Hello!

I am looking forward to advancing your knowledge and understanding of music and how it applies to what you are hoping to achieve in your studies, be it for work or pleasure. I have been playing since I was a young teen and later studied classical and jazz guitar at the University of Missouri - St. Louis, where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music.

Instructor

St. Louis Classical Guitar Society

I teach the fundamentals of melody, harmony and rhythm as it applies to the classical guitar within a classroom setting. The typical class size is 10-12 students and is part of an after school program, which I currently teach in the Ferguson-Florissant school district. The program was developed by the Austin Classical Guitar Society located in Austin, Texas and it is extremely comprehensive. As an educator it is very rewarding because it teaches students to begin playing music together, as a guitar ensemble, on the first day of class.

Charlie is an awesome teacher and my 6 year old enjoys the guitar lessons. We like him so much better than the original independent teacher we had, with whom we felt rushed all the time, and we didn't get our money worth. With Charlie is different, he is patient and has the right approach for kids beginners; we highly recommend him to others.
