I am a guitarist and drummer that has been teaching private and group lessons for 8 years.
I have a Bachelor's of Music in guitar performance from UNC Chapel Hill, I played in the Jazz band, Jazz small groups, and Charanga Latin band.
In High School I was an All State Percussionist and the captain of the Panther Creek Drumline.
I play guitar regularly in the area in small jazz groups and in my R&B/Soul Band, Centricity.
I am committed to giving very practical lessons to students to help them learn an instrument for the first time or to get into theory and techniques!
I enjoy the passion and happiness that I see in a student when they acquire skills on an instrument that they didn't think they could achieve. Seeing young musicians grow technically and creatively makes me so happy to be a music teacher!
I hired Avery to work with my 9 year old son on guitar. He is an extremely talented musician and has given me some great pointers on the drums as well. Avery has an excellent innate ability to relate with kids and has My son really motivated to learn! Playing is seamless for Avery, but he is able to break out down in an emphatic way that is easily relatable for people of all ages and abilities. We definitely recommend him for your learning music interests.
Very open to any questions I had, and answered them in a simple way so I understood. He also helped me learn rudimentary things, that would help me become a better player in the future. Definitely recommend!
My son took drum lessons from Avery. He looked so forward to his lessons. Avery did a great job teaching my son. They worked great together!!
