Introduction: With more than 30 years experience teaching and performing I am also an author of a book on guitar. I can teach you good playing and practice habits leading to a total understanding and accelerated learning path. The book is based on having a full understanding of the instrument from a technique, theory, songwriting and soloing perspective. If you want to know how to put everything together on the guitar I can definitely help you do it!
In addition to being an educator my live experience includes playing with members of the Lumineers, Jack Johnson, Guided by Voices, major broadway shows including Hairspray, Movin Out, Jersey Boys and for the orchestra in “Pageant of the Masters”.
All this studying and live experience allows me to streamline the learning experience for the student.
It’s really been in the last 5 years that I have noticed a much quicker path of progress as a whole for all of my students. They are getting a clear picture of the entire fretboard including chords / scales / music theory / ear training and songwriting
For intermediate to advanced students I am able to teach and play any style. I can get you to the next level of playing quickly!
I am willing to teach a beginner if you show dedication and a strong desire to learn the instrument. I can show you a ton of tricks and secrets that will get you playing smoothly in a short amount of time.
Advanced students, I am sharing fully the knowledge taught to me by guitar legends Gary Hoey, Bruce Bartlett (Berklee college of music guitar instructor) and Charlie Banacos (piano).
I enjoy seeing my students’ progress whether it’s playing bluesy rock, heavy metal or improvising over Jazz changes. I happy to share what I have learned in the 35 years I have been playing and studying guitar.
