Interested in playing the guitar? I've had over ten years of experience teaching the guitar, and even more time using the instrument in live performance. If you're a beginner, we can start from the ground up; we'll learn how to hold the guitar, how to tune, and how to strum your first chords. From there, we'll build the lessons around you-what you want to learn and the music you want to play! All music requires you to learn, but I believe your learning experience should be fun, so come into your first lesson thinking about the songs you want to play, because I'll have you strumming it in no time!

I played bass and sang background vocals in a worship band called Skyline from 2007 to 2009. I taught music and trained a student led worship team at Hope Christian Academy from ...
