I teach guitar from a wide background in many genres. You can expect to learn chord and scale theory, as well as mechanics, tone control, note and key identification, and ear training. We can explore any genre of interest, however my specialties are in blues, rock, classic rock, bluegrass, and country.

About Richard

Music is my life. Since the age of 16, I have studied the guitar extensively. During my high-school years I was involved in band, marching band, choir, and independent music theory. I started my first band when I was 19 in the U.S. Army, and my life has never been the same since. I played music

Richie was an outstanding teacher. We covered on a combination of technique, theory, playing with contrast, phrasing, tone, learning some fun crowd pleaser songs and improvised jamming. He shared a bunch of materials to take my understanding of musicality deeper and how to bring the unique music in me out and put on display. I highly recommend Richie for any skill level of guitarist.
Greg
Richie is a great instructor who strikes a good balance between keeping things new and fun while also creating a healthy challenge. I'm only halfway through my lessons with him, and I've enjoyed each one of them so far!
Richard W.
This was my first lesson with Richard, he was awesome. Richard is very knowledgeable, good listener and explained in detail what we were covering for the lesson this evening. Richard is very patient and explained he enjoys working with beginners, highly recommend Richard if you’re looking to learn to play the guitar. Looking forward to learning more from Richard.

For Barbershoppers I need a smooth transition to my falsetto. Kwame put me at ease, we did some exercises and found the transition without me even noticing the change. He is a gifted teacher. I look forward to our next appointment as we start reading music from the Barbershoppers music book. I did not expect such a warm atmosphere. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Sarah is very easy to work with, always interested in helping you the student have fun with the sax, as she has. Despite her great experience and background (or because of it?) she never seemed bored or working beneath herself with a beginner. I could say more, but I better take this time to practice!
