My background & experienceI currently teach in both the music and commercial music departments at Antelope Valley College. I have also taught in a few elementary schools as well as a high school. I also teach privately in both one-on-one and group lessons. Some of my students are teachers!
My classes and teaching styleI teach guitar, piano, electric bass, voice, songwriting/composition, audio recording, and music theory. My teaching style is based on this simple philosophy that I refer to as "the 3 Ps": Passion leads to Practice which creates Progress! Students who commence lessons should already have the "spark" for music! 😊
