Teaching since:
April 1996

I have been teaching in public schools for more than 15 years and have played for award winning bands. With me you will sound great on the guitar in a short period of time even if you are a beginner. You will learn everything from simple chords and strumming to screaming leads.

*** Lesson Details ***
My motto is "make learning fun!" I cater to what the student wants to learn. I can figure out most songs by ear and teach it. With beginning students I start with the basics. How to hold the guitar and pick and not develop bad habits. As the students progress they can learn more theory. Scales and modes and how they pertain to chord structure. Most all of my students find me funny and entertaining. You WILL have fun in my class!

*** Studio Equipment ***
living room w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
guitars, amps, keyboards (picks cords etc)

*** Specialties ***
I grew up on rock and roll but teach most performance art and simplify theory to give children and adults the confidence to sound good and get inspired to learn more.

Weve only had 3-4 lessons but Things seem to be going well. My son is 12 and is more into sports than music but brian is able to hold his attention by making it fun and informational and is focusing on music that my son likes. Like Santana/mike Jackson/jimi Hendricks. I would recommend brian to a friend
