My vision and work
I concentrate on complete music instruction, composition and recording for experts and beginners. Including:
Guitar (Acoustic, Electric and Classical)
Bass Guitar (Acoustic or Electric)
Piano (Keyboard, Acoustic Upright)
Digital Recording (DAW)
Line 6 with Propellerhead Record & Reason
I teach students so they have the ability to learn all the aspects of music. A full understanding; so they have a knowledge of how music is made, played and enjoyed! I also give you training in any specific area you may want. Want to learn to write and record music? I incorporate this in our lessons, so you have a complete understanding of music. Theory (understanding), playing and creating are where I also focus.
Do you want to do your Royal Conservatory exams? I can help get them completed. Remember; at certain levels you receive high school credits.
I'm here to teach you what you want! Full complete instruction and specified training.
Musical Styles include: Classical, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Contemporary and Worship.
