January 2005

Hello there,

I am a Singer/Songwriter/Musician with over 20 years of experience recording and performing. Based out of New York i have a loyal clientele and fan base. Creating powerful lyrics, heartfelt melodies & catchy acoustic guitar progressions. Through the years I have captured what it entails to teach someone how to play the guitar from the soul.
***For students convenience I travel The Metro New York Area & The Five Boroughs***

Whether you're a beginner or more advanced, age 5 or 105, in my experience, with just a little bit of practice each day anyone can learn to play guitar.
Maybe your goal is to simply learn to play your favorite songs or maybe you want to learn to write your own music, improvise, or perform live.
Like all good things in life, there are no shortcuts, and learning the guitar takes time and effort, but in return you get the ability to express yourself through music, which is one of the most rewarding skills anyone could ever learn, at any age and in any situation.

Together we will discuss your personalized course, based on your goals and situation, and along the way I will provide materials/tools and a summary or a recording of each lesson as needed, for you to take home to work on.
