i have the ability to record every lesson at no additional charge to the student, to have record of everything we learn which is quite useful as a reference and study aide.
As a veteran of the music scene with over 25 years of experience writing, performing and producing, i have dedicated my existence to lifting the community standard of high quality audio: music and sound. Working professionally out of RK1 Studios in OKC since 2005, i have had the joy of producing audio for radio, tv, film and video as well as music for broadcast and commercial applications. ive produced for solo artists and bands, and continue to do all of the above as i work on my own personal passion projects to produce music and high quality audio to make the world a more sonically beautiful place.
i have given private 1 on 1 lessons off an on for over 15 years, and i was adjucnt faculty at [email protected] for 5 years, teaching music production techniques from beginner to advanced.
it's all about the peopole! what i really enjoy is the people that i get to work with, i love helping a client or student realize a vision, and most of all i enjoy reflecting on my work at the end of the day and seeing or hearing something that did not exist before.
Makes everything easier to understand, hands on experience and overall patient and never gives up on his students.
introduction, get to know one another, understand where the student is currently and their goals and aspirations with what they want to learn.
after intros, we will delve into topics head first with hands on project-based focused learning mixed with technical and theoretical lessons.
we can go song by song, or we can start with theory/technique and work our way up. i can tailor my teaching style to the student, but everyone gets some music theory in my class.
Audio Professional since 2005, Associates of Arts in music performance, countless resume credits for live performance in music and theatre, and served as adjunct faculty at [email protected] for five years.
$1/minute. usually will do half hour lessons, up to an hour if the student needs/requests so.
when i was still in college my main professor recommended me to teach some one on one lessons outside of school, i really enjoyed it and it stuck!
all ages are welcome! for kids, once they're in 5th or 6th grade, i find they are ready for an instrument. but you are never too old to learn something new. my schedule is very flexible so i can work with middle school through college students or busy professionals all the same.
the band i was performing with recently opened for Texas Hippie Coalition at the Gas Monkey in Dallas, TX. that was a great gig and an awesome night.
