Customized private lessons for beginning, intermediate and advanced students. I have a master’s degree in music performance. Experienced as a public school music teacher and college instructor. My specialty is jazz improvisation and performance.
Lessons also available by Skype or FaceTime.
I love helping dedicated music students advance in their knowledge and skills and watching them grow.
Previous to Dick Lange, I spent the past year with a technically proficient guitarist who could play many styles but didn’t know how to teach. I was learning stuff but frustrated because I was not understanding how to integrate and adapt what I was learning to my routine playing. I needed someone who could play AND teach. Right out of the box, Dick taught me fundamental concepts and tools that made an immediate improvement in my practice and confidence level. He went on to lay out for me a logical series of lessons around which I could integrate visual, audio, tactical, theory and practice. I can see that the lessons will give me the ability to measure my progress and keep my interest. I’m optimistic that Dick’s teaching abilities and guitar skills will get me where I want to be. Jim K.
The process starts with an interview and assessment to help me determine the students’ strengths and weaknesses and to better match their goals with their current skill level.
