Computer Science, MS Office,Guitar Instruction, Music Composition

I have played guitar professionally as well as taught guitar to over 80 students at a music store. I can teach multiple styles, including rock, fingerpicking and r&b. I like to teach students to approach the guitar from a music theory point of view as well as relying on by-ear technique. I can teach basic HTML and CSS, as well as jQuery and PHP, as they relate to dynamic web sites. I utilize Drupal as a CMS, but can also work with Wordpress, Bootstrap, SugarCRM, 960-gs and other framework... [more]

Music Theory

I studied music theory, composition, performance and arranging at several colleges in California. I have written, arranged and recorded pieces for film, television, industrial videos and live performance.


ESL/ESOL


HTML

I have worked with php frameworks and web frameworks, including Drupal, Magento, PHPBB and others, and have an understanding of how web pages are structured, both static and dynamic, using php, mysql, css and html, along with javascript.


Guitar

I studied classical and jazz guitar at college in Oakland at Laney College and in Mountain View at Foothill College. I have played guitar professionally in bands, and have done some recording as well. I taught guitar at a music store in Mountain View, California.


Web Design

I have created several websites for my own businesses, as well as a web site for a store in upstate New York. I work with Drupal php framework, as well as Wordpress, SugarCRM, Frontaccount, Magento and PhpMailer. I am fairly well-versed at HTML, CSS, jQuery, PHP and MySql.


Computer Science

I have been working with computers since grade school. I have taught myself both Windows and some Linux operating systems (Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora). I have also done basic problem solving for networks and inter-connectivity of devices. I have learned computer languages starting with Basic and Assembly, continuing on through a little Pascal, and now into teaching myself PHP, MySql and some Javascript and JQuery.


Linux

I have worked with and installed Fedora, Ubuntu, Linux Mint and OpenSuse linux operating systems. I am familiar with setting up and using these operating systems, including installing and provision software, setting up wlan and lan networks, and solving setup problems. I can work from the graphical user interface and also from the command line. I have used Linux as the operating system for my businesses exclusively for the last 8 years.


Marketing

My father is an entrepreneur, and from an early age I have watched and absorbed his knack for making a big impact with not a lot of resources. His key to getting this done: creative marketing! In my own business experience (professional musician, restaurant manager, wine and spirits professional) the only way to differentiate is by using marketing as a tool to create a receptive ear before you start your pitch. I can teach how to put together a great marketing plan for any idea.


Microsoft Windows

I am an experienced Windows operating system user. I currently have Windows 7 on my laptop and desktop, and have used Windows on all of my personal and business computers for the past 15+ years. I can use the command line, start and stop processes, and run defrag, error-checking and backup utilities, as well as set desktop and other preferences. I am a patient instructor with computers, as I help my mother who lives in California remotely work with her first laptop by using teamviewer.


Music Production

I studied music composition and arranging in college in California at Laney College in Oakland and Foothill College in Mountain View. I have played in professional bands of all kinds, and have been involved in recording and music production both with these bands and independently. I have owned recording equipment and had my own project studio since the 1980's, and have worked both with my own music and outside projects.
