Teaching Approach:
Photo of Bill SbregaI believe that if you learn to read music, and acquire technique, then you can play anything. And if you couple that with an understanding of chords and theory, you will also be able to improvise in any style, including classical, jazz, rock, pop and folk. Indeed, I think you’ve got to be able do it all! I teach all levels and all styles, with emphasis on reading, technique, chords, theory and improvisation. My home studio features Steinway Model M, 16-track hard disc recording, CD production and Alesis Qs88 synthesizer. In addition to my private studio, I teach at ARMS in Amherst.
