Primary Instrument: Guitar

Born: November, 1966    

I began playing saxophone at age 11, and added guitar a few years later. From 1984 to 1988, I attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. At Berklee, guitar became my principal instrument. I majored in Commercial Arranging, studying many different composition and writing techniques for all styles of music. During my time at Berklee, I also was introduced to film scoring, jingle writing, and using computers in music.

After leaving Berklee, I stayed in the Boston area, writing music for several independent films, playing guitar (and singing) in rock bands, and also doing live sound mixing for other bands. I also had the opportunity to write and record program music for performers and presentations of other artistic disciplines, help several singers/songwriters arrange their material for bands of various sizes, and to perform in live theater productions. Recently I have focused on composition, production, and film scoring work, while remaining available for live performances....

Wilmington, MA

Willing to teach:
Beginners

Credentials/Background:
Educated at the world-renowned Berklee College of Music, I'm offering private instruction on the guitar for students of any ability, age 8 and up, in the north suburban Boston area. My lessons combine guitar technique with music theory, encouraging students to learn not only how to play guitar, but how to make music. I believe that learning music theory beyond only the guitar allows students to more quickly understand the instrument, and strengthens their ability to learn and play the guitar. Beginners: Learn how to get in tune, get rhythm, find your way around the fretboard, and build your technique on the instrument with basic scales and chords. Learn to read music and connect with the guitar. Intermediate: Expand your fretboard knowledge with additional scale and chord forms. Understand music theory and how to apply that knowledge on the instrument. Advanced: Learn how to bring new life to old songs. Connect scales and chords in new ways by studying deeper harmonic theory and my own take on the scale modes. Convenient times available. Reasonable rates based on level of ability. Music is a universal language and learning an instrument can be a lifelong enjoyment. e-mail today to begin: lessons@billhartzell.com
