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!

I am offering engaging lessons for adults or young adults who want to start or continue their study of music! I've been teaching for several years in the Denver area as well as online, covering everything from learning how to strum a guitar through advanced contemporary and jazz theory. Some subjects I've explored with my students include: Reading chord charts, Site reading; sheet music, Classical music, Jazz & Pop Standards, Improvisation, Groove & keeping time, Jamming with other musicians, Songwriting and composition, Music production software (GarageBand, Logic Pro) Everyone has a unique musical style, and the ways in which we learn music are just as diverse! I'm an expert at understanding what my students want to get out of music, and I can help you get to where you want to be musically by basing our lessons around the songs and ideas that you want to learn. Get in touch, let's see what kind of music we can make!
