I studied classically in college and much of my time in private lessons with my professor was spent in correct placement of the mouth and direction of air for quality sound and a healthy voice. I plan to use many of the same exercises in private teaching. I also believe that our bodies need to be in good shape to fully see our singing ability, so I plan to encourage students to be active physically which will translate into their strength and stamina in voice.

I'm fluent in music theory ranging from Renaissance counterpoint to modern atonality and microtonality, which I use to bolster my students' abilities. For guitar, I focus on jazz and classical, because each one complements the other very well. I also teach rock and metal guitar styles. I teach at my recording studio, so I can show the student modern recording techniques as well.

How To Move People With Your Music

How To Move people with your music
By Chris Standring ( www.chrisstandring.com )

I have never been more interested in musical phrasing than I am now. Perhaps it is because I have recently been hearing young technically astounding players with chops up the yin yang and I am not satisfied. Why? I have been asking myself. And I think the answer is that, to me, it appears they are not 'in the music', they are simply showing off their astounding technique. "Look what I can do!" in other words. This is not the way of the peaceful warrior.

I am quite convinced it takes a good amount of experience to get past the playing. We HAVE to get past the playing in order to say anything of real substance. It is not about chops or those amazing altered lines that we can play over dominant chords. These are the pursuits of the music college student. Which by the way, is perfectly ok and valid. But if one wants to really make a statement musically, and really say something of substance, it has to be about the music, not the musician.

And this does not go for just guitar players. It goes for all artists with any instrument, any field for that matter.

If you want to impress another guitarist who is learning, go ahead, rip through some changes and show them stuff they can't do. But if you want to grab the attention of someone who knows nothing about your instrument, then you have another challenge on your hands, because someone who is impartial to your instrument wants to be moved, not impressed.

Let me put this in no uncertain terms; we need to intrigue the listener, not impress them. We are not performing monkeys, we are artists and until we understand this basic rule, we are simply not artists.

Now, this may seem tough but I want to suggest that I am talking on the highest level here. Everyone needs to go through school, practice with Jamey Abersold records, play through changes, get repertoire together. But there comes a time when we have an audience to play to. And many musicians simply don't understand why they do not communicate.

An audience wants to be moved by the music. They do not need to know what you went through to get to this place. They simply want to be moved. And the way you move them is to make a pure musical statement based on the song you are playing, not based on your immense vocabulary that you might have amassed.

And when you come to not only realize this, but think about these things in a live playing situation, then you will become a great artist.

So how do we get there?

There is a great quote from MIles Davis, who was talking to John Coltrane. Trane asked Miles Davis's advice on how to end a solo because Trane was having difficulty finding a place to end. Miles answered in his raspy whisper, "Take the horn out your mouth." Space is the place - Take the horn out your mouth!

And here lies complete genius. Miles knew, for he thought about this for ma...
