About GoldBling Productions

Do you want piano, bass, or guitar lessons?

Call me! I've been playing all of them for a long time, and would love to teach you everything I can! Since I moved here in 2001, I have played with many artists in the area in various styles and settings.

For the past six years, I've also toured both nationally and internationally with singer/songwriter Amos Lee as his bassist, and currently keyboardist/musical director. I have a bachelor's in piano performance from the University of the Arts, and have taught privately through the Meridee Winters School of Music, as well as on my own.

I believe in teaching based specifically to your individual goals and aspirations, so the options are limitless:

- learning songs by ear (all genres welcome)
- technique, fundamentals
- how to play in bands and ensembles
- improvisation
- reading, writing charts, notation
- recording and production

We can play, work, study, create, listen, and balance all of those activities to suit you and your growth as a musician.

I have a studio space in my house in west Philly (however, it is also possible for me to come to you) with all kinds of instruments (guitar, keyboard, upright bass, electric bass, banjo, accordion, etc.) as well as recording gear. Beginners are welcome!


Let me know if you are interested!

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Figure out what some of your smaller and larger goals are; what are some things you would like to accomplish specifically; are you more interested in writing original music, playing cover songs, classical, jazz, improv, etc.? Also, what is your favorite and most inspiring music to listen to? I find that using that music as a basis for developing technical skills is a good and engaging way to learn an instrument.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. Most often it seems that in music teaching there is a standardized streamlined curriculum, that although useful and logical in certain ways, tends to leave a lot of musical gaps in what it covers, and is also not nearly as engaging for a student as it could be.
I believe I stand out through my experience with formal training combined with many other types of gigging scenarios, and the ways that I can bring what I've learned through all those experiences into my teaching. I also feel I have much more flexibility in what and how I teach to be geared toward each individual and what he/she is striving for.
