has been teaching Studio Jazz Guitar at Sonoma State University
since 1981. In addition, he teaches privately at his home
in Santa Rosa, California.
The private lessons are for students who have already been studying
guitar and are more advanced. His approach is to spend about
two hours exploring ideas and techniques that will enhance the
musicianship of the student and will include theory as well as
specific exercises. Each lesson is adapted to the needs of the
individual student. The lessons are scheduled as the student
feels he is ready for more. It may be as often as every week,
or it may be as seldom as once a month. In any event the student
determines how he wants to progress. The cost per lesson (not
per hour) is $70.
Techniques presented include:
- Music theory, with emphasis on jazz
- Music composition and improvisation
- Sight-reading music
- Playing by ear
- Practice techniques.
