Introduction: I offer acoustic and electric guitar lessons for beginning and intermediate students of all ages. I teach a variety of musical styles, including rock and alternative, modern country, blues, folk, and classical. I have a specific method for teaching beginners that has been proven very effective in developing the muscle memory, to master chords and use them in popular songs. Students are free to bring in songs that they want to learn, and I have a large library of songs that I also incorporate into their lessons. For more information about me, you can check out some of the videos of me giving lessons and my band performing. I enjoy teaching students the basics and helping them develop into better guitarists.

I took the Beginner Ukulele course from Derrick at the BCAE. He was upfront on the first night telling us he was really a guitar teacher but the center had asked him to do this class. I would've never guessed he wasn't a ukulele teacher. In 4 short sessions, I was able to play actual songs and strum chords. He has a methodical way of teaching that makes it easy for a group lesson to feel like a private lesson. I liked his course so much I will be taking the guitar course that is coming up.

I took Derrick's group Beginner Guitar class at BCAE and have signed up for the second level group class. Derrick's teaching style is relaxed an unintimidating which is ideal for a newcomer. He is extremely knowledgeable and is able to cover a wide range of material during each 1.5 hr lesson.
