I teach you to be a musician, not just an instrumentalist. There is a huge difference. I give you material to learn while doing my best to make it fun as well. I teach you the basics and build on that foundation. You can learn the material as fast or as slow as you want. However, it is not a canned approach because every student is unique and your learning styles reflect that. My goal is your success, truly!
Learn the subtleties of what makes blues guitar its own unique style, and learn how to break away from the typical "rock template" to set your blues style apart from the rest... and make it your own!
From Acoustic Delta Blues to High energy big band Chicago Blues as well as Stevie Ray Vaughn Texas Blues
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.
