LEsson details/studio notes/rates and times
I am currently accepting students of all ages in and around the Massachusetts Valley. I have a studio located in Greenfield but am happy to travel to Amherst, Northampton, and the surrounding areas. I also provide online lessons via Skype. Online lessons work really well and are a great way to fit a lesson into your schedule!
Electric and Acoustic. Rhythm and Lead. Styles range from Blues and Rock, to fingerstyle and chord melody techniques.
One of my favorite things about teaching is learning along side my students the many different ways that the guitar can function in the music we listen to.
Drumset in the following styles: Rock, Funk Jazz, Pop, Country, R&B.
Classical percussion: Snare drum, Crash Cymbols, Tamborine, Triangle, etc.
Hand drumming: Djembe, Conga, Bongos
From writing music driven by vocals and lyrics, to instrumental music, I teach composition with a focus on improvisation, process, and structure. Theory has always been a great aid in my own writing and playing, and I teach it along side both to expand our ears and our vocabulary as composers and players.
My home studio is a clean, safe space, equipped with guitars, amps, recording gear, and piano. We have everything we need here to learn, and even record an album together!
