Teaches all skill levels
Teaching since 2001
Every Child Can!
Learn the acoustic guitar, one of the world's prettiest-sounding instruments.
I started teaching myself guitar when I was 10. Later, in high-school, my teacher frustrated with my lack of practicing came up with an idea to light a fire under me. They suggested I teach a younger classmate. Not only did I finally start practicing, but I fell in love with teaching as well. Thanks to that, I have played over 1,000 shows, both solo and as an auxiliary musician for other touring acts. I performed on over 30 albums and have composed for radio, television, and internet video series, including sharing the stage with members of the 10,000 Maniacs. I've been featured in The New York Times, on the CBS Evening News, and on NPR. I have over 6 years of experience teaching private lessons in addition to teaching seminars on songwriting and music business at Infinity Visual and Performing Arts and SUNY JCC. While each student is different, I start them on the Mel Bay or Essential Elements books. From there we will cover a variety of genres from classical, jazz, rock and folk. Students will not only learn technical skills( how to play their instrument, read music, understand theory) but also learn about themselves, develop their own voices in and out of the musical world. Whether your 9 year old child wants to be a rockstar when they grow up, or you've just retired at 65 and want to play heavy metal all ages and goals are welcome.
