i don’t know what i loathe more guitar gods are

those who set them up as such

Intermediate range

  i charge $40 for intermediate students  ( no beginners please

A beginner is one who does not inner-stand a musical triad and is clueless as to  the difference and similarities of the Major & Minor chords and the way they sound.

 

if you can play guitar like this. you don’t need lessons

Steel string too,mind you

Just because you can mimic a chord or passage means squat.

 

Advanced  range

$50  an  hour  for  advance  students.

This  means  you  must  have  a  working  knowledge  of  Major – Minor -  Dominant

and  be  interested  in

Also   available   for   Master   Lessons   and   Workshops.

THESE   PRICES   ARE   VARIANT

 

Study with someone who can see the trees in the forest and the forest thru the trees. Abstract musical theories simplified with concrete illustrations and practical demonstrations.

 Many have problems learning music, which is really about perceiving entire patterns of systems and rather quickly too. Kind of  bypassing a lot of needless interpretation at the micro level.

Pattern recognition and mind mapping.

how you learn

as a Master i recognize these things in 1 or 2 lessons in the

student

whither they are aware of it or not,

i am.

My approach is organic based on a individuals

dominant way of learning.

the less dominant ways of learning usually develop along parallel lines of mutual evolution

as long as a wholistic approach to learning is systematically integrated.

Once we get a general sense of your mind map.

Approaches used include.

Math , Chord Geometry and Spelling.

Spectrum Analysis Chord Color association.

Sound Associations ( Super important ).

Reading Writing Scoring Scribing Sheet Music

(Charts , Diagrams  and  Tabs ) . (  Beginner  )

 

Lots of ear training.

i am also well versed in the social-historical and geophysical evolution of music

Gregorian Chant ,  Baroque ,  Classical , Celtic ,  Renaissance ,

Traditional , Nuevo  and  Arabian  Flamenco.
