Slap-a-da-bass man? Pic? 5 string?
I have played guitar since 1992, when I started taking lessons in high school. I have studied guitar and guitar theory for 4 years at college and have nationally toured as a guitarist. Guitar is my best instrument and I have taught countless students all types of guitar music.
I've been playing music for over 20 years. I've been teaching for over 10 years. My main instrument is guitar but I also play and teach piano, drums, uke and bass. I play with two acts in the area: Nataly Lola (acoustic covers) and We Were Superheroes (original rock). I am constantly listening to new alternative music (98.7 and AltNation) as well as learning the classics for the cover band. I never have a bias for a song and am always surprised when the pop song on the radio is actually quite clever when broken down to its roots. As a teacher I cater to the student. I've taught Old Country, Jazz Theory, New Metal, Russian Ska (yup!) and anything else that you want to learn.
