Q & A
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I saw the need for a more relaxed, yet accelerated approach to playing for today's busy student. I was taught people in bands how to play their repertoires for about 30 years before turning to offer my services to the general public. My calendar is always full. At the risk of sounding arrogant, I can honestly state that I don't have any competition in my field here in Colorado Springs at this time.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Helping people to learn the guitar in a new, fun way. Wrangling virtually any song of your choice to help you play it, while coming to understand and apply the note theory and beat theory behind it. Showing players how to figure out most popular songs, as well as improvise -- groovily and with feeling. Hosting two kinds free jams: Acoustic and the Band Jam. Everyone's welcome! These jams let players experience the thrill of group playing, and are designed to be comfortably easy.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Think about what it is you specifically want to play. Do you just want to be able to strum and sing around the campfire? What styles of music are you into? If you're into Metal or Blues, for instance, will the teacher you are interviewing start you right out on those things? Because they should! For instance, there's no point in learning classical music styles if you're into modern pop.
