Ear Training

I teach my Students HOW TO LISTEN 

and

I teach my Students HOW TO HEAR!!

You'd be surprised by what your "ear" already knows!! 

I will show you how to HEAR the difference between a Minor Triad and a Major Triad. In 3 to 4 Lessons, you will be able to name, spell (the note(s) of the chord)and sing them simultaneously!!

Want to learn how to communicate with your fellow musicians?? I will teach you how to read and write a chart on your own. You won't believe how simple it is and how proud you'll be!!

Arranger


Come to me with an original melody or your favorite covers and I'll propose several chord arrangements and harmonic structures to suit your song. I'll help you find the right feel, key and tempo. This will help you sing songs that you always dreamed of singing!

Once you're happy with the Arrangement, we'll make a recording of the backing track for you to take to Rehearsals, Auditions, etc. 

Leave my Studio with your own CD.

I can also arrange a recording session with great backing musicians to "sweeten" the track.
