Teaching since:
2013

I am a professional singer/songwriter and guitarist with a degree from Berklee College of Music. I have been performing throughout the country, particularly in the Midwest and East Coast, as an original singer/songwriter, and wedding and private event musician since 2013. My original material has received national media attention, including a feature on Iowa Public Radio, and has been featured as the #1 singer/songwriter on ReverbNation.

In the evenings, I have a full schedule of private events and weddings. During the day, I enjoy sharing what I know with students of all ages and backgrounds. My passion is music, and I would love the chance to help you learn and fall in love with playing music as well.

During the first lesson, I like to talk with you about your goals and how you learn best. I always tailor my lessons to the needs of the individual student, and believe it is my responsibility as a teacher to make learning fun and engaging for the student.

I have several options of standard coursework we can follow if a weekly plan is best. Otherwise, I enjoy following the student's lead and spending our time together on what you would like to work on.

If you are looking for a teacher who will inspire you to reach your best potential as a musician, who will make learning a fun and rewarding experience, please reach out to me and let's start playing.

Very professional and talented musician. Asher is especially skilled at fingerstyle and classical guitar but is able to meet unique needs of his students (whether their interests are original work, songwriting, electric guitar or all of the above). I had a great experience learning from him and would highly recommend.
