lessons I offer are unique for several reasons:
Students are given the opportunity
to play in bands. More info:
We have a performance every 2 to 3 months at
venues like Symmes Fest, Putters Sports Grill, Regal Cinemas, Saint Margaret
of York Festival, Tri-County Mall, etc... These shows motivate students to complete and polish their music. I
also have the events videotaped and recorded; the footage is
then posted on my website
I use technology to keep students motivated and
excited about the lessons. As you can see from one of the pictures, I
have a great deal of audio / video equipment. This allows us to record
songs, critique them and eventually post them on You Tube.
Finally, intermediate to advanced students get to record at
some of the best studios in the U.S. For example, I took 24 students
to Chicago to record at the Chicago Recording Company. The students
used the same piano that Coldplay used to record, the same $25,000
microphone that Michael Jackson used, etc... Basically, everything is
top notch and the videos demonstrate that.
The students' recordings are often placed on
iTunes after we obtain mechanical licenses for the songs. Note: All
profits go towards future recording studio trips.
