I have been playing guitar for just over 10 years now. I typically begin with guitar when writing a song and love playing along to just about anything. With diligent practice, a new student on the guitar can expect to be able to play basic solos, read tablature and chord charts after just a few weeks. I particularly enjoy working with singer/songwriters who have intermediate experience on guitar because I have a handful of shortcuts and ways of thinking, that connect all the dots and cultivate musical proficiency in any genre. As with all instruments, the ability to replicate what you hear in music you listen to, is the most useful thing I can teach you. This is done with ear training and music theory (pattern based learning).
My musical background is uniquely rooted in classical training and popular music (non-classical) experience. I have professionally played toured and/or taught on a variety of instuments including Bass, Drums, Guitar, Piano, Ukulele and Voice for the past 8 years all over the world. My main focus ha

My method is centered around having my students consistently learn new material, while retaining what they have learned. I’m sensitive to making sure they are challenged while also giving them material that will enable them to succeed. I customize each lesson to meet the needs and interests of each student. An example of a 45 minute lesson commonly includes the first 5 minutes being dedicated to checking in on how the practice went, and answering any questions the student may have about the material. Then there would be 15 minutes of review which would consist of finding which parts of the material are most challenging and finding the most effective way for the student to practice those parts and perfect the material. After that, there would be a three minute pause during which the student would listen to the new piece (whether it be material I introduced or material they suggested) so they can write down everything that they enjoyed and perceived about the new piece. Then there ...

My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are:
1. theory -- if you know your theory, you know the best way to express your idea without having to think about it
2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally
When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it

I've been taking lessons with Eric since about the Spring of 2013 and have made huge progress in my playing ability since.
I started learning on my own through online lessons, but decided to take lessons with a private instructor after about 5-6 months when I decided I wanted to learn to play Jazz 'proper'.
Eric explains many of the written and unwritten 'rules' of Jazz and has helped my understanding of how to play enormously. I am still at a beginner stage, but I can see myself making good progress.
I went from knowing only basic open chords and some basic jazz chord voicings to learning heaps of new scales and chords to keep me busy and learn the basic building blocks of Jazz - learning how to comp, play melodies, improvise, and learn how to build chord-melody arrangements. Eric is well versed in many types of music and he can relate what we learn to many other styles as well. We cover musical concepts by playing them, hearing how they sound, and also covering what they are theoretically. His teaching method is very comprehensive and I enjoy that.
Eric puts a lot of new information in my lap at every lesson, which I always look forward to, but he is also very patient and understanding. He knows it takes time to be able to understand and execute everything properly. He is also very supportive during the week away from our lessons. He will send you extra info when you need it and will explain anything that needs clarification via email and is usually pretty quick to respond.
We go a little off tangent every once in awhile, but it's all in good fun.
Eric's a great teacher and I look forward to continuing lessons with him in the future."
When you’re first learning to play guitar, it's important to develop the dexterity and coordination of your left and the right hands. To be able to use both hands is our initial goal and this takes a good amount of practice. If you’re going to spend hours practicing, you might as well use that time to learn something that you like to play. After all, it is much more fun to practice songs in a genre that you like, rather than practicing a piece in a style that you don’t like. So, if you …
