What makes music, MUSIC? In this one-time class, you will learn the overview of the theory and fundamentals that make music work. These concepts are crucial to the player, composer, and every day listener.

Class Experience

I have a Bachelors of Music in Jazz Performance (Guitar) and years of experience teaching private and group lessons. I've also taught many lecture-style classes on music theory, ear training, jazz theory/improv, and more. I have run ensemble classes as well, which includes helping each musician improve not only their playing, but their conception and understanding of music.

 I also have extensive experience performing music on both guitar and bass. I have played a great variety of genres in a variety of venues. Everything from concert halls, stadiums, smaller music venues/clubs, restaurants and private events. I have played in pit orchestras for musicals, original ensembles, my own music, and backed up artist from America's Got Talent (Linkin' Bridge), with whom I've opened up for the likes of The Backstreet Boys, The Commodores, Frankie Beverly and Maze, and more. 
Instructor does not require formal homework assignments, but always emphasizes the importance of PRACTICE! 
Learning is the first step to becoming a great musician. Practice is the 2nd - 10th step! 
I always encourage my learners to explore the material on their own after one-time class (or take more lessons with me!)
 Great resources for this are readily available online. I will list these resources below.
