professional guitarist, keyboardist, musician, songwriter
I have mastered BOTH electric guitar in my chosen styles, as well as classical guitar. I have also practiced classical piano seriously, every day, for several years. I have studied every areas of music: music history (if you think you don’t need that, think again), composition, improvisation, soloing, counterpoint, songwriting, classical harmony and pop harmony, as well as music production. Taken all together, it's +20 years of DAILY study and practice about all things music, on 3 different instruments. And best of all, I write nice, solid music, that has both soul and skill. I don't write rubbish, or mediocre, insignificant stuff. And I see a LOT of guitarists doing that. Even famous ones!
I am very satisfied with the results from my own learning: it works. And it is tried and tested, 100 per cent. The best way to learn, and to learn fast, is to find the right teacher, who themselves have mastered what you want to learn, that can teach you what you need to learn, really well. I don't like sloppy teaching. I go for certainty and precision. I also tell you what not to do, which is of vital importance as it will save you years of wasted time. Skip this stuff at your peril. Time flies, we should keep this always in our mind. I always take seriously both theory and practice. I only teach what I have mastered myself. As a guitarist, I know EVERYTHING about music. This seems boastful, but it’s really not: it is perfectly possible to know everything as a guitarist, at least everything I ever wanted to know, which is a lot to start with. I have studied at music colleges, I have taken lessons from top composers, and have always, of course, diligently done my homework on my own, too. I have left no stone unturned. Period. I have lived for music by the time I turned 16. Never looked back.
I am here on Udemy to show YOU how you too can do all this, provided that you follow very exact steps. Anything else will be a huge waste of time. Trust me, I have studied that stuff for years, at my expense. The problem is not just learning and progressing, but learning and progressing as fast as possible. To master the guitar should only take a few years (IF you avoid doing certain specific things, and you do other specific things), and I am talking about MASTERING it. The piano takes a lot longer, but in my view it is essential to at least study it as a secondary instrument.
