I am a guitar instructor who's greatest joy is helping *anyone* learn to play so that *they* will have the lifelong joy of playing music.
Teaching Philosophy

In music, it is critical to help students learn both the foundation and the thinking skills to develop their talent. Music is a living breathing art and as such, it must be taught in that way. This is done so that when time comes to perform, one is ready and able to do the absolute best that they can.


35+ years of one on one private music instruction on acoustic, electric and bass guitar. Additionally, I teach music theory - applied - to assist in the playing of the instrument. Theory should not be a dry set of facts, when it can be the guide to help our music come to life.

I have done critical studies in how to easily memorize work with any and all styles of musical performance, to be able to comfortably play in any style as needed.
