Hello everyone! 👋🌺I must apologize from the beginning for the length of this... introduction, but hopefully the time spent reading it will be worth it.I wanted to bring to your attention something that captivated me and altered my teaching style many, many years ago, when I was studying Piano Pedagogy, Performance and Composition: the Socratic Method.I’m sure you most likely have heard of this, but very few people are familiar with the concept.It all started with this quote from the Greek philosopher, Socrates: "Let us examine the question together, my friend, and if you can contradict anything I say, do so and I will be persuaded."Th ...

In the 1st lesson, I always ask the student what their goals are, what kind of music they want to play, what problems they have, etc.  Then I test them on basic skills to find ‘holes’ in their knowledge/skills to find the right level to start.  I have an uncanny ability to discover their main problem areas and/or misunderstood terminology and get to work right away handling them. It's rewarding to see students very quickly begin to brighten up as they clear away years of confusion and musical barriers. I’ve met many seasoned pros who have holes in their knowledge or skill that have prevented them from reaching the ... View Profile

--- At this moment I'm not taking new students in Los Angeles, I'm only accepting Skype students due to a job position in Brazil that forces me to travel often. Music theory and violin lessons work great on skype and it cost less, since the teacher does not have to travel to your house.--- --They are not good only for someone who is completely new to the violin, since in the very beginning it is fundamental to be able to correct posture. If that's your case I can recomend a good violin teacher in the Los Angeles area. --- I was seven years old when I had my first contact with the violin.

I have been teaching privately for 25 years. I started teaching back when I was in high school. Each student is unique and as such so is each lesson plan I prepare. I take care to teach appropriate brass pedagogy to help with your technique. We work on fun stuff to including duets, soloi, may a little improv, etc. Vocal students that are younger than 14 tend to get overlooked and I work with each on vowels and melodic warm ups to help sing naturally. No forced sing or belting in this studio. Vocal warm ups that are musical. You can do improv for voice as w student learns music theory. I prepare games to learn music theory. Also see my re ...

My music history: I am a music major from CSUN.  I started playing guitar when I was nine years old.  I took private lessons right away until I began learning by ear.  I spent the rest of my childhood by playing in bands, finally playing with the best band out, the Novelles, a Happening.  We recorded an album in 1968 which wasn't released until 2005 and again in 2007 on Radioactive label.  We haven't seen one cent.  As for Ed Benson, he enrolled at Los Angeles Valley College near the age of 33.  He learned a lot about music composition and classical guitar.  I took classical guitar lessons my entire tim ...
