Introduction: I have returned to doing lesson in person! Prefer doing them over Skype or Zoom? As always, I still offer that option, too. I enjoy teaching and am constantly striving to be a better teacher. Many times I've heard from students who took lessons before finding me that I'm better than their former teacher. I put a strong emphasis on fundamentals and getting the student to know and understand what he/she is doing-not just go through the motions of doing it. I try to keep a light, fun atmosphere during lessons without drifting off the subject at hand. I'm very much aware that someone is paying me, so I need to use lesson time efficiently. I am flexible in my scheduling. I like seeing a student progress and knowing that I had something to do with it.

Audio Recording

Bruce recorded a live concert for us and provided a Master CD in which to have additional CDs burned. He was professional, set up well before the concert, was out of the way and was efficient in set up and tear down. The final product was good and fun to listen to.

Guitar Lessons (for children or teenagers)

I feel very fortunate to have found Bruce for guitar lessons for my daughter.  I had other guitar teachers before but none of them were of the quality of Bruce.  He has a well grounded lesson plan and is teaching my daughter how to properly play a guitar vs. just teaching her to play notes or chords on a page. He is very personable and professional and knows how to convey ways to improve without sounding critical.  He welcomes questions and is willing to vary the routine (adding in holiday songs or a song my daughter really wants to learn) to keep things interesting.  He is even taking the time to adjust a more complicated song my daughter wants to play to her skill level.  My daughter loves to play the guitar and I have no doubt her interest is being maintained by her lessons with Bruce.

Guitar Lessons (for adults)

Bruce is awesome. He is patient, and knows how to not only teach guitar, but tune the lessons depending on how I am doing week to week. He keeps it lighthearted while we progress. Highly recommended.

Guitar Lessons (for adults)

Bruce is thorough in his lessons. I have some knowledge of the guitar. Bruce is making sure that what I have learned, that I understand why it is what it is. Bruce is very patient and wants me to learn correctly. He's even working on breaking some bad habits I have already developed. Very happy with this teacher.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I try to make them reasonable. I have not changed my prices in years.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have an associates degree in electronics, which included a class on audio. I took guitar lessons for ten years. I have a life-long interest in music and audio.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    It was by accident really. A friend of mine, who had been my guitar teacher, called me up and asked if I wanted to teach a group guitar class. He was scheduled to teach it but his schedule would not permit him to do it. I interviewed for and got the job.
