Haven't you grown tired of faking it? It's time to truly learn and be able to apply music theory. If you are not correctly instructed in the first two years, bad habits that last a lifetime will be developed.
It is better to study correctly in the beginning than to waste years trying to correct bad practice habits later on.
I have taught many students of all ages, and a lot of them who had lessons somewhere else say, "I haven't improved past a certain point. I cannot seem to play the way I want to!"
You can read my students' testimonials on my website.
I am an award-winning composer and a professional musician. I am a former instructor and not just a graduate from one of Los Angeles, California's top music trade schools.
My guitar instruction book has been utilized at Boston's Berklee College of Music, the top music school in the world.
My other books can be found at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Borders.
I am an award-winning musician who has collaborated with Hall of Fame recording artist Dave Marks (The Beach Boys), Denny Laine of The Moody Blues and Wings (the band of Paul McCartney after The Beatles), Duncan Faure (Rabbitt, Trevor Rabin, Madonna), award-winning film composer Jeffrey Gold (Abby Singer, Pigweed Philosopher, Nowhere Fast), John Debney who is an Academy Award nominee and film composer (The Passion of the Christ, Sin City), TV/film composer Dan Ferguson (Toto, Steely Dan, Cher), actor Mark McClure (Apollo 13, Superman, Back to the Future), Emmy award winner Jimmy Danelli (Winnie the Pooh, Disney), Academy Award winner Timothy Hutton (The Falcon and The Snowman, Ordinary People), Platinum artist Donnie Vie (Enuff Z'nuff), Jazz great Richie Cole, Jake E. Lee (Badlands, Ozzy Osbourne, Sarah Thiele), Mike Bordeman (drummer for Spencer Davis) and Vinnie Castaldo (Phil Collins, Aynsley Dunbar). I am a music theory and guitar instructor for members of the R and R Top 40 (No. 27) charting pop-rock band Kropp Circle and was an instructor to guitarist Chris Iorio of the Billboard (No. 4) charting band (EMI/Virgin Records), Adelitas Way ("Invincible").
My music is available on Amazon and iTunes, and my filmography is available on IMDb.
Take the time to really understand and learn chords, scales and song construction.
Please spare time to study with a person who can really help you improve your skills.
Stop wasting your money and time on worthless lessons with little to no improvement. Work with a professional instructor who has established a full music education system, not just anyone who can teach you Stairway to Heaven or some blues riffs.
I teach using a very easy guitar neck diagram system (for more details, click on the diagram), as well as traditional music staff reading.
I use my own easy piano tablature system and teach traditional music reading in piano lessons.
I guarantee that compared to any other teacher, you will learn more from, or I will give you your money back!
Remember, not all good players can teach well. Many of them are sincere, but lack the proper teaching skills. Professional guitar and bass, and music instruction is absolutely essential.
I charge $85.00 an hour $50.00 for half an hour. All instructional materials are included!
