I play many instruments, but Guitar is my first instrument. I'll go through a method book together with you, in which you can learn the basics, including note reading, playing some simple chords...After some months this basic course will open a door for you to enter the world of Guitar playing and you'll be able to play many songs. Many of my students are interested to sing to Guitar and I help them to sing to Guitar too because I am a voice instructor too. Guitar is an easy and fun instrument to play.

Learn any song you want from any time. I have a good ear and can pick any song off a CD or YouTube. I can then write it out for you and teach it to you in any key. Don't be afraid, I like to use Tablature so you don't need to be able to read music.

Do you want to play Lead Guitar? I can teach you all the scales, arpeggios & Pentatonics that you need to know to become a rock 'n' roll guitar god!

People will often ask me, “What is a lute?” In truth, the history of the lute is a long one and I often s …
