About Me:
I have been a professional bandleader, composer and guitarist for over 10 years. I have studied and played all types of musical styles for the past 20 years, ranging from middle eastern to jazz to rock to classical and everything in between. My goal as a teacher is to have the student understand how music works in a theoretical but straightforward and grounded way. Once a student has gone through my curriculum they should be able to play and understand any type of music. Many of my students have gone on to form their own bands and become professional musicians. I teach music theory so that anyone can understand it and use that knowledge to unify theoretical musical concepts into a total theory of harmony, rhythm and articulation.

Ages:
