Brian teaches: Ages 18 to 70
Teaching since: May 2005


I've been playing guitar for over 22 years and teaching full-time for over 11. During that time I've successfully taught players of all ages and degrees of experience, in many styles including rock, funk, blues, folk, alternative, grunge, metal, jazz, fusion, classical, ska, reggae, and pop.

You can hear samples of my playing, including music from my self-released solo album Far Enough Into the Void, and read more about my lessons (including many testimonials from successful students)... In various places on the internet that this particular website will not allow me to link to. If you know how to use a search engine with my name and the instrument I play, you'll find everything you need very quickly.

Thank you for your interest in studying with me, and I look forward to working with you soon!

Had as many as 45 students weekly, consistently received positive feedback and retained students for long periods of time (some of whom continued with me via Skype when I moved to NY).
