I’m Dr Charles. I have been a guitarist since 1977. I began teaching guitar when I was earning my Masters degree in music education from Portland State University in 1998-1999. I also taught guitar privately while I was earning my doctorate in music from Florida Sate University and teaching music history and music analysis at the university as well. I earned my PhD in music in 2008. During my years in Tallahassee I served as a guitarist backing Charles Atkins, Florida’s most well-known blues and gospel singer. During that time I have helped numerous individuals maximize their talent on the guitar. I have worked with children, home-schoolers, teenagers who want to form bands, people who want to strum guitar in their church, people who want to write songs, and retired people ...
Music is almost more than a passion for me, it's how I hear the world! That guy singing the harmony to the crosswalk jingle? That's me.
Though my love for music began long before I ever picked up an instrument, I began taking guitar lessons at age 10. By age 12 I was writing music and by 13 I played my music at my first talent show with my band. In high school I started studying piano and voice, and performed with the Guitar Program, Jazz Ensemble and Men's Choir. I played solo and with multiple bands, playing rock, acoustic, jazz, rock, metal and classical guitar.
After High School I spent a year studying music at University of Oregon. Though I enjoyed my time at U of O, I left the next year and moved to Boston to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, ...

Each lesson is customized to your learning style and different for everyone depending on what you want to learn. Most of my students like to learn from scratch which would include the following:
In the first 3 lessons you will learn basic guitar fundamentals, basic 1-4-5 song progressions (the stuff that 85% of all music we listen to is made up of), left hand / right hand coordination, picking techniques, how to strum, mute, & play notes on the guitar.
We can play as a band too. When you are ready, I love to bring out the drum or backing tracks to your favorite artists songs while you play ...
I began playing guitar at age 13 (I'm 43 now) and played in rock bands throughout my teens and early 20's. I went on to earn a Master of Music degree in Classical Guitar Performance at CSU Fullerton where I served as tutor and academic advisor for incoming students.
I moved to Tualatin Oregon in 2005 where I taught as many as 75 students per week at various studios and played in the popular local cover band Global FM. Soon after my second child was born in 2009 I cut back on my teaching and gigging and began to focus on my home studio and original music projects. I currently play in two bands: Stoneface Honey and Hip Stew.
Now that the kids are both in school full time, its time for me to get the studio rocking again! I specialize getting students playing the tunes and ...
