Free Your Music Private Sessions

Music has been my primary healing tool over the years. I love sharing all the resources that have helped me on my journey. I am your guide, coach, and playmate in this process. Creative expression through music is a deeply satisfying, enlivening process. I teach all levels, from absolute beginners to advanced students, voice, didgeridoo, hand drums, piano, harmonium, Native flute, harmonica, and esraj.

Didgeridoo

I teach the basic drone, circular breathing, tonguing, cheek techniques, wobbling, jaw dropping, animal sounds, vocal cries, singing into the didge, overblowing (tooting), different didgeridoo and world rhythms, and more. Circular breathing is critical to be able to play continuously. Some students have been able to learn it in a few lessons, while others take a month or two. Be patient. It took me 3 weeks of blowing into a straw every day to learn how to circular breathe. It’s also an excellent aid in relieving sleep apnea as it strengthens throat muscles.

Hand drums (Djembe, Cajon, Arabic Tambourine, Buffalo drum, Hapi drum)

I teach 2/4, 4/4, 6/8, 7/8, 9/8, 12/8 and other rhythms.  I enjoy teaching trance style drumming and opening and closing (filling) Middle Eastern rhythms. I teach traditional West African, Latin, and Indian rhythms as well as Native American buffalo drum rhythms.

I specialize in teaching people to sing and drum at the same time. Full body bliss as you integrate melody and rhythm! I also show you how to improvise and solo as you accompany yourself singing with drumming.

Piano and Harmonium

I teach Western classical piano, jazz, rock and blues. I also teach kirtan chants, chords, scales, and fingering/pumping techniques on the harmonium. Sing and play at the same time!

Native flute and Harmonica

Learn scales, melodies, songs, blowing techniques, overblowing, bending notes, vibrato, rhythms and more. Rock, blues, shamanic and other styles.

Esraj

Tuning, scales, fingering and bowing techniques, ragas, vibrato, meend (ways of getting to the different notes creatively)

Price & Logistics

Individual sessions are $120/hour in my Albany studio. $150 for house calls in SF. Buy 6 sessions and save $50. A few sliding scale spots available.
