Fretboard cartographer Scott LaFlamme draws on dexterities gleaned as the guitarist for renowned glam-rock band Bang Tango in private lessons that chart harmonic scales and explore the edges of musical theory. Set in a working music studio, outfitted with ready-to-play guitars, basses, and pianos, Scott’s lessons forgo rigid instruction in favor of exercises that feed off his students’ stylistic inclinations. Aspiring axmen develop a playing style as well-rounded as the tail of a treble clef as Scott pinpoints their strengths and weaknesses, doling out praise for proper hammer-ons and gentle reprimands for off-angled stage dives. Piano lessons impart ivory-tickling techniques that make keyboards shudder with melodious laughter, and song-writing sessions illustrate how to ensnare future fans in hook-laden chord progressions.
Musicians already possessed of fine-tuned chops can commit their compositions to tape during two hours of recording time in LaFlamme’s professional studio. Studio sessions can also be used in conjunction with music lessons, allowing players of all skill levels to spread their buttery riffs across the airwaves and take home a CD of their studious songsmithery for $5.
Scott LaFlamme of LMI Studio passes down more than 20 years of music-industry experience through instrument lessons, songwriting and composition classes, and studio sessions. Aspiring musicians of all levels can take lessons in guitar, bass, drums, piano, and vocals.
