You got to know the rules 1st, before you can then break the rules. This is how you develop your own unique style. And it's what separates the Pro Players from the rest of the pack.
But even if you don't want to play professionally, maybe you just want to learn a few chords, licks, songs, for yourself, or to impress friends. That's okay too!
I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students.
That's what music is all about. Learning & trading tips and licks from other musicians.
Bottom Line Is... I can help you learn and progress on your instrument faster...
Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

Learn acoustic guitar technique, how to solo and improvise, music theory skills, your favorite songs and how to write your own!
Majoring in classical guitar performance at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts I was a part of many performance opportunities. These included solo classical guitar recitals, weekly performance class, a collaboration with the Columbia City Jazz Dance Company, and a performance at the Columbia Museum of Art to name a few. Now I frequently participate in songwriting showcases, street performances, and collaborations with bands and music groups of many different genres.
In a lesson with me you will be focusing on four main areas:
1] REPERTOIRE: Songs you are working o
2] MUSIC THEORY: Exercises in ear training, note-reading skills, sight-reading skills, and overall knowledge of how music works.
3] IMPROVISATION: Learn drills to improve solo skills and increase your confidence jamming with other musicians.
4] TECHNIQUE: Guitar lessons focuses on how to properly use the left and right hands in a way that that is relaxed and tension free. Voice lessons entail learning how to breath properly, prevent vocal strain, and expand your range.
In addition to instrument lessons I also provide Songwriting Lessons, Music Theory Lessons, and Music Performance Lessons for more advanced students + I teach Recording, Web Design, and Graphic Design subjects for Artists or others looking to learn how to promote themselves or their projects.

Guitar lessons are a fun, laid-back, and encouraging experience for anyone to pursue. My lessons are specifically designed to accomplish the goals of the student, whether it's as simple as playing along with your favorite songs, or obtaining the musical foundation to begin writing your own songs. Former students have thanked me for being laid-back, non-rigid, and down to earth. My diverse musical background lets me offer students of any genre a fast track to learning the skills they desire, and having fun along the way as well!
Most of my musical experience has entailed Rock, Indie-Rock, Blues, Acoustic, Bossa Nova, and Experimental/Contemporary. If students are looking to expand into a genre which I am not necessarily familiar with, I am always able to examine and learn the material myself in order to pass along to the student.
My students always decide the curriculum and pace which they would like their lessons to held at. I make sure to break the lesson down into simp

Over 20 years of teaching experience in Europe and Los Angeles. Since I worked as a professional musician so long, and played most of the styles of music on stage, I am very aware of different techniques of the Nylon String, Acoustic and Electric Guitar. I can also help with Latin, Brazilian Bossa-Nova, Jazz, Blues and Rock. I studied Music Theory and Composition extensively which makes my Guitar lessons more fun. All ages welcome, let's learn the Guitar and have a great time.
Music is my passion. I teach guitar students all different ages and levels. I worked professionally as a guitar and bass player for 2 decades, touring, and recording with artists all over the world. I have great and fun material for both guitar and bass guitar students which fits their levels perfectly. I also teach the Ukulele, and it has been one of the most fun experiences for me to connect with students working on Ukulele. I believe anyone can play the Uke.
Studying orchestration require me to
Since I have amazing opportunities to compose music for film and network TV shows, I got requests from students to teach them recording software, such as Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, and Garage Band as well as sample libraries. I can help you get better and faster on recording DAW.
I am open to work with anyone on any styles. Some of my favorites genres are: Classical, Jazz, Funk, Bossa Nova, Latin Jazz, Rock, Blues, Film Music and World Music. I look forward to meeting you, and be a part of your musical journey.

Looking for someone to help you reach that next level? Whatever your stringed instrument, I can guide you there. From the rank basics to traditional tunes, to timing and tone, technique and theory, I can show you what you need to make your journey easier. Rely on my 15 years of music teaching experience to save you countless hours of bewilderment and frustration!
My journey as a musician which began at the age of 8 has now carried me to 48 states and a dozen countries, including 4 tours in continental Europe. I spent 7+ years performing, recording, and giving workshops with talented acoustic acts based in Nashville and the southeast. I am lucky to have been involved and contributed to a handful of IBMA and Grammy-nominated albums.
Increasingly, however, I turn my focus toward private teaching.
I find great joy and pride in helping a student reach their goals and surprise themselves with their own potential.
Go ahead and get in touch, and let's try a session together!
I've been so pleased to carry this background experience into my work as a teacher of these stringed instruments. It's such a great value to be able to answer what questions people have about the professional touring life!
When involved in any part of the musical realm, it quickly becomes evident that everyone is unique in their learning style, and we all have an equally unique set of goals for our own music.
My goal is to meet students where they are and guide them to a high level of enjoyment and understanding of the music they play. My wish is to give you a comma
On all instruments offered, I show students new skills through tunes and songs and add new variations to exercise ability and stretch the imagination. On the way, I strive to aid and challenge the development of students' ears in light, constructive ways.
We’ll walk through the fundamentals together and go over techniques and exercises that help musicians get the most out of an instrument. We’ll listen in detail to the tone and quality of the music we produce, and adjust lesson material to the areas that will most benefit the student.
And, we’ll focus on becoming stress and tension free players, creating clear paths for the music that you mean to play.
I enjoy helping people enter new circles and find fulfillment collaborating with other musicians. These environments are where you'll have the opportunity to apply principles learned in formal instruction, and more importantly, where you get to create your own voice! Expect to hear some advice from me on being a team player...
I’m always happy to provide quality tablature and other forms of notation when appropriate and have taught many the basics of the Nashville Number System.
Yet, I do believe acquiring the skill of simply 'hearing and doing' to be a key milestone in the path to musical freedom, and I tend to devote some time to nurturing this trait. With practice and diligence, you can play anything you hear!
