Introduction: I've been dedicating my life to music since the first day I've played guitar, 17 years ago. Since then, my love and appreciation for music has led me to many different walks of life and amazing experiences. Music is a bridge that connects the inside of us to the outside world. I wanna know why you were drawn to play and learn music, since that feeling is what's gonna fuel your will to learn more. Thus, I'm and happy guide those who love music as much as I do and are drawn to learn and express their feelings through music, being it for hobby or because you'd like to pursue a career in it. In my classes we will dive into all technical, theoretical and performance aspects that will enable you to play the music you'd love be able to play. We'll learn harmony, different music genres, improvisation and composition but never loosing focus on what you'd want to learn and above all, having fun.

After Covid’s year off I started with Dennis. I’m 74 playing for just 2 years.. He gives good direction and quite attentive. He’s well trained with lots of experience. I can already see the improvement. You will too.

Guitar Lessons

I auditioned 3 guitar teachers through Thumbtack. All three had the knowledge and teaching skill set that I was looking for. Dennis and I clicked personally and I look forward to working with him as a friend and a coach.

My son loves working with Dennis! He is very knowledgeable with his craft and has a fun way of teaching. You won’t regret working with him, he’s not only formally educated in music but currently performs shows! He knows what he’s doing as a real musician and will help your student master his or her art as a guitarist from beginner to beyond!

First of all, Dennis is a tremendous guitarist and producer, as evidenced by his original music. He has years of experience producing and performing professionally, and it shows. Even more importantly, Dennis is a spectacular teacher. He is punctual, thoughtful, and attentive, able to quickly find areas of improvement and provide exercises to fix any issues. He came to class every time with new exercises, new song recommendations, and an amazing attitude that made me comfortable trying new things. He's very versatile and deeply knowledgeable in different styles and techniques. Dennis has also helped me improve so much as a songwriter as well. His productions skills opened up a new world of sound possibility for my original music, and not only guitar wise. I was able to progress faster than I ever thought I could with his guidance and excellent teaching style. He would make a great teacher for any level student.

Dennis is a great teacher and a fun hang! Our lessons are structured enough for me só have a sense of progression and is flexible enough to take the time to pin point and focus on my own goals and weaknesses. I would definitely recommend him for your guitar lessons!
