Patrick has extensive experience as a private music teacher. Whether it’s bass, guitar, or music theory, Patrick’s enthusiastic and simple approach to mentoring creates a unique experience for his students. While attending USC, Patrick was trained in piano, music theory and arranging, as well as ear training and sight-singing.
Patrick uses a variety of teaching methods but generally focuses on encouraging students to have fun with their instrument from the outset. Ear development and song recognition are crucial for connecting with the chart and enjoying the instrument. For intermediate and advanced students, transcribing, sight-reading and music notation are critical elements to refine knowledge base and technique
Patrick is available to teach 30 or 60-minute lessons at his studio or a student’s home, whichever the student prefers.
