My goal as an instructor is to keep the lessons fresh, fun, interesting, and to ultimately guide the students to better teach themselves as they gain experience and familiarity with the instrument and music. Students can have their lessons catered to the music and styles they wish to pursue. Lessons are tailored to each individual student so that we can build upon their strengths and focus on lessons to improve weaker areas. Students will learn how to build dexterity, use proper technique, and be creative. Every student has different goals, some really want to learn theory and read music. Others may simply want to learn to strum a few chords. Whatever the goal, I can provide the instructions to help the student succeed!

METHODS, STYLES, & LESSONS The goal at Prestige Guitar is to keep the lessons fresh, interesting, and to ultimately guide the students to educate themselves as they gain experience and familiarity with the instrument. With lessons that are tailored to the styles our students wish to pursue, we can build upon strengths and focus on opportunities to improve weaker areas. Every student is unique. For some, music becomes a passion, others, a new hobby. Whatever the goal, Prestige Guitar is here to help. I am a professional guitarist with a degree in music from Western Kentucky University from 2014-2017 with an emphasis in guitar under Professor John Martin. He has played guitar for 19 years in a variety of styles ranging from classical, jazz, blues, rock, metal, finger style, and many others. I have also studied under the phenomenal jazz-fusion guitarist Dani Rabin, Kieran Johnston, Dr. Marshall Scott and Grammy Award winner guitarist Greg Martin. All ages and skill levels accepted. In addition to guitar I am also a composer, arranger and also play a variety of other instruments as bass, piano, ukulele, mandolin, percussion, and extended range guitars. Works with several music production softwares such as Finale, Cubase, Garage Band, Logic, Protools, and Sound Slice. Has worked with artists, audio engineers, and producers such as Chris Robertson (Black Stone Cherry), Russell Brooks (The Schools, 00 The Rabbit, Bucky Dent, Solo artist) John King (Sixth Floor, South Bound, Mud River Revival), Kenton Embry (Nashville Session player and touring artist), David Barrick (Producer/Recording Engineer Barrick Studios), Jason Simpson (Colter Wall), Joel Whittinghill (8 time fiddle, mandolin, and bluegrass guitar champion). I also have an extensive knowledge of music theory as well as ear training, harmony, solfege and sight reading just to name a few. At his alma mater was a member in the guitar ensemble, guitar quartet, jazz band, and classical solo guitar. Studied music theory, jazz improv, orchestral arranging, piano, choral arranging, ear training, musical form & analysis, conducting, aural skills, music drama, and music history.
