Hello current and aspiring Geetar Players! I'm a guitarist who has successfully supported a family performing as a sideman, playing studio sessions, producing albums, radio and TV spots, performing in musical pits as well as teaching- all for over 17 years. I have taught students ranging from ages 4 to 65 and am as comfortable teaching absolute beginners as I am helping out fellow working professional guitarists. Selecting a teacher can be an intimidating experience especially when you consider that the success of one-on-one lessons relies on the relationship between the teacher and student almost as much as the information that is being demonstrated and passed on. To these ends, I recommend giving me a call and having a direct chat about the specifics of what you are looking to achieve with your lessons. It'll be fun! I promise! Having said that, here are some basic themes that I can help you with: Teach you how to play the guitar from absolute scratch Teach you how to play songs of your choice Teach you how to learn songs "by ear" Teach you how to read music well Teach you basic to advanced music theory Teach you the "ins and outs" of all popular music styles Teach you proper basic and advanced techniques Teach you how to improvise convincing solos on whatever style you wish to play Cut to the chase and get to what works on any gig (addressing stylistic concerns, dealing with forms, how to create parts that work well with an ensemble immediately, etc.) Get your gear and sound together for any possible gig or session scenario (this does not necessarily require buying more gear!) Amass appropriate chord and rhythmic vocabulary for tackling different styles Teach you how to assemble a working band and how to go about booking gigs Teach you how to go about getting work in all areas of the music industry Anything else you would like to address! I am now accepting students at my South Pasadena Studio located at 1132 Mission St. South Pasadena, CA 91030. Lessons rates are $25 per half hour, $50 per hour. I currently have openings on weekdays and weekends. Give me a ring and let's talk about it!
