Lessons

As my schedule allows, I teach private music lessons in the Los Angeles area or via Skype.

Curriculum is personalized based on the student's needs but may include:
-Fretboard mechanics
-Sightreading for stringed instruments
-Improvisation techniques, 'breaking free'
-Ergonomic guitar and bass playing
-Harmony, voice leading and counterpoint
-Transcription/Developing your ears
-The High Desert Avant Garde (Beefheart, Zappa and beyond)


Lessons are generally 1 hour.
Rates are $80/hr. Contact me for scheduling.

I also give clinics on the same topics; I have brought my clinics to a number of schools including:
California Institute of the Arts
Art Institute of Los Angeles (Santa Monica)
California State University Northridge
Humboldt State University
Woodlowe Music
The Mirman School for Gifted Children
