Learning to play the guitar should be fun and enjoyable, although sometimes it’s challenging and requires patience and diligence. I strive to provide balance in my lessons between fun and work— both are needed to make you a better guitarist. There are many guitar techniques and musical principles I am eager to teach, but I also want to show you how to play your favorite music. The lessons I offer are all about a balance between what I want to teach you and what you want to learn. You may play electric guitar, acoustic, or nylon string guitar. You may like country, heavy metal, blues, jazz, classical or your own unique and original music. I am open to all of it. I also like to structure my lessons around a Rhythm of five areas of guitar study: Chords, Scales, Repertoire, Improvisation and Note Literacy.
My goal is to simply help you become a better guitarist in an enjoyable and enriching setting— to patiently help you understand and acquire the necessary skills. People inherently know that progress on a musical instrument requires disciplined practice, dedication and a commitment of effort. It takes an effort outside of the lesson to progress, that means practice, even more important than the amount of time spent is a commitment to accomplishment and focus. Few things in life are more fulfilling than experiencing a sense of accomplishment and improvement on the coolest of all musical instruments— the guitar! I hope you enjoy the same. Good Journeys!
