Music has been my passion for my entire life. I have over 20 years of experience playing guitar, and other instruments on tour and in the recording studio. I have a degree in music and audio and music production. I believe that music should be fun to make the most of it. I can get you to wherever YOU want to get to. You choose your goals, I know I can get you there, and have fun while getting there.
*** Lesson Details ***
In learning any instrument there are 3 key areas that I believe are the keys to success. Keeping the interest, patience, and repetition. My method of teaching is usually to start with the basics. Slow everything down until it becomes second nature and build, build, build. With the right exercises, and the right way to think about the instrument, letting muscle memory do what it does best, you will notice improvement quick. Above all, I make sure enthusiasm is never lost because without it, there is no point. I make the lessons fun and laid back, but always take my job seriously.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect them to provide their own instruments. I can bring an extra guitar for lessons but it is extremely encouraged to have an instrument to practice on.
*** Specialties ***
Although I specialize in rock instrumentation and song writing, I also have the knowledge of classical music theory and jazz. As far as rock music goes, I have plenty of experience in blues based rock and jazz based rock with a very wide catalog of styles under my belt.
For the better part of the last decade, I have been hired by many artists and companies to play guitar while on tour or in the studio.
