About Francis

I am passionate & deeply invested in teaching music performance
& music theory. This is my life's work & I really love what I do. I
began my journey as a musician as a self-taught guitarist who learned by
developing my ear & listening to recordings & also listening &
watching musicians & learning things along the way from them. I had no
lessons until a much later date. Eventually, the desire to learn all I could led
me to jam sessions, open mics, blues jams, punk clubs, jazz sessions, salons,
cafes and public libraries, where I researched all I could learn about music
theory & how the mechanics of music worked. I eventually taught myself to
read music notation. I decided after some time working as a performer &
having recorded & releasing music of my own that  I needed to get a more
comprehensive education so I studied in New York with Woody Mann, & Peter
Mazza & then also studied with Mike Kennedy in Philadelphia which eventually
led to my studies in Boston at Berklee. I gained a lot from that experience
& entered deeper into a career in music as a performer,writer and now, also
a teacher! I have many years of successful teaching experience and real-world
experience from which to draw. I have recorded, toured & performed in the
states & in other parts of the world & also have experience in the
record industry & have worked in stage management & artist management.
In order to further solidify my credentials, I also attended the Los Angeles
Music Academy on scholarship (now known as the Los Angeles College of Music)
where I further developed as a player & forged life-long bonds with other
kindred spirits in this musical journey. Please contact me & allow me to
help you reach your musical goals! I know how to de-mystify this pursuit &
break down this subject into a very easily understood approach. Let's get to the
music & have some fun!
