My name is John Dorney, I am a recent performance graduate from Berklee College of Music living in Orlando Fl. I have 4+ years of experience teaching students of all ages in group and private settings on bass, guitar, piano, vocals, writing, music theory, and production. I have taught both at and after school program the School of Rock, as well as freelance work. I have a deep passion for introducing people to music and helping them to discover a new passion in their life!
I let the student decide the style of music that they would like to learn by having them show me examples of songs,bands, etc. that they already enjoy. Then we listen to the song and disect the different parts starting with the Melody and lyrics, then expanding to playing the bass motion in conjunction with the melody then learning the harmony of the song/ specific parts. This way the student begins to hear the different parts of music and is able to quickly and effectivly learn any piece of music they desire.
