Hi I'm Rich Grado , a full time working musician ,and music instructor. I have been teaching guitar and bass for 27 years, and have been with Moe's Music since 1996,and also help run the Moe Show (Rock SchooI) .I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, where I studied guitar and bass performance, harmony, theory and arranging. I have been playing bands since I was 16 years old, and ,and also done a lot of studio work .* Classes are tailored to all levels of proficiency: beginner, intermediate, and advanced players.
* I balance musicianship & fun by making sure in each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. I use my own system as well as a variety of other guitar method books and apps to accomplish your goals. I also encourage students to bring there Tablets, Smart phones , IPods, or CD's to their lessons to learn their favorite tunes .I also have a ipad ,iphone ,and Bluetooth speaker on hand ,and we have WIFI access.
* Students master life-long music fundamentals: time signatures, picking styles, chords, scales, strumming patterns, and performance technique.
