Music Instruction, Performance, and Composition
Important information for students & prospective students:
My remote learning system is up and running so instrumental music students can continue to make progress while in person instruction is suspended. I am currently teaching guitar, recreational piano, traditional fiddle, banjo, dulcimer and autoharp.
I have an online video conferencing system up and running where I can watch and listen to the student's performance, and make suggestions, comments and corrections just as I do in person. For younger students this may need some assistance from parents. I will try to schedule times to facilitate parental help if needed.
The face to face video lessons are supplemented by e-mailed assignments, sheet music and supplemental written material. Also included is a link to a collection of audio recordings (using Dropbox) that students can play along with on their home computer or phone. These recordings allow students to play along with examples of the pieces they are studying at slow, medium and fast tempos. There are also recordings that allow students to play melodies along with the guitar or piano accompaniment.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you wish to begin or continue with remote lessons. I will follow up with details and payment options as soon as you register.
Best regards, and stay safe,
HARMONIC RESOURCES provides musical services. I started the business to offer private instrumental music lessons, and that is still the primary mission of HARMONIC RESOURCES. I am currently teaching guitar, fiddle, banjo, dulcimer, autoharp, ukulele and, for select students, my rapid piano method.
Harmonic Resources also provides musical entertainment. I perform solo original guitar music. I also perform with other musical colleagues in duo and trio configurations for concerts, festivals, parties, weddings and other occasions.
A life long lover of traditional American folk music, I perform and also present workshops aimed at improving skills for players of folk guitar, autoharp, fiddle, banjo, mandolin and appalachian dulcimer.
I also compose modern music for classical guitar and contemporary finger style guitar.
I am on the faculty of TCFA - the Trumansburg Conservatory of Fine Arts where I teach instrumental music.
