About this pro

I will work with any student at any reasonable age and most Genres. My goal is to teach the student what ever style they wish to be good at. I am also a multi-instrumentalist and have proficiency on many instruments. I am also an expert in complex harmonies as used in Jazz, Progressive Rock and Fusion applications. Arrangement and composing are also available for certain students.

Guitar, Flute, Saxophone, Bass and Piano

Often, instument teachers focus on giving their students what is required to play at school. I prepare my students to exceed this standard and develop their own identity. It brings me a high level of pride when a student becomes sucessful and accomplished with their music. Sometimes even to bypass my capabilities.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

On Flute - Memorizing fingerings, breathing and tone.
On Guitar/Bass/Piano - Scale patterns and finger strength.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

SoCal Conservatory of Music and Art - Instrument Arrangement, Composing and Orchestration.

Private Lessons.

How did you get started teaching?

Playing Cello in Elementary School. Wound up playing Cello for 10 years before I stopped playing it.

What types of students have you worked with?

Mostly Flute and Saxophone. Most of my students have been rejected by the mainstream teachers in the area. Either for being too old, too young, non-conventional thinkers, too advanced, too slow, aggressive attitude etc...

No matter what the short coming, if you are willing to practice, you can be a good player at your own pace.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I love going to Steely Dan Concerts!!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Try to pick a teacher that will adapt to your learning style. A teacher that is an excelent player will not always make the best teacher.
