Hello! I'm a supportive, positive and patient teacher who is passionate about helping my students. Each individual student learns differently and with my professional performance background and having studied in the world renown Guitar Institute of Technology(GIT) program at Musicians Institute, I have gained a well rounded skill set to guide my students in achieving their musical goals.
*** Lesson Details ***
I require all of my students to own their own Guitar, Instrument Cable(Electric). I supply most of the lesson material except for the suggested reading books that I recommend for purchase. Of course we can go right into custom tailoring lessons and working on whatever the student wishes to work on. But, I have found through my years of teaching all levels and ages that my suggested curriculum for beginners yields great results.
Beginner - Intermediate:
Suggested Reading Material:
Hal Leonard Guitar Method Book 1, published by Hal Leonard.
Intermediate - Advanced:
Suggested Reading Material: Music Reading for Guitar (Complete Method) published by Musicians Institute.
*** Specialties ***
Styles of music I specialize in: Blues, Rock, Funk, R&B, Soul, Top 40 & Pop
Pop, Reggae, Funk, Disco, R&B, Blues & Some Rock cover band that gigs weekly around Northern California.
Providing Guitar duties to anyone or bands needing a guitar player for a certain performance/gig.
