Hello! My Name is Anthony I go by 'Bo', And I have been teaching for 12 years now. I am 28 years old and have played guitar professionally with several different touring acts. I've had the privilege of playing along side Buddy Guy, David Allen Coe, Whey Jennings, and Lonnie Brooks to name a few. My favorite thing about music is being able to teach it. I love the feeling of watching someone grow and develop into an artist. Everyone learns differently and needs a personalized lesson plan based on their own musical interests and goals. I put a lot of time into my students because I genuinely get a lot out of seeing them grow : )

It's hard to top a teacher with the real world playing experience Bo has. Working with people like Buddy guy and the Brooks family. Phenomenal blues player and teacher. He prepared me for the stage and soon my little ones!

Bo is a great teacher and the best guitarist I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I'd recommend him to anyone who wants to truly understand music.

No came to my house to help me prepare to play with my church. He accommodated my schedule and was on time. He evaluated my current skills and began to build on my skills from there. We talked about learning techniques that would help my practice. We worked on music theory at a level that I could understand and not get overwhelmed.
I enjoy working with Bo and continue to grow with his teaching. He is a very talented and knowledgeable musician that has a patient approach to teaching.
I strongly recommend him for any level of teaching.

Anthony is very passionate about music and he makes sure you leave the lesson feeling the same way! From beginners to advanced musicians he always has something he can teach you, whether it's music theory, chord progressions, rhythm, lead, tablature, and so much more. If you are looking for a patient, understanding music teacher that designs your lesson based on you as a person then you've found him!
