About Learning My Guitar

If you're ready to learn your guitar, then I am your guy. I've been teaching for over 15 years and playing guitar for 39 years. I make teaching fun and effective. I can teach all levels but I really enjoy beginners most.

Learn all your basics, chords, strumming, timing and of course, easy guitar songs and much more!

Some of my students have gone on to be in very good bands. I hope I can help you too. Guitar keeps the brain in tune (o)====#.
