My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are: 1. theory -- notice i say theory, not rules. learning music theory is not about learning rigid rules that will stifle your creativity. when you learn theory, you learn to identify patterns and give them names so you can remember and reuse them. the more you know your theory, the more ways you know to express your ideas 2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally. and really, why would you not want to be the best you can be? When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it

I have taught guitar since 2012 and have been playing since 2000. I am happy to take students at the beginner and intermediate levels. I believe strongly in integrating music theory and ultimately moving students toward musical self-suffiency, rather than focusing exclusively on learning particular pieces.

You will learn all the modern techniques and have a solid foundation on fretboard knowledge. Whether you want to learn how to improvise, create or be self sufficient to teach yourself any type of music no matter what style it is, you will be able to.

In my lessons, I focus on teaching songs, scales, chords, and music theory. I also like to teach my students to read music if they are interested in that. I will teach whatever genres my students are interested in, help them reach their individual goals, and develop their love for music.

Lessons are simple & easy for all ages of begginner guitarists! Learn your favorite songs right away! Each lesson will consist of a unique and personalized curriculum to fit your needs! This will be done at a pace that allows for confidence to be built and a complete understanding of the material to become a pro guitar player! Along with your favorite songs, each student is taught what I call 'beginning fundimentals'. These are a basic set of skills that can help any guitarist become an independent and self-sufficient musician with a strong fundamental foundation. Crucial skills such as: reading music TAB scales various chords playing your favorite songs and more... will be taught in each lesson. Each lesson will be just as enjoyable as it is informative. *Note for in-person lessons at teacher's location* Due to current circumstances mask and temp check are required for in person lessons at teacher's locations. Thank you for helping keep everyone safe!
