Background Check: Passed

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.

General Music

A little General Music back-story:
Some of my first memories of playing an instrument were banging on pots and pans to my Dad's jazz records, then at 8 years old, I picked up the the Saxophone, followed my Trumpet, School Choir, eventually discovering Guitar, and the rest is history.

I found myself drawn to classical guitar for a couple of years, in addition rock and roll, and blues etc… upon attending Musician's Institute, I was exposed to numerous useful, and applicable music styles for the working musician/guitarist.

As a music lover, I have, and continue to enjoy/listen to as many different styles of music I can get my ears on - I believe listening to appreciating, and learning as many musical styles as possible makes one a better guitarist/musician, as well as a more rounded and capable composer.

Guitar

With over 25 years' experience as a professional international touring musician, and session player (in addition to the incredible information I was taught at the Musician's Institute Los Angeles), my unique approach to guitar is based on skills for the "Working Musician'".
While some teachers concentrate only on technique, scales, and theory, etc (which is awesome!), my approach to guitar is to also contribute what sounds best for the song at hand, and/or the live situation in which the guitarist places themselves.
I look forward to sharing this information with students looking to take their musicianship (via guitar) to the highest possible level.

Songwriting

Songwriting is beautiful craft, one that anyone lucky enough to compose a song, or enjoy one, can appreciate.
From nothing, something is created that can move, touch, and inspire limitless people ongoinly...most importantly, the artist who created it : )
Having been fortunate enough to have placed numerous compositions in Film, TV, and Video Game projects - I understand the power of song first hand.
My approach to songwriting is in the Pop, Rock, Blues, Soul, Funk arena - I still listen to new music, and am always looking for new approaches either in structure, or the use of technology to create new compositions.
I believe the gift of songwriting is to honestly express oneself...which is what I like to teach…
