Each lesson is tailored to the individual, to become a total musician.
The main goal is to give the student a "Tool Chest" of capabilities which can be used for many styles of music and enable
the student play the music they hear in their head. With this "Tool Chest" the student can build any kind of "House" they
wish. The pace is geared to the students liking. We can go leisurely or jump into the triple fast lane. Often
I help students learn "survival guitar" i.e. how to be
less embarrassed on stage. And.. for the very
serious who wish to burst through plateaus and jump levels...I offer"THE PRICE OF SURVIVAL IS CHANGE".
I have been
delighted to see some of my students go on to Berklee College of Music (Boston), Univeristy of North Texas (UNT), Musicians
Institute(Hollywood), Belmont (Nashville) and our regional Universities.
The students are often in a position
to obtain scholarships,
achieve high GPA
and enjoy a smooth transition
aggressively paced music programs. I have worked with a significant number of adult professional musicians and
helped them realize goals and achieve a much deeper command of musical fluency.
