*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher, but I definitely expect students to practice what I suggest they practice. I advise that students use method books or sheet music of some sort, and I will certainly make notes for them and create materials they can learn from. I always teach based on the goals of the student and what type of music they enjoy, but I also like to guide the student in a direction I think would benefit them. I usually introduce music to play right away, conforming of course to the skill level and interest of the student. I now play seven-string guitar, which is just a six-string guitar (same tuning and technique) with an extra low string. It will be practical to aide students by accompanying with a bass range instrument.
*** Specialties ***
I consider myself a Jazz musician, but I am happy to consider a very wide range of styles. I am focusing now on music of the Spanish Golden Age, 1500-1700.

He's also a patient teacher which I appreciate. He didn't get frustrated when I struggled. Instead he focused on figuring out a different way of explaining the issue I was struggling with. We always found a way in the end.
He's also just a fascinating guy so lessons are more interesting and not just transactional. I've had other teachers in the past who were good but I didn't look forward to the lessons. It's easier to make progress when you have a creative and inspiring time with your teacher. Thanks Alex!
All levels are welcome
