Introduction
I offer a free 30 min intro lesson, so you’ll see first hand my studio, teaching style, and what I have to offer. Then you decide if I’m the right teacher for you! I take the time to find out what each individual student desires to play, and use their favorite songs, with a few extras to get them going in the right direction. I have a true passion for guitar playing and watching an individual grow in their ability to express themselves with their music. You'll learn basic music theory applied to the guitar in an understandable way. You'll know what it means to be playing in a given “Key", why certain chords sound good together, gain confidence with strumming, finger style techniques, and lead playing. Simple graphs in my book will have you playing chord progressions, and effective leads quickly. Learn in a comfortable, quiet setting, not a busy music store with other lessons coming through the walls! Helping students become more confident playing guitar, performing their favorite songs, and watching them grow as a knowledgeable player.

FAQs

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Most of all I help my students understand the theory behind the songs they are learning, so future songs become easier to play and understand why they are combining certain chords and melodies. Once you understand the key a song is written in, it all makes more sense! Strumming and picking patterns will make the song, I expand my students ability to play any rhythm or picking pattern. I have a passion for playing and teaching guitar, and hopefully that becomes infectious!

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Experience teaching many different personality types enhances a teachers flexibility to hone the lessons for each student. Look for a teacher with a long history of teaching in different settings. A great player does not always make a great teacher. I have over 25 years teaching experience from Music Store chains, to prominent private school fine arts programs, to my own private studio teaching.
