Teachers

Post by zero » Mon Aug 01, 2011 6:11 pm

Hey all,

After an audition that didn't go so well, I'm feeling the need to get some lessons - I've spent so long in bands that I would love to work on something a little different. I suppose I'd put myself in the intermediate - advanced category with playing, though not so hot on theory (can't read much music etc.). Quite keen on learning that kind of thing, but I am mainly focussed on playing ability, and would particularly like to learn some jazz.

Anybody got some good suggestions for teachers in Auckland?

What style band was the audition for?
I'd recommend you talk to Dan Antonovich.... he's a moderator on this site (dan) if you haven't already worked that out

Sorta reggae/dub. In fairness, it was more that I didn't meet the qualifications requirement (would have been nice to know in advance). But the actual learning of the songs and performance of them made me think about how I could improve my playing.

Thanks, I'll send him a message later (unless he posts here first).

Well despite them wasting your time you've been insired to push yourself in another way.
Maybe doing auditions just for the sake of it has some merits?
Dan's a good guy and v talented.

There is nothing you can do better than getting a good teacher. Learning theory, reading notation, and learning to play jazz is fantastic regardless of the style or genre you like to play.
