Back in 2000 I started to teach guitar to my kids. That sparked a renewed interest in playing music again for me. I worked hard to regain my roots in classical guitar and started playing in bands again. This time it was church bands.
Since 2000 I've taught at private music studios, given group classes and in-home lessons. I've also played regularly in church bands. Although my Bachelor's is in Engineering I've taken private lessons with various top music professionals. I also have a Music Theory Certificate from Berklee College's Online Campus.
As well as playing and teaching guitar, I wrote the 3-book series that has all of the essentials to take a well rounded approach to learning guitar.
"Guitar in Real Time" books cover multiple genres, music reading and essential theory, as well as basic music composition. Until these books were released, this kind of broad content was unavailable in a such a convenient form.
"Learn Fingerstyle Guitar & Music Reading" on Udemy is based on my Level 1 book. Other courses that I've created on Udemy use some of the content from those books and expand on it.
Music is my passion and I especially enjoy teaching young people, who I try to have a positive influence on. This Udemy format is excellent because it forces me to work at presenting things in the best possible way for others to understand.
I'm happy to share what I have to offer with others who are as passionate as I am about this instrument.
