Private Guitar Teacher

I am a full time guitarist, songwriter, producer and touring musician! I have been teaching professionally for over 7 years and love working with beginners, intermediate players, as well as those who are looking to enhance their own personal songwriting and unique approach . From kids to adults, I look and draw from a curriculum that caters towards individual needs and goals and set up a weekly plan to enhance and cultivate a routine and daily practice surrounding musical growth. I grew up playing in the blues community, and a lot of my foundation is rooted in this theory, however I have learned a lot along the way and have a set of tools and roadmaps that accommodate differently for each age range and lesson plan. I have in I also play the bass, sing and work with electronic production to arrange for songwriters and live shows. If you are older in age and need any help on the business side of planning your trajectory or are wanting to grow some skills for taking music to the stage, ...

My primary goal as a teacher is to present musical material in a way that keeps students excited about what they are learning. Even with absolute beginners, I will have a student playing actual songs that they are interested in as quickly as possible. Along with way I include fundamentals such as scales, strength-building exercises, rudiments of theory, and ear training.
I also use interactive music websites to introduce students to concepts of music theory.

I specialize in "shred guitar". That said, I love teaching students anything they want to learn. Let's make it fun and learn songs and styles you really want rather than me forcing you to learn the boring textbook stuff. I can teach you anything from songs of your favorite bands to solos, tuning, theory, etc... Lets do this! I have a teaching style that makes it easy and fun.

He is fun, witty, and his finger-picking style (he uses no pick) is simply amazing. He also sings and harmonizes quite well. I've learned quite a bit from him during our time together."
