Back in 2000 I started to teach guitar to my kids. That sparked a renewed interest in playing music again. I worked hard to regain my roots in classical guitar then 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 worked on my theory and passed 12-credits at Berklee College's online campus to gain a Music Theory Certificate .
As well as playing and teaching guitar, I wrote a 3-book guitar method series.
The books called "Guitar in Real Time" cover multiple genres, music reading and essential theory, as well as basic music composition. All of the essentials are there for students to gain a well rounded introduction to guitar and music.
My Udemy course, "Read Music for Guitar - Beginners" is based on the reading exercises of the Level 1 book. Other Udemy courses I've created also take 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 about this instrument as I am.
