Jam with the local banjo player — learn to play the fiddle.
A new approach to the tunes they play in the back roads and row houses. Jam with the local banjo player. These a system of hearing the keys and chords that never change through time.
About Raycurt J.

Thirty years of private lessons for Voice, Violin, Viola, Piano, and Music Theory. Music IS the universal communicator, educator, healer, and conflict mediator. We expose our children to music to ignite their awareness and stimulate natural learning concepts. I share my knowledge to connect to other disciplines, such as science and mathematics within this discovery of musical expression. I have former students who have successfully auditioned, received their acceptance notices from major music conservatories and colleges nationally and world-wide. Julliard School, Boston Conservatory. Eastman Schol of Music, Peabody Institute, Leipzig University of Theater and Art Germany, and B'way shows.. Mr, Ray's comprehensive 3 step courses. 1. Learn the basics of music language, reading, writing and yes there's arithmetic. 2. COUNTING. keeping time, the ruler of motion in music.  3. Learn how to create beautiful melodies and syntax of song to discover the process of creativity within a structure toward a musical thought. Also. effective personal practice techniques and the basics of Improvisation and Composition.  It is well documented that exposing children to music and the creative arts is a prerequisite to fundamental logical thought processes and schematic reasoning. Music is organic FUN for kids of all the ages! 4 years to 104. Lol ************************************************************ Recordings with artists and celebrities throughout the U.S. and Europe. I have performed with a few noted such as Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole, Bette Midler, and Carmen Mac Cray. World-class orchestras; Akademisches Festival Orchestra, Leipzig, Kammerorchester de St. Laurentius, in Dessau, Germany. National Gallery of Art Orchestra, Washington D.C.

Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
