Music Lessons with Alex McArthur

Learn music with an award-winning pro jazz, pop, & classical vocalist (The Alex McArthur Group, Silver Arrow Band, Vocalis Chamber Choir, Women of Vivaldi, Bobby Militello, George Caldwell, John Bacon Jr., Buffalo Jazz Repertory Ensemble), musical theatre actress, and music educator.

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.

Music Lessons with David Cloyd

Learn music with an award-winning indie singer/songwriter & recording artist (ECR Music Group, NYC), founder of Hook & Ladder Records, actor, creator, writer, scoring composer, and producer with PizzaDog Studios (including the new web series Cloyd), and co-founder of Buffalo Music Club.

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 is the center of my musical universe. It holds it all together for me—constantly giving 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.

Declan Miers - Music Lessons - Buffalo Music Club

Music Lessons with Declan Miers

Learn music with a pro bassist, guitarist, & touring performer (Mac Ayres, Cautious Clay, Aqueous), composer, and songwriter (Brasstracks).

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.

“Through first-class education, a generation marches down the long uncertain road of the future with confidence.” —Wynton Marsalis The emotional connection to music that all humans share is the foundation of my music education philosophy. How I help students to experience meaningful and thought-provoking music is my job as a music educator. I believe active learning, student-led learning, and setting high expectations for yourself and your students are the foundation for thoughtful teaching. In our lessons, we will not only work on mastering the fundamentals of your instrument, but we will also work on establishing your personal goals as a musician and refining your own personal musicianship.

Jared Tinkham - Music Lessons - Buffalo Music Club

Music Lessons with Jared Tinkham

Learn music with an award-winning pro guitarist and music educator (Director of Guitar Program, Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts).

“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!

Learn music with a pro composer, multidisciplinary artist, engineer (Peter Gabriel, Daniel Lanois, Snoop Dogg, Fela Kuti, Hans Zimmer), and founder & owner of Warm Jets Music Studio.

Discover the power of Reason. Propellerhead's Reason is a stellar all-in-one music software program that allows for multi-tracking of live and MIDI instruments and comes with a ton of amazing sounds, drum-kits, and effects. Pro composer and multidisciplinary artist Jason Pfaff has been using Reason for everything since 2014—writing in multiple genres (including Pop, Hip-Hop, Electronica, and Soundtrack), post-mixing, and mastering. Reason is moving its way up the popularity ladder and has proven to be a real contender as a stand-alone DAW, and version 11 also allows it to be used as a plugin in other programs. (Jason prefers to teach versions 11 back down to 6, but he can teach previous versions as well.)

Vinny VinVizeus Bowers - Music Lessons - Buffalo Music Club

Music Lessons with Vinny “VinVizeus” Bowers

Learn music with a pro songwriter, producer, engineer, music business consultant, and founder & CEO of Work Art Entertainment.

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.

My Favorite Things to Teach

  • Instruments: Computers, Music Software (ProTools, Logic Pro X)
  • Pursuits: Beat Production, Composition & Arranging, Music Life Mentoring, Recording & Audio Production, Scoring, Songwriting
