I have been teaching guitar, full time, professionally, for over 10 years. Even if you think you're one of those people that "just doesn't get it" you will, and I can help. From teaching beginners their first chords, to taking advanced players to the next level of chops and understanding, I've been there. Let's rock!

I like to make learning an instrument fun and easy to fit into your schedule!

If you're an adult finally getting around to learning your dream instrument or a child following your passion of playing music I tailor your lessons specifically to you. We look at what you want to play, pick specific songs that you want to learn, and learn the techniques you need to play these songs. It sounds simple, but it's so effective and much more fun to learn this way!

"My daughter has been taking lessons with Tom for over 6 years - and loves it! When she started with Tom she was a very new guitarist and now she is a proficient guitar and bass player and continues to learn new techniques and nuances enabling her to pursue a future career in music. She is now in college for music and because of Tom’s music theory lessons, she was able to start at the 2nd year level of music theory at her school. Tom’s style of mixing music theory, performance and fun is what has kept her going, week after week. Tom has also worked with her on writing and recording her music. My favorite lessons have been where Tom has put a group of the kids together to learn and play as a band – giving the kids a performance confidence that they otherwise would never have had. I highly recommend Tom to students of all ages – he is amazing!"

"Just had lesson number two with Lars. I've never played any instrument before and am having a great time. Lars is patient and encouraging when teaching. I'm having a blast and hope he finds as much enjoyment teaching as I do learning. Growing up in the 60's doesn't allow me much time to become proficient. There just aren't that many years left in me. I won't be playing any Freebird riffs anytime soon, but I'm pretty confident as I learn more with Lars I'll be able to play a few ditties around the fire pit. Looking for a good instructor, he's your guy!"

"I learned a lot in my first lesson with Brian. He clearly knows the guitar inside and out. The pace was on the faster side, but he answered all my questions about technique and theory. Beyond what I wanted to focus on (technique), he's laying a solid foundation for theory so that I don't have go rely on the capo or online tabs as much. He also gave me useful scale exercises to build up finger independence and articulation. So far so good."

"I studied guitar lessons under Mr. Greg for a period of time before I had shoulder surgery. The lessons were very beneficial for me and he is a great instructor. He went out of his way to help me learn guitar with my dyslexia. He is very patient, understanding, and a great instructor. I would recommendhis gifted guitar lessons to anyone and I plan on returning for more lessons.
Thank you,
