About Jerry

I've never been teacher before with the exception of having worked in numerous bands and with many musicians. Doing--that is, playing--music is always the best way to learn.

I've held off on teacher certification, although I did work as a substitute teacher in LV.

I take a decidedly controversial approach to teaching, more non-linear than linear. You don't have to follow the traditional teaching methods to reach your goals. If you want to play the blues, then that's where the concentration will be.

Teaching is strictly for the pop, rock and sub-genres in pop/rock music. No classical training, with the exception of increasing awareness in classical music and how it influenced pop/rock.

Recently accepted into the Masters in Performance and Composing program at California Institute of Arts in Santa Clarita, Ca. Previously in Masters in Music Production at Academy of Arts, San Francisco, an online program, but did not graduate. Graduated from the University of Minnesota with a self-designed BS in Songwriting and Masters in Liberal Studies (Graduated Phi Kappa Phi - National Honors Society.

Extensive performing experience in musical theater--performer and score--, coverbands and showbands.

Extensive work with Pro Tools but not certified. Extensive experience using sound libraries (proprietary keyboard libraries), Komplete 10, IK Multimedia, East/West, etc.

Especially adept at not only songwriting, but also arranging in the digital realm, and preparing recordings (pre-preduction) for collaboration with session players and singers.

I'm a free spirit but also highly disciplined and demanding (getting results). I'm not classically trained, nor do I sightread. But I can read by breakdown and can write lead sheets, piano charts, and Nashville Charts.

Essentially, I teach you what you want to know, not what I think you should know. The more you know about theory the better, but knowing advanced theory is not a requirement for being a successful songwriter, musician, arranger or producer.

You must practice extensively.
