All ages and levels! Throughout these 14+ years of teaching (@ universities, music schools and private students), I have tailored my lessons to be always goal / project oriented and using your preferred music to explore, discover and master the instrument while having fun and developing your creativity.
During a free of charge trial lesson I will show you how I approach the lessons, we will design the lesson methods and find a project or goal specific to you to work on.
The lessons are designed specifically to meet your needs as a musician. Whether you are starting with the basics of the instrument, or whether you have enough experience and you would like to deepen your knowledge of the instrument to communicate though different musical manners, I would gladly like to help you reach your full musical potential.
I have been involved with music education as a music teacher and music teaching researcher. I have experience with children, young students and adults in setups like private lessons, schools, music schools and universities. From pop, latin, rock, jazz, funk, metal and everything in between. Whatever genre you identify yourself with, I can help you to improve.
E-Bass / Harmony
All the way from incorporating rhythm and being one with the groove, to understanding the harmony through your instrument, the bass, as an extension of your musical voice is a rich an potent tool that can be used and controlled through refining your technique, role understanding and starting a journey through it's endless sound possibilities.
Guitar for Beginners
I can help you out starting on the guitar. Start learning the guitar with a very intuitive and practical approach, take on the rudiments directly from songs and the music you enjoy listening.
If you have reached a point where you would like to take the next step with your band, it is always good to have an outsider opinion to help you improve in your musical, song writing and performing processes. Then to count with a great consultant in the management and logistics department is the second step in order to have a strong standpoint as a performing artist.
I have experience at bachelor level with popular music and jazz ear training, academic research for the Javeriana university in Bogotá about the use of the ear and playing by ear in folclore contexts in Colombia.
