My first class was great 👍. Thank you Michael Macchia. Helped me to give a great start. Looking forward to learn more Michael.
I assess the students level and make shore we start working on music that he or she can grasp right away . Also , for students that have experience on guitar /bass we start working on songs that peek their interest . The next step is to impress upon them to think of learning how to read music tablature and music theory . Having music theory relating to ones instrument is necessary for teaching themselves .
I have played since the age of ten. After various lessons and a few private teachers I started playing in bands . I then attended Bucks county community college for music theory and jazz instruction . I then went to Muicians Institute in Hollywood Ca. I have had studies with Steve Morris Robin Ford Pat Martino as well as many of the top studio musicians of their time . I studied classical guitar at Settlement music school.
