Our curriculum is a composite of many methods we have studied as musicians. Our teachers hail from such revered schools as the Berklee College of Music, U C Santa Cruz, The Musicians Institute, University of Hartford, Rutgers University, and U Mass. We have studied several instruments including Keyboard, Guitar, Bass, Horns, Drums and Percussion, Ukulele and have compiled a vast wealth of information to help you along the way with your growth as a musician.
Music is basic. It is a language of tone and rhythm like any other. Once you grasp simple concepts you are free to express yourself on any instrument you please. As Scotty West (one of the major contributors to our curriculum) said in his Absolutely Understand Guitar Course the Guitar or any instrument is simply a dumb machine. A typewriter if you will, to express the language of music. Once you understand the language of pitch, melody and harmony and gain an understanding of the fingering of your instrument you can express yourself using that knowledge on any instrument you choose.
Whether you want to learn applied fret-board theory on 4 or more strings or get an experienced producer to dial in your album or stage sound the tiger is at your service. Want to learn good recording technique or how to arrange for your band?
