Professional Services I Offer
Guitar & Bass Lessons
Over the past decade, I have built a teaching method which ensures that each of my students will learn how to become proficient at playing acoustic guitar, electric guitar, or bass, in various genres and settings. Each of my students are trained to become independent musicians who are capable of learning how to play songs on their own, create music, improvise with others, and become experts in their preferred musical styles. Whether the goal is playing in a touring band, writing and performing locally, or just playing at home, I teach an individualized and evolving curriculum, based on the current interests and growth of each student. For some, it's a traditional path of reading standard notation and studying scales and familiar pieces. For others, it’s playing entirely by ear and reading guitar tablature; or anything in between. No matter what your goals, I will make sure that you are getting the most out of your lessons and practice time to achieve your goals as quickly as possible.
Whether you need a piece of original intro music for your podcast, or a score for your next film, I will utilize my extensive sound library and connection to professional musicians to provide you with the perfect piece of music for your needs. Available for video game, film, radio play, and other creative, commercial music.
Music Production Lessons
Study music just like you would in typical instrument lessons, one on one with an experienced teacher, but rather than a guitar or piano, you're making music on your laptop, tablet, or other device. The main focus during these lessons is to create music, in the styles you like, using everything current technology has to offer.
You will learn how to compose, record, mix, and master, using synths, samples, loops, MIDI, OSC, virtual instruments, real instruments, and effects. You will also learn about fundamentals such as music theory, rhythm, and basic keyboard playing, in addition to more advanced concepts like room acoustics, monitoring, and even how the gear you use is built.
Live Production and consulting
I specialize in taking up-and-coming bands and solo artists to the next level. If you’d like to bring out the best in your band, and improve your sound, I can advise on things like improving rehearsal efficiency, getting those harmonies tighter, and putting on a more convincing performance. Need gear advice, or help learning how to use that new digital mixer the right way? No matter what it is, I can take you to a professional level.
Available for Live Performances and Studio Sessions on Guitars, Bass, Keyboards, Programming, and Vocals. If you need to fill a slot in your band for a big upcoming show, or one of your musicians just quit in the middle of a recording project, contact me. I will provide you with prompt and professional service, a quick turn around, and the level of professionalism you should expect.
