I am a highly experienced professional musician, who has performed and shared the stage with national artists such as Derek Trucks, Maceo Parker, Mother's Finest, Arrested Development, G-Love and Special Sauce, Tone Loc, and Gregg Allman. I currently play with Deep Blue Sun and HEADLINER in the Atlanta area and Southeast region. My students receive fundamental knowledge, but more importantly, they have fun. I love music, and I love displaying that passion to my students.
*** Lesson Details ***
Fundamental music theory is important, but having fun is the most important aspect of my program. I try to provide the student with instant success, so that the discipline of practicing feels like less of a chore. Students are encouraged to explore the ocean of music out there, to choose their own musical goals, and music history/appreciation is emphasized.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide any equipment needed.

Benjamin- thanks so much for being so flexible and available- Mark will take those basics you gave him and will use them to advance his playing- you gave him exactly what he needed even if he didn't acknowledge it as well as he should have
