Private Lessons with Max

Learn composition, piano, and guitar with conservatory-level private lessons.

In studying with Max, students will learn principles of performance and composition that span all genres of music.

Advanced students will be introduced to George Russell's Lydian Chromatic Concept; a seminal approach that George passed onto his students: Miles Davis, Bill Evans, Ornette Coleman, and many other influential composers.

Students will understand fundamentals of improvisation reinforced by classical studies of renowned composers such as Frédéric Chopin, J.S. Bach, and Maurice Ravel.

Max believes all people are in possession of a musical mind, that must be brought out through the art of listening, and exposure to classics.
