About this pro
I am a trained classical guitarist that can play all styles of music.I have a Masters of Science degree in music. I'm able to play by ear or sight read music. I have a well balanced understanding of the guitar and it's history. I performed for Diana Ross, Harry Belafonte, several Governors, Senators and at Jazz and classical festivals. I enjoy sharing music with others and teaching my students the best way how to play the guitar. What the students do not realized how important it is to learn solid techniques. I know their insight is to learn chords and riffs however the student will become frustrated after awhile. To avoid this there are finger exercises that needs to be develop in order to play chords and riffs successfully. Starting off playing chords will do you more harm in short and long run. If a beginning student is unable to place one finger down at once, trying to place three fingers at once could be very discouraging. This is why I enjoy teaching so that my students will be able to play with easy and confidence and most of all with great enjoyment
