Gordy has been my keyboard (piano and organ) instructor since 2002. I started learning the piano as an adult. I've had piano and violin lessons in the past, so I'm experienced with teachers. Gordy is the best private lesson instructor I've had, which explains my long experience with him! He's the perfect blend of a teacher that inspires, yet isn't pushy toward perfection. He also instructs my wife and two children (ages 6 and 9). We're currently doing this in our home, which has worked well, and all 4 of us can take lessons in an evening. Gordy is also a great piano tuner/repair person, and has kept our 90+ year old baby grand which has been in the family in good repair. I can definitely recommend Gordy as an instructor for students of any age or ability.
For the last decade I have perfected my teaching methods to cater to a variety of students of any age. I have experience teaching all styles, from beginner to advanced, on instruments including trumpet, guitar, banjo, bass guitar, piano, ukulele, and more. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Classical Guitar Performance and use collegiate level techniques in all my lessons. My lessons are unique to each student and their needs. I have experience teaching music theory, notation, and classical requirements necessary for students to pursue guitar and piano in a collegiate setting. My teaching style is focused on keeping music fun, artistic, and easy; Practicing music is never considered homework or a chore for my students. I have been playing the guitar casually and professionally for more than 15 years, and teaching for more than 10 years. Another aspect of my job is performance, whether it’s a wedding ceremony or reception, or a dinner party- I cater to my clients needs. I specialize in solo Classical Guitar, and can arrange any music my clients need.

I have a facility, or I guess more of a room I teach out of. I know it's hard to believe people nowadays, but I have taught around 12 people, some are just not apt to it. If this is the case, I offer six months worth of refunds. I have had eight people who successfully learn, which I am still a little surprised because it's not easy. The only thing I tell my clients is that their time with me is for a lesson not a practice. If I feel that they are not practicing at home, I will tell the parent/guardian immediately and reduce the charge so both parties can agree on what it should be.

I find that many guitar instructors teach because they think they are supposed to. I, on the other hand, really enjoy the art of teaching. The look that a student has when they reach a moment of clarity in understanding the instrument is what I live for professionally. I want my students to understand the instrument as well as I do as opposed to just making a few extra dollars.
