    About MeContact Me
    Introduction
    I am a friendly experienced instructor who would like to help you play the guitar and enjoy a lifetime of music. I am a very mellow person with a lot of patience in explaining musical concepts. I recognize that each person is unique and may learn differently. I try to find the area of guitar that the student wants to learn, and then help them learn it. With my method, learning the guitar is easy and fun. In summary, I want to help students become good guitar players , and have them enjoy the journey.

    My Teaching Background
    I have played professionally and taught for more than 25 years. I have performed and recorded in rock bands for most of my life. I teach rock, blues, and country guitar, both electric and acoustic. I also teach bass and songwriting. I have taught many good guitarists who later went on to playing professionally and recording.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    I teach students everything they need to be good guitarists: chords, scales, music theory, rhythm styles. My students learn rhythm and lead guitar. I teach them everything they need to be good soloists, including hot licks and advanced techniques like tapping and sweep arpeggios. I help my students with all of the songs they want to learn, because everyone should play the music they love. Beginners are welcome, ages 10 to 100. I want to help students play the guitar well, and enjoy playing music for the rest of their life. .

    Rates And Availability
    I teach every day except Sunday. The cost is $75 per month/ $20 per lesson.
