Patrick J. is a lifelong musician and entertainer. He has experience playing many different
instruments and enjoys playing all kinds of music. In addition to writing, recording and teaching,
Patrick has toured the country with various musical acts, as well as toured as a stand-up comedian. He
has also done extensive acting work, which led to him being featured on The Home Shopping Network
for Esteban Guitars.
These various pursuits have given Patrick a fun inviting personality that students take to immediately.
Patrick has a laid back approach that combines the students' interests with a more formal pursuit of
musical ideas. Music should be fun, and Patrick strives to maintain that attitude through his lessons.

go." - Randy Travis
*** Lesson Details ***
Students will get a combination of technical drills, theory lessons, songwriting tips, ear training, and anything else that pertains to the instrument as a whole. I combine what they want to know with what they need to know. I am entertaining and fun, so the learning process never gets too serious. I don't have a set curriculum. I tailor it to the individual based on their experience and vision. In 3-6 months with me a student can expect to have a great appreciation for his/her instrument, a wealth of knowledge, and the skills to put them on the path to great musicianship.
