Good stuff!Jul 12, 2017
Over all the guitar lessons were very good. Some specific exercises to work on between lessons would have been helpful but I think I made good progress even without them.Jan 19, 2017Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?For most new students, the first lesson is about learning and understanding the fretboard, which is fundamental to learning all music styles. Then we progress by focusing on the music that interests the student. I find that students who are playing what they like are more likely to continue to play the guitar. Once we establish a foundation for learning to play the guitar, I may introduce topics in music theory to deepen the student's understanding of the music they are studying.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelors Degree in Jazz Guitar Performance as well as two Associates degrees in Music and Business, and a certificate in Audio Engineering. I completed the Basic Music Course, Staff Sergeant Course and Sound Engineering Course at the Military School of Music. I served a guitarist in the Army for over 20 years. As a guitarist in the Army, I was required to play in many different types of music groups. Jazz combo, big band, dixieland band, funk band, rock band, country band, etc. I also played percussion in the marching band and concert band. My time as a military bandsman gave me the opportunity to perform for audiences all over the United States and Europe.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I feel like the guitar chose me. At a young age I HAD to play the guitar. I started teaching because I have a knack for it and I love sharing what I know with other people.
