My Philosophy

Love. Learn. Live.

the 3 stages of skill

1. Fans

I strongly believe that with any skill, the first step, first phase, is an overall binding factor. The reason you're here - love. For music.
We're all fans.
However, music -like anything, really- gets so much more interesting when you understand what's happening.
Speak the language.
Everybody that plays will confirm this.

2. Evolve

Learning, then, is only a natural consequence. A logical next step in the journey, evolution. That's why I am so proud that I am currently helping over 110,000 students from all over the world learn. To become musicians.  Brothers in arms that live a musical lifestyle, whether professionally or not. Listening, playing, enjoying, sharing and teaching.

3. Synergy

Wherever you are in your journey, whether you're still only a lover, already a learner or an actual liver (that sounds strange), in every stage of musicianship learning is and always stays a wonderful challenge. Learning with- and from each other is even better. Transfer your knowledge to cause growth. Teach what you know to help make the world a better place. I invite you to join in.
