I hold a Music and English degree from Hamline University, but that doesn't make me a good teacher. I've played professionally for over 25 years, have taught English as a Second Language, Hockey and Audio Engineering, taught people age 5 to 75, and have taught private music lessons full time in Minneapolis for the past 9 years, but this doesn't make me a good teacher. What makes me a good teacher is that I have an infectious love of music and a passionate commitment to helping people. I do have specialties, like helping singer/songwriters develop their lyrics, arrangements, voice, and performance as well as helping artists get through creativity blocks, stage fright and preparing for studio recording. My experience as a producer, studio musician and audio engineer has ...

I began playing guitar as a teenager and fell in love with the instrument. I immersed myself in everything I could get my hands on: rock, blues, classical scores, you name it. Through private instruction I learned the science behind the instrument and the fundamentals of music theory. I began performing in local bands when I was 14, getting on stage to play anything from punk to acoustic alternative. It was at this time that I discovered other instruments. I began to sing and play piano, which are now passions of mine

Guitar is my primary instrument and I have been playing it since 2001. I have a wide range of experience when it comes to genres and have studied under many different teachers and played in many different bands. I can teach many different playing styles on both electric and acoustic guitar.
First off, I would like to say that I am extremely passionate about music, and even more so passionate about helping others. To combine the two through providing musical instruction is something I have always enjoyed doing.
I have been playing guitar and drums for over a decade and teaching for about half of that time.

I have played and toured with many different bands with music from a variety of styles and genres, and have spent vast amounts of time in the studio recording and producing myself and various other artists.
In terms of guitar lessons, I realize that all ...
