    Please do not regard this as negative, but just the truth. If you are interested in lessons, please do not use This website is just a tollbooth, charging teachers to get emails from potential students. They do this by paying Google to be up top on any search relating to lessons. And it all looks (and technically is) legit. But then instead of seeing the ACTUAL teachers' websites, you get this website. THE OWNERS OF THIS WEBSITE ARE NOT TEACHERS.

As a teacher I help them understand what they know.  My approach mixes it up between playing, improvising, composing, song-writing, ear training, theory, copying, recording, singing, drumming, keyboarding, videotaping, notation, reading, chords, bass lines, perfor
