taught at Hollywood Recording Workshop in Dana Point, California a private training center with networks with some of the biggest music producers in the industry.

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.

Composition (Music)

I have worked in recording studios for 20 years and have worked with top music producers on music projects. This experience taught me how to apply the methods of using inversions, SATB, voice leading, harmony, melody, and rhythm in song writing. I took courses at Saddleback Community College in Tonal Harmony. I have received private lessons from high level instructors over the years in composition.

Drums

I received drum lessons from private instructors and took lessons from the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago, IL. I learned the 42 international rudiments and the popular grooves. Played many years in a popular Chicago based band that played in front of large audiences, recorded music in to the studio, and our music was played on the radio. I began teaching drums to my students 20 years ago. I also played drums on many recording projects while working at Musicians Institute in Hollywood California. I also recorded in Chicago IL and songs were played on WGN radio for the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox. I have worked on music recording projects with great drummers as Dennis Chambers, Steve Smith, Dave Weckl, Mike Mangini, Terry Bozzio, Virgil Donati. Virgil and I became friends and shared the same rehearsal place in North Hollywood California. He is considered one of the best drummer according to Modern Drummer. I am an accomplished drummer and teacher.

I taught Music Production at both Musicians Institute in Hollywood California for 10 years and Hollywood Recording Workshop for 10 years. I have been teaching all aspects of music production from the technical signal flow, microphone types and placements, front end recording devices, audio software, convertors, to the monitors for listening. From choosing the right instruments to be recorded, to proper tuning, to learning the acoustics of rooms, to how the electronic devices function and their parameters. Devices as preamps, filters, equalizers, compressors, reverbs, delays, and more. I have taught many students who are now working professionally in the music industry.
