I teach electric guitar for blues and rock. My primary influences are Robben Ford, Scott Henderson, Guthrie Govan, Greg Koch, and Kirk Fletcher. I also teach classical guitar.
I was professionally trained in the Romero style of classical guitar and have studied with Robert Wetzel, Dr. Alexander Dunn, Celino Romero, Dr. Randy Pile, and Dr. Colin McAllister at Grossmont College, University of California San Diego, and Victoria Conservatory of Music. I have performed in numerous masterclasses including Antonio De Innocentis, Alexander Dunn, Gerd Wuestemann, Scott Wolf, Jason Vieaux, and Celino Romero. I have also performed with various ensembles including the Grossmont, VCM, UCSD, Villa Musica, and SDSU guitar ensembles.
While I get quite a bit of enjoyment out of playing the guitar, I get greater enjoyment from passing my knowledge and experience of the instrument along to others. I have been teaching since 1999 and still get excited when a student is able ...
Guitar is my main instrument which I have been teaching for 13 years. I like to start beginner students with a basic knowledge of chords and rhythm to get them playing as soon as possible, and then supplement that knowledge with some music theory.
Hello fellow and future musicians, and thanks for checking out my profile!
To tell you a little about myself, I was exposed to music at a very young age since my dad was a musician. I first picked up the drums at the age of 5, and took piano lessons for a year when I was 6. I later played the saxophone in 4th grade, and finally discovered the guitar when I was 9. (Ironic since my dad is a guitarist and the guitar was around the house forever!) He showed me my first chords and really got me started on the instrument, and I played in several local bands in high school playing a range of musical styles from rock, blues, funk, and reggae. I really didn't take music seriously until I was in college, and began studying under Jerry Coelho, a member of the very first graduating class of ...

Various genres of guitar including: rock, metal, shred, blues, funk, pop.
Every musician was first and foremost a fan of music. My love of
music began when my mother took me to a performance of Beethoven's
fifth symphony when, coincidentally, I was five. From that point, I
started fervently listening to my mother's records (those are the
huge, black monstrosities that people in the pre-historic used in
place of iPods), followed closely by my father's CD collection.
After a while, this ravenous desire of to know and feel music moved
me to play an instrument. After a couple of false starts with the
drums and violin, I found my true musical calling: the guitar.
On January 25th 1995, on a whim, I began playing the
guitar, and I have yet to put it down. Along the way I've picked up
a number of friends for my guitar, ...

*WHY TAKE LESSONS*
Study after study shows that strong music exposure at young ages leads to academic success in all subjects. But the benefits propagate throughout your life - confidence, positive self-esteem, and the knowledge that working hard yields fruit. My job as your teacher is to help you or your young child along this path. It's not a stretch to see that music lessons, where you achieve success by diligent practice, teach patience and discipline.

We will go straight into learning chords & Rhythm and how to play those chords "clean" (sounding properly) and in "time" (the musical tempo of music). From there you will learn to play groups of chords one after another and how it will teach you to create your own music and also show you how certain groups of chords you learn to play are in the music you are already listen to. After that we will learn to develop your listening ear to hear a song and how to "play by ear" and read chord charts.
Intermediate: You will learn how to play one chord many different ways on the guitar. This is called "voicings." You will then learn the many voicing of all the guitar chords.
