10 Days: strongsender recording, Autechre, Yeezus, and opening a music school

Hey friends,

Before I forget, I’m playing solo guitar Thursday night(10/1) in downtown Portland at Remedy Wine Bar 6:30-10pm, no cover.

So…I recorded 10 hours of music with strongsender, saw Autechre live 2 nights in a row, talked to Kanye West about Hendrix and I’m opening a music school all in about a week. That’s right…it was one of the most inspiring weeks of recording original improvised music with two of the most unique musicians in this world, I got to see one of my all time favorite groups two nights in a row and then I had an insanely surreal conversation with Kanye right before flying back to Portland from Los Angeles.

Now back to reality. Since I have devoted my life to music I decided it was time to take things up a notch and open my own studio. Rhapsody Music School is located right in the heart of SE Portland near where I grew up. At Rhapsody I will be passing my knowledge and experience from living as a full time musician in Chicago and NYC on to the next generation of musicians in Portland. Students of all ages and levels are encouraged to study with me and as our student base grows I will be bringing in more instructors from Portland’s community of professional musicians. I will be teaching private lessons and providing music production/recording. In time each of my students will have the ability to compose and record their own original music. Everyone who studies at Rhapsody will be performing musicians who compose, improvise, record and produce the music they love.

Come join us this Saturday night 6-9pm at 2043 SE 50th Ave for our grand opening party co-hosted by my friends next door at the Warrior Room Kettlebell Studio. Without the Warrior Room, Rhapsody Music School would not be happening! They have brought me in like family and now we are the ONLY Music School/Kettlebell Studio in the world! We take care of your mind, body and soul with the combination of a healthy active lifestyle and a creative artistic outlet.
