My teaching can help Musicians, Singer Song-writers, Guitarists, Artists.
Through years of teaching, coaching, and supporting wonderful Music Artists, I have witnessed how a good understanding of the artistic media, like a musical instrument, and awareness of the creative identity can merge into a unique personal expression.
It is the light that gives value to life and brings true happiness.
The goal of any creative person should be to find his/her own voice, I can help the students in this noble endeavour.
Learning and developing skills and creativity is a life long commitment, there’s no arrival end. It’s a continuous, beautifully challenging, and inspiring journey.
Developing as a Music Artist, regardless where your focus lies, is enhanced by knowing Music harmony, mastering specific technical skills, and the ability to improvise, to create in the moment, giving voice to the subconscious.
Exploring the personal creative identity at a deeper level is the key; it can be achieved in many ways, it begins with self-awareness, and a healthy life-style.
Ideas then need to take form, and they have to be-come what we dreamt and felt of.
Compositions, songs, riffs, solos, will become real independent entities, and the practitioner will know how to present them, authentically.
I would love to meet you and help you to develop your potential.
