I began my musical career at the ripe old age of 6, when I enrolled in the Milton Mann School of accordion. Over the next several decades I have studied the piano/organ, cello, voice, guitar/bass, and finished up my theory studies at Golden West College. I have been in the music business locally for over twenty years, both owning and operating a music store, and teaching. I had been teaching at Encore Music in Auburn for years, and gleefully moved my practice here when Soundcheck Music opened their doors. In addition to teaching, I handle much of the repair work done at Soundcheck.
Each student will receive a course geared towards his or her personal goals. Although there is little argument as to the importance of music fundamental instruction—reading music, counting time, circle of fifth's etc—I am a big proponent of immediate gratification in my approach to teaching. A lot of good music can be made, and a lot of fun can be had without reading a note of music. The theory will come in its due time, if interested.
