Fred Brown - Music Lessons - Buffalo Music Club

Music Lessons with Fred Brown

Learn to think musically.

Music is what happens when we turn the deepest part of us into sound and organize it to communicate to others. To make music, we must understand that the sound is downstream from what is inside us, as well as know what we are trying to communicate. One-on-one composition lessons with me will focus on electroacoustic practices and include traditional and non-traditional notation and instrumentation, sound recording and manipulation, instrument invention and construction, and developing a personal music philosophy. Prospective students will benefit from already having a knowledge of western music theory and practices, but it is not a prerequisite. Banjo lessons will focus solely on oldtime playing styles and the associated tunes and the traditions, and learning how to develop a unique style within this context. Whether composition or performance, I believe music making is best learned as a two-way exchange of ideas toward a holistic musical understanding.

My Favorite Things to Teach

  • Instruments: Banjo (Oldtime)
  • Pursuits: Composition & Arranging, Live Sound, Music Life Mentoring, Recording & Audio Production

Music Lessons with Jared Tinkham

“Life is not about finding our limitations, it’s about finding infinity.” —Herbie Hancock

My teaching philosophy has three components:
  • Teaching you what YOU want to learn
  • Helping you draw connections between your personality and music
  • Showing you the various paths that you can take as a musician
Whether it’s “Smoke on the Water” or “Giant Steps,” I’m ready to take you anywhere you want to go musically. I have experience teaching in almost all styles and genres, as well as all forms of notation and TABlature. Anything that doesn’t have a searchable transcription, we can always learn by ear together. I create shareable online documents for each of my students, recording your progress and your achievements, as well as audio or video recordings that will help you reach your goals (so you’ll never forget anything we worked on). I also encourage all of my students to reach out to me at any time for any questions or concerns they have, no matter how small it may be! I’m here for YOU, and the sky's the limit!

Alex McArthur - Music Lessons - Buffalo Music Club

Music Lessons with Alex McArthur

Basics first, then never stop branching out.

I use a mix of classical and musical theatre vocal practices that I often reference myself when working on any type of music, all stemming from very basic techniques—confidence in pitch, melodies, runs, feeling more comfortable with different parts of your range—and getting more specific the more you branch out. I like to hone in on what kinds of music my students are interested in, while also stressing the value in knowing the theory behind the music you're performing. But most importantly, gaining confidence and feeling more comfortable within yourself and your body, becoming more aware of areas of tension and finding a way to release it, helps with monumental breakthroughs that I still constantly find myself.

Declan Miers - Music Lessons - Buffalo Music Club

Music Lessons with Declan Miers

Find, develop, and control your unique musical voice.

The relationship between a teacher and a student is one that requires trust. My "M.O." as an educator is to develop that trust with my students and embark on an individualized path that's educational for both of us. And while each path is personal, they all lead to the same destination—discovering one's own musical voice. Through tone, articulation, perspective, and energy, you will achieve and express your individual voice. But total CONTROL of that voice is how you achieve validation and versatility in music. Together, we will use multiple approaches, perspectives, and techniques to find and control your voice. Regardless of your instrument, prior knowledge, or current skill level, we can transcend the barrier between idea and execution.

Music Lessons with David Cloyd

Songwriting is the center of my musical universe.

I've been playing music since I was four years old, and teaching music lessons on a variety of instruments, pursuits and styles for at least 25 years. And I'm still a big believer in the fundamentals—discipline, technique, practicing, music theory . . . no matter what kind of musician you want to be, it isn't fun if you can't play. But songwriting holds it all together for me—it constantly gives me the focus, meaning, and purpose I need to return to the well over and over again. There's only one feeling in the world better than finishing a song, and that's starting the next one.

Vincent Bowers - Artist - Buffalo Music Club

Music Lessons with Vinny “VinVizeus” Bowers

Figuring out the music biz is totally my M.O.

I produce and play the keys by ear, and I use my software to help bring out the best in my creative nature and songwriting abilities, which are truly blessings from God. Most people are lost with the business side of music, and that is why I spent eight years working to learn the biz and what's to come, keeping up with legislative changes and requirements and other developments. It takes a lot of hard work and knowledge to ensure that your music is secure and still get the exposure it needs to be enjoyed by everyone. No matter how good your music is (and it has to be GOOD), just throwing a ton of tracks on YouTube hoping to get discovered is NOT a business plan.
