Private Guitar Teacher

I am a professional guitarist with international touring experience, endorsements, and qualifications in theory and composition. I have been teaching private lessons to students aged 8 to 65 for several years. Tailoring the lessons to reach the your goals, we can explore areas such as learning your favorite songs, writing your own, while forming a solid basis of musical knowledge, and the tools you will need to grow into a capable and fluent musician.

From my experiences in independent bands, I can also offer consultations and advice on soliciting endorsements, creating press kits, writing press releases, and other ways to promote your album.

My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.
Kathleen
Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!

Mark is a great teacher he has given me a great base to build from, Even though I have never read music his ability to add that into our lessons has helped greatly in understanding what I am learning. Mark is talented and easy to follow in his teaching. He tailors the lessons to your abilities while moving along quickly. Best of all he takes the time to review your progress and answer all your questions. Could not be happier with him as my teacher."
