A little about me. I am 25 years of age, slowly, but surely, attending college and absolutely love the guitar and music itself. I'm one of the those people who thoroughly believe in that everyone should know how to play an instrument. Playing music exercises the mind in ways only instrumental-play can do. I find music to be one of the best ways in which to express oneself and is a form of art the entire world contributes. These are the reasons I am on this website. My passion for music goes hand-in-hand with teaching. I love introducing beginners into the guitar world. I've worked with many students at this point, so I understand some students catch on a bit quicker than others. I look forward to both types and I'll always have a smile on my face. So bring yours and let's create some music together!
Guitar, Music Theory
I'm Rick and I have been playing guitar for several decades. I specialize in all acoustic styles, including artists like James Taylor, Paul Simon and other "folk rockers" country, and rock. Whether you just want to play some of your favorites, or learn to accompany yourself as you sing, I'm your guy. Strumming, finger-picking and just enough music theory to get you to understand what you're playing...and grow!
Do you need to dig deeper into Music Theory? I'm a Magna Cum Laude graduate with a Masters Degree in Theory, so if you need some beginning or advanced level tutoring in this subject, give me a call.
