Hello future music students!

My name is Dalton McLaughlin and I have been teaching guitar for about two years now. I have been playing for around ten years, and continue to grow and love the guitar and music each and every day.

I graduated summa cum laude from San Francisco State in 2015 with a BM in classical guitar performance.
I am currently studying with David Lesiner at the Manhattan School of Music to receive my MM in classical guitar performance.

I enjoy playing and teaching many different styles of guitar including classical, flamenco, folk, pop, acoustic fingerstyle, rock, and blues.
