Hello! My name is George Velasquez-Franceschi. I’m primarily a saxophonist who’s secondary was bassoon. I’ve been playing saxophone for nearly 15 years and in that time have learned a bit of other instruments as well. Currently I’m working partly as a music teacher in a private school called Cornerstone Day School. There I’m mostly found teaching guitar, vocals and piano. My taste in music is pretty eclectic so I would hope to bring some level of diversity to what we learn to play or create in class. Rock, Classical, Pop, Jazz, Indie, Ska, Reggae, Video Game Soundtracks, Anime Soundtracks, Movie Themes, etc. are all major interests of mine.
Lessons will consist of learning songs as well as warm-up practices and building on individual performance elements. Songs would primarily be chosen by you and some by me. We will also work towards a performance recital and/or auditions/concerts you may have coming up. Theoretical components may also be touch upon in all lesson types.
Woodwind/Brass and keyboard instruments will learn to read notation while guitar/bass will focus more on chords and tabs.
Very open to the music you should choose to learn. I’m open to learning and helping you learn all kinds of music and have fun doing it!! It’ll be work but we’ll make the best of it and come out on top together!
