I've been around music all my life. My skills have grown through the education of school, which I was in band and choir, and also through life experience. I perform regularly as a guitar player/singer and eagerly seek students to learn what I've learned There are a lot of different aspects to playing guitar, whether you want to just sing and play rhythm, come up with cool riffs, or shred a mouth dropping solo in front of your friends, I can show you these things. I've taught a lot to myself through online resources and simply watching other guitar players on YouTube or in real life. So I want to show the student how to learn for himself also.
I've received A+ when I was in high school, so I started tutoring then in both basketball and some elementary education. I delved heavily into computers and music education in college. Even though my background on computers was programming and web design, I eventually used those skills to learn how to do music recording. So over the past 8 years my main focuses have been teaching, playing, and recording music. I hope you would like to learn some of these things.

When you sign up with me, I will get a hold of the student before the first lesson. That way, I can get a quick assessment on the students experience and their goals so I can come with a prepared lesson based on the students needs. With any student I'll go over the basic knowledge of the instrument: tuning, explaining different parts of the guitar, correct posture, etc. From there, depending on the students goals, we can jump into learning any favorite song, learn basic chords and how to put them into progressions which form songs, or start understanding how to improvise and solo in different genres of music. I will also provide handouts, teach my student to read tablature, and how to research for information via online or books. I like to have fun and encourage any student to enjoy themselves even during the tough parts of learning. With perseverance you'll not only gain the ability to play something meaningful, but learn lifelong principals as well. I look forward to meeting you.

I will bring my own acoustic. I can provide a guitar for the student at first, but it's recommended for any student to have his own instrument. I'll bring my handouts and references for the lesson that day and next week. I will bring a music stand as well for easy reading and playing.
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in many different styles either on the acoustic guitar or the electric. I've been in full bands, small bands, and solo acts. I can play anything from Blues, bluegrass, rock, folk, to funk or heavy metal. I can teach how to solo in any of these genres, or just to play rhythm and sing.
I have two acoustics, and one electric. I can provide a guitar if the student needs.

A military-brat born in Sacramento, California. Dennis spent the early years of his life on numerous bases in the US and overseas where his exposure to various people with different backgrounds and interests certainly influenced his eclectic taste in music. Dennis joined his school band at age 11, as a percussionist, and participated in orchestral, marching, and performance activities gaining experience on drum-set, marching drums (Snare, Bass, and Tenor), and auxiliaries like marimbas, hand-drums, tympani, and cymbals with emphasis in all genres from Jazz, Country, Rock, and Classical. Due to demand of multi-instrumental students, Dennis soon picked up guitar, bass, and piano to cover parts on various songs with emphasis in the same genres listed above. Dennis currently runs a home-studio and YouTube channel that promotes and collaborates with local artists to deliver music news, produce originals, covers, and music spoofs.

My methods of teaching are dynamic in nature. I believe communication is the key component to effective learning; therefore, I tailor my style and methods depending on the personality, requests, and preferences of my students. I am a very animated, laid-back, individual. So, I tend to teach in a style that encompasses and exudes learning WITH FUN, in a more relaxed environment. However, for those who require or like a more directed approach, or for parents who want their children to have more of a focus on capability, I am completely comfortable with delivering a tutoring experience that has more emphasis on ability and progression. Most importantly, I deliver whatever my student wants, whether they prefer learning the basics in guitar or drums for terminology, technique, chords, rhythms, and songs; or they want more intricate lessons involving instrument history, maintenance, and techniques tailored to their preferable genre style.
