Bluegrass is one of the most excited guitar styles, and has been a great source of inspiration to me over my life of studying music. We can delve into the dazzling stylings of master flatpickers like Tony Rice and Norman Blake, and cover the nuances of bluegrass rhythm styles. I can also demystify how bluegrass players learn to improvise with ease and musicality over the songs and progressions that make up this rich repertoire. Tune up your Martin box and join me!

See "Guitar" for more information Similar to learning acoustic guitar but with more emphasis on the common bluegrass picking techniques, chord progressions, and various scales. Emphasis on improvisation when dealing with the lead aspect of bluegrass music.

I'm a guitarist and educator based out of Raleigh, NC. I received training at the University of South Carolina (Bachelors of Music, 2011) and East Carolina University (Masters of Music, 2015). I am an active performer in the Triangle area, drawing inspiration from American roots music, classical, and jazz traditions. I have seen hundreds of students over ten years of private teaching, working with beginner to advanced students of all age levels. I teach in a wide range of styles, and I specialize in classical guitar and flatpicking (bluegrass/old time). I hope to help you along as you grow as a musician and a guitarist!

Fifty years ago, I was listening to Bluegrass musicians on the back porches of rural North Carolina, so this music is in my veins and I can teach you how to play it. You'll learn some basic exercises to develop core skills including basic to advanced chord formations, fingerpicking "banjo rolls," rhythm guitar styles, riffs and fills - gradually increasing technical challenges as your skills grow. Soon you'll find yourself moving smoothly between chords without missing a beat, playing by ear, or writing your own songs. I'm often asked if you need to read music to learn guitar, and while it can be useful for advanced students, it is not necessary for beginners, and I don't place a lot of emphasis on it. While my approach is grass-roots, you'll learn to "work smarter, not harder," use scientifically-based learning techniques to train your brain and build "muscle memory." I believe that playing music should be enjoyable, and you should also be able to have a lot of fun in the process of learning it! Of course, it's important to devote regular time to practice in between lessons to make steady progress. This effort will bring its own reward as you start playing with greater ease of expression, and your self-motivation will help you gain momentum. I look forward to working with you and seeing your progress as you unfold your potential!

We will cover the fundamentals (technique, scales, chords, note reading (not for everyone), and as the student progresses, we will cover more sophisticated concepts of improvisation and performance with special attention to 'bluegrass' artists and repertoire.
