Native Construct’s Myles Yang launches “Music with Myles”: a new series of instructional music theory videos!

Myles Yang – guitarist of Boston, MA based progressive act Native Construct – has just launched a new series of instructional music theory videos, entitled “Music with Myles”.

Myles comments: “I’ve been really surprised by the scarcity of quality instructional music theory content on the Internet.

If the people seem interested in the idea, there will be more to follow, so let me know!

Myles is also available for private music lessons via ...
