Aspiring ethnomusicologist offering lessons for guitar, bass guitar, piano, drum-set, ukulele and percussion.

Methodology

Every person has the capacity to learn how to play an instrument. I teach students how to be self-sufficient musicians by laying out the fundamentals of music, including pitch, scales, rhythm, melody, and chords, while also focusing on the beginner techniques necessary for mastery of knowledge with each instrument.

- First beginner lessons for guitar: names of parts on guitar, guitar tuning, introduction to reading guitar chord chart, proper picking and strumming technique.

- First beginner lessons for bass guitar: name of parts on bass tuning, names of strings, basic plucking and picking technique, learning how to read bass tabs.

- First beginner lessons for piano: introduction to black and white keys, piano finger numbers, finding middle C, learning C major scale for left and right hand.

- First beginner lessons for drum-set: names of parts on drum-set, matched vs. traditional grip, reading drum-set rhythms on sheet music, beginner drum rudiments (paradiddles, flams, drags).
