"I love music and enjoy being part of the music business, and I bring a unique perspective to my students. After years of teaching and performing, I realize that the first priority of teaching is to instill and foster the love of music that the student brings to this process. My goal is to make sure that the student enjoys learning while working towards realizing their musical dreams and goals.
I can, and will, teach basic theory, chords, ear training, and so on. These things will support what the student wants to do, whether is learning to sing songs, songwriting, improvising or whatever. I want to make sure that the student is having a good time in the process of learning to play music, and is going where they want to go. I will help the student to define goals if need be. And, I will shift with the student if the goals shift.
I am student centric. I don't particularly have my own agenda."

Kenny Selcer has been teaching me guitar for the past year. In that time my playing skills have improved dramatically. He took the time to listen to my playing and asked me about my goals and he proceeded to set up a plan to help me improve my playing and my confidence level. Thanks to Kenny I have taken on new challenges and I feel comfortable playing new material in a variety of genres. I recommend him highly as a guitar teacher.
I work with the student to find out where they are, as far as their ability, and where they want to go musically (styles, personal likes, desires, goals). We then develop, together, a rhythm in the lessons to acheive what the student wants to do.
I have years of teaching experience, a degree in music, years of performing and writing experience. I have the experience of backing singers and others, performing in venues of all types and sizes (as a soloist and with duos and bands). I play many styles of music, so I can see, hear and understand what the student wants to do. I am a Berklee College of Music Grad. I have been a recording artist and a small business owner in the msuic field. I am immersed in music.
