[edit] Guitar Improvisation Class

Web: ChordCycles

It is my lifelong dream to play and teach music. I like to share my art and mind and discipline with others of all levels. Berklee: Consumerism and putting money and marketing before education. Little emphasis on performance, even for performance majors. To make the school community-driven, cooperative, and affordable. If you are broke but can play and show up on time, you may be accommodated. Kids who went to Berklee because they were inspired by Steve Vai got "financial aid" and student loans only to accrue $80,000+ student loan debt, which they slavishly repay over the next 10-20 years, working a job that requires a "bachelor's degree". There is no good reason why the cost of music school must be so high.
