Educational

I have many years of teaching experience and can discuss a wide range of topics. While I am predominantly a guitar player, I have experience with and have often enjoyed teaching musical/compositional concepts as well as improvisational tools and music theory to other instruments. 

Here are a few topics I can discuss with students:

  • Beginning to advanced Music Theory
  • Patterns and ideas for creative scale practicing
  • Individualized approaches to learning and improvisation
  • Transcription and analysis
  • Compositional/Songwriting techniques
  • Counterpoint and Guitar Polyphony
  • Harmony, the study of creating interesting voicings with moving lines
  • Guitarist left and right hand technique (with or without a pick)
  • Hybrid picking, alternate picking, economy picking, legato technique
  • Time metronome exercises
  • George Russell's Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization
  • In addition to many other topics upon request!

On the right, I've attached some samples of one topic I find very useful and share with all my students, chord scale relationships.

I'm available for in person lessons in the New York area, as well as Skype/Facetime lessons in 30, 45, or 60 minute intervals.
