Private Guitar Teacher

I teach every student the technical skills and applied theory necessary to work in any contemporary style on guitar. I use the "Be better than you have to be" approach. Want to be the best on a bad day? Be better than your chosen style requires. I studied classical and jazz in order to excel at rock, folk and blues.
You will learn to read music and charts for guitar, as well as movable scale patterns, movable chord forms, and how to apply it all to master the fretboard.
Have you hit a road block? I can help. Are you brand new and want to be sure you understand the instrument completely? I can help.

I've been teaching guitar for 5 years helping students develop a love for the instrument and learn more about music along the way. There are many styles I'm comfortable teaching from folk (fingerpicking or flatpicking), rock, blues and funk and I would love working on developing a unique style of your own. Within the first few lessons you'll have a solid base of strumming, picking and chord changes and even a few simple songs under your belt. Moving on from there I will craft lessons to move you toward a "goal song," making sure to cater your progress to your needs while keeping a focus on good technique. I enjoy working with students of all ages and experiences and I can't wait to meet you!

I studied jazz guitar with Derek DiCenzo at Ohio State University, and have performed extensively in the genres of rock, blues, country, and classical music.

Since 1998, I have taught as many as forty private students per week, many of whom have gone on to pursue the instrument through college, conservatory, and performance.

"Great musician, great teacher

I've been taking lessons with Eric since about the Spring of 2013 and have made huge progress in my playing ability since.

I started learning on my own through online lessons, but decided to take lessons with a private instructor after about 5-6 months when I decided I wanted to learn to play Jazz 'proper'.

Eric explains many of the written and unwritten 'rules' of Jazz and has helped my understanding of how to play enormously. I am still at a beginner stage, but I can see myself making good progress.

I went from knowing only basic open chords and some basic jazz chord voicings to learning heaps of new scales and chords to keep me busy and learn the basic building blocks of Jazz - learning how to comp, play melodies, improvise, and learn how to build chord-melody arrangements. Eric is well versed in many types of music and he can relate what we learn to many other styles as well. We cover musical concepts by playing them, hearing how they sound, and also covering what they are theoretically. His teaching method is very comprehensive and I enjoy that.

Eric puts a lot of new information in my lap at every lesson, which I always look forward to, but he is also very patient and understanding. He knows it takes time to be able to understand and execute everything properly. He is also very supportive during the week away from our lessons. He will send you extra info when you need it and will explain anything that needs clarification via email and is usually pretty quick to respond.

We go a little off tangent every once in awhile, but it's all in good fun.

Eric's a great teacher and I look forward to continuing lessons with him in the future."

If you’re a beginner with reasonable dexterity and you’re serious about learning, you’ll find the blues scale to be extremely useful. For intermediate guitarists, this scale is essential, but it’s also important to understand that scales are merely the alphabet of the blues language. It's important to go beyond that and play real blues melodies as well, so you can start to better understand …
