About this pro
I'm a full time professional teacher and musician with over 30 yrs experience. I've shared the stage with Paul Simon, Eddie Money, The Drifters and others and performed on countless recording sessions ranging from albums to commercials to movie soundtracks. Throughout my career, I've also taught many thousands of students. I've worked as a guitar teacher for many music schools and music stores, such as Focus II Guitar Centers, a major Long Island music retail chain. I know how to teach the guitar in the most efficient and enjoyable manor and how to inspire my students to succeed and achieve their musical goals. Some of my students have gone on to music schools, such as Berklee and Julliard. Others have performed at Carnegie Hall and The Grand Ole Opry, in Nashville. And, many others have developed a lifelong skill that has given them hours of enjoyment and relaxation, as well as the perfect way to express themselves artistically. I love seeing students improve and I love teaching them the skills they need to continue their advancement for the rest of their lives. When students develop things like ear training, knowledge of music theory, reading and mechanics on the guitar, there's no limit in how far they can go with the instrument, in any style they choose. Taking a student from square one to the point where they can perform some of the songs they enjoy always gives me (and them!) a great sense of accomplishment. Having a student master a song and play it intuitively and expressively is, in the words of the great guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel, "A moment to live for!".
