I am a long-time teacher and pro player who understands what students need to know to get to their goals. I work with all levels and ages of students and fine-tune my method for each of them so that every student gets a great musical experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a goal-focused teacher and use a number of methods of instruction depending on who the student happens to be. I expect students to practice and put themselves into their lessons, as that is the only way progress happens. I use books from Hal Leonard, Berklee College of Music, and Musicians' Institute, as well as my own custom-made lesson material, recordings, and videos.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Fender, Marshall, and Silvertone amps.
iMac running Pro Tools 8
M Audio studio monitors
Boss and TC Electronic tuners

*** Specialties ***
I can teach the traditional method book style as well as teach popular guitar styles like rock, blues, country, funk, and acoustic. With advanced students, my strengths are theory, soloing, and improvisation. I can also teach songwriting, basic recording techniques, music business, and performance preparation.
