I’m offering lessons and gear help through Skype and Google Video Chat

I really enjoy teaching here in Chicago so I thought I’d extend the possibilities online.

–Funk, soul, R&B and rock techniques and concepts.
–New players: begin making music you like right away.
–Developing ways of practicing that are fun and satisfying.
–Experienced players: get better at sounding like YOU.
–Make the transition from playing alone to playing with others.
–Learn to play in a band or in the studio.
–Learn how to develop effective parts to support a song or a groove.
–Get the most out of the gear you have.

Lessons can be as short as 15 minutes–cost effective and to the point.

I am an experienced private and group teacher. I’ve been playing for 30 years, have performed with a wide variety of artists in different genres including Common, Ice Cube and Estelle. I’ve done music for advertising and film, have worked as a studio engineer and producer and have designed and taught innovative music curricula for a wide variety of arts organizations and schools.

Mostly, I love musical collaboration of all kinds. Teaching, for me, is working on music together.
