Teaching the various different disciplines of music simultaneously, enables me to deliver lessons that cover a broad spectrum of the students needs.
Having been a performer for more than 30 years and still performing today, I am able to draw on my experience in many genres and musical demands as a solo entertainer or session musician. A good performer knows whether he needs to support the others around him, or step forward and take the lead when necessary.
In many cases you may never know who the composer is, but if you listen carefully you will hear trademark phrases or nuances in the music. i teach composition and arranging to all levels, and the lessons are directly related to the student’s musical ensemble.
