I started classical guitar with Phillip de Fremery (a student of Segovia) at college after playing electric guitar since age 12. To hear my repertoire see "Christmas Songs for Guitar" and "Renaissance and Romance"on Amazon. I specialize in children beginners as young as 6 years old. Adults, too, can learn from scratch or any level.

Instructor gave me clear cut directions for success. We opted to meet once per week instead of twice.
