About Charles Adams
Music Teacher, Master
Location: Garland, TX
Instructs: Bass Guitar, Guitar, Ukulele
Education: I studied briefly at Berklee School of Music, continued with private study and then studied at The College of St. Rose a music education major. My background in collegiate study is both in Jazz and Classical. Although I would like to say I have formal degrees, my study and education is extensive.
Performance Experience: I have played many styles of music in my performance career. I have some studio experience as well. I can help you from Bach to rock. I can get you to the point of expressing your own musical voice. My personal passion is jazz forms, which encompasses the ingredients of many genres. I have performed extensively on the East coast, in a wide variety of settings, bands, and in solo jazz guitar performance.
Teaching Experience: I have over 20 years of combined private, ensemble and class teacing experience. Many of my students went on to very successful careers in music, both academically and in performance. It is very satisfying to see the growth and joy of a budding musician. If I can't help you I will let you know. I cater to the student, so if you want to learn songs I'll help you with that. If you want to learn music and guitar, bass, theory, and to learn to read. I'll help you with that.
Teaching Philosophy: My philosophy of teaching is simple; patience, understanding, and persistance. Every one is different, with different strengths and weaknesses. It is my job to be kind and patient, because no one learns at their best with an angry teacher. I find the path of understanding when a student finds the path difficult. And, it is my pleasure to see the joy of a successful student.
