With music, life has always been much more beautiful for everyone. I have dedicated myself to this credo with all my heart, mind, and soul. Which now leads me in pursuit of fulfillment in rendering my services, and to positively contribute in making a difference by being helpful in the best of my abilities. Watching my students excell quickly, or over a period of time, from my method of teaching is my reward. I've been teaching professionally for almost 20 years. Every student is a different case. After the first lesson with a new student I'm always able to evoluate a method of teaching what is necessary for the student to catch on quicker. I teach techniqie, hand and thumb positions, as well a teaching theory.

To name a few, I've performed and recorded with legends like The Chambers Brothers, Parliament/Funkadelic, and soul icon Isaac Hayes. I am your guarantee to learning guitar quickly and easily.

FAQs


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

I found that very student is a different case. However, after a quick evaluation from a students first lesson helps me figure out what technique and method will help each and every individual to pick up, develope, and learn faster as well as easier. You will find that I'm naturally a very patient instructor who understand that it is a learning process. I am never pushy.


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

I was taught music theory by famous relatives, my cousin "Nina Simone”, my uncle "Frank Wess", (who was Count Basie's lead saxophonist), and my uncle "Bill Harris", (jazz guitar virtuoso), in Washington, D.C. and New York, NY, from December 1967 to June 1973.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My price is $40 per hour and $25 per half hour, in which I request both pricing systems to be paid monthly for four lessons per month.


How did you get started teaching?

Actually, I started teaching as a teenager. As I was learning I would teach others who were interested in playing guitar, bass guitar, as well as drums. I learned how to play muti-instruments from a very young age, beginning at 12 years old.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with International Diplomats "Ambassadors", College Professors, students kindergarten age, as well as teenagers and seniors in their 70's of all races and back grounds.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I'm currently working on a solo CD. Recording my own songs and music in my own studio is quite pleasurable when listening to the recorded finished play backs. 


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

Well, I would say consider what style you are interested in learning and find a patient instructor who's good at that particular stlye to teach you. However, keep this in mind, everyone that may play very well may not be a good teacher. There is a difference. Note that I've been playing for 50 years, and great at playing and teaching every stlye, be it rock, jazz, country, blues, funk, and R&B. I'm well rounded as a guitarist, bassist, and at playing drums. You will be very lucky to have me as your music instuctor on any of these instruments.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Again, I would say consider what style you are interested in learning and find a patient instructor who's good at that particular stlye to teach you. However, keep this in mind, everyone that may play very well may not be a good teacher. There is a difference. Note that I've been playing for 50 years, and great at playing and teaching every stlye, be it rock, jazz, country, blues, funk, and R&B. I'm well rounded as a guitarist, bassist, and at playing drums. You will be very lucky to have me as your music instuctor on any of these instruments.
