I am twenty four years old and a 16 year old musician. I began playing piano by ear and then focused on guitar and singing. I studied classical guitar with Cheryl Fitiak, an Akron guitar performance graduate who recently earned her masters degree as well.
With my knowledge of theory I can help you develop in any style of music and set a solid foundation for your playing. I have taken courses in the Baldwin-Wallace conservatory of Music and the Berklee College of Music. With this knowledge I am very confident in offering contemporary and traditional practices. Music is a hobby of mine and a passion for life. With good practice in music comes good life practice. Patience, memory, coordination, and development will be developed and elevated if you stick to an instrument. I am here to make this possible for you with the guitar.
*** Lesson Details ***
This is your personal lesson. We will figure out which style you would like to focus on, whether its classical or rock and blues. Then I will have recommendations on a couple books to begin using with the lessons. Basically, if you have any specific goals we will work to achieve them. If you don't have any idea where to start, don't worry! Whether you know it or not, you already have an understanding of music from hearing it all your life.
