About this pro

I am a great coach.. great instincts to find the connection so that a student quickly and profoundly comprehends timing, sound, notes, rhythm, and melody. I have had great success in teaching both individually and in groups. I have many students with physical handicaps.

I am someone with Technical, Performance and Teaching experience for over 30 years.. Many ongoing clients for 7 years or more.

I have worked on films, such as Wayne's World, The Little Rascals, Encino Man, composing, as wellas extensive traveling as a musician.

I attended Berklee College of Music, and have an indepth grasp on Music Theory, Harmony, Composition, and Performance. 

I teach in a very easy to understand way, that will have you learning quickly.

My website.. with my company ROXSKOOL LA, and young performer's videos, as well as my music can be found at www.georgefostermusic.com  or www.roxskool.com

I charge $50.00 per one hour lesson in my home studio in Redondo Beach, and (depending on distance) $60-65.00 for an hour house call.
