Music Lessons: Sax, Guitar, Ukulele
I offer Ukulele, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Mandolin, Electric Bass, Ear Training, and Sight Singing lessons, I teach in a calm and relaxed atmosphere. I believe that the art of learning to play music should be fun and invigorating. I teach in my private studio in San Francisco, near USF and the Panhandle. I also offer online lessons via Skype.
Training & Qualifications
I have played in local venues from the Fillmore to the Golden Gate Theater, performing in rock and jazz bands, plus orchestras for musicals including West Side Story, Sweet Charity and the Rocky Horror Show. My experience as a multi-instrumentalist prepared me for an eclectic range of creativity, covering a mixture of jazz, rock, Latin, country, and classical.
I played baritone sax with Full Faith & Credit, recording four albums for Palo Alto Jazz. Also played with Kingfish, Bandido, and Carousel, among others. I have opened for Elton John, Linda Ronstadt, Tower of Power, Tito Puente, Jerry Jeff Walker, Hank Ballard & the Midnighters and The Kingston Trio. I have performed on stage as a member of Malo, Rosemary Clooney, and the Coasters.
Availability & Preferences
I usually teach afternoons and evenings during the week, Monday through Friday. Sometimes I can also schedule lessons on Saturday mornings. I enjoy trading for services, and I also like being paid in Simbi.
