Have you ever wanted to play an instrument or sing? Do you have a genuine passion for music? My lessons properly prepare students for what is needed to execute their journey as a musician. Lessons will be customized to meet the needs of the students. I have five years of teaching students from ages five to fifty and over twenty years of experience as a musician. Students will learn core music essentials such as music theory, ear training, sight reading, and more. And for songwriters I offer lessons on songwriting and structuring.

An experienced guitar player of 15 years. Especially good with beginners including both very young and older students. It's never too early or late to start playing! Will cater a specific personal lesson plan to your desires to make sure we move at YOUR best pace. We'll build a solid foundation so that you can learn how to teach yourself and continue to grow and love music long after these lessons. We can get you up and running with your favorite tunes or start delving into the musical theory side of things. I make sure that our lessons are fun but also challenging and I make sure we spend some time learning how to build finger strength, how to improvise, and (most importantly) how to play with other musicians!

When it comes to arranging and composing music, I sometimes feel like I fall short as a musician. I usually have a multitude of ideas and some sections written in my head but I struggle with piecing everything together in a coherent way, luckily I have had the pleasure of knowing Will for a number of years, and thankfully he has helped me in this area time and time again, and the finished product is always better than the initial concept. He has a remarkable capability to recive musical ideas from others and weave those ideas into a final arrangement without straying far from the initial ideas. Like I said, I've worked with him a couple times in the past and I'll work with him again every opportunity I can, because the quality of his work and the final product is always remarkable.
David
Will helped me learn the structure of guitar chords and scales while answering any questions that I had when beginning guitar. Throughout my lessons he gave me information about chord diagrams and scale diagrams while putting an emphasis on a guitar's fretboard layout and individual notes. This knowledge allowed me to progress and learn even more about how to properly play and enjoy the guitar. The instruction was done objectively, with attention to detail, and was a great experience.

I also look forward to learning more about musical programs and production thanks to Will.
Laura
Attentive to detail. Great at structuring lessons based on the student’s needs.

"Eric is the real deal as a guitar teacher. I personally play the guitar myself, but as any parent knows when it comes to teaching your own child there is going to be some resistance no matter what! Lol. Eric is very well educated in music and has the rapport to teach beginners as well as advanced students. My son looks forward to his time with Eric and considers him a friend as well! In closing, if your looking for an instructor that has a solid music background that can channel that knowledge into your child or self, look no further!"
