About Alan E.

Hello!

I am a guitar player with a wide variety of experience in music ranging from free jazz to classical guitar orchestra playing.

I am also a teacher with over 10 years of experience working with students at any age and skill level. I am currently faculty at Settlement School of Music and have previously taught guitar at School of Rock.

I offer a mix of jazz, classical, Suzuki, and rock based guitar lessons. I aim to pull from any or all of these sources to get you inspired to play.
