Overview

Instead of working hard, let's work smart.

After teaching for 5 years and playing for 10, I've learned that the traditional teaching method is not only a big waste of time, but it's the main reason people end up quitting!

First you learn all the chords, the scales, the "classic songs"... But if you learn efficiently, you can be playing your favorite songs - with even less effort.

My philosophy:
No one is born a musician - all it takes is the genuine desire to learn.

I'll guide you through it in a way that keeps you entertained and striving to play.
This way, you can get better every time you play, instead of spending your time memorizing a bunch of stuff that will "all guitarists need to know".

Want to learn to sing along while playing your favorite songs?

If you've already gotten this far, you probably have a pretty strong interest in learning guitar - and that's all you need! The best time to learn is now!

My daughter loved it and thought the instructor was patient and laid back. She loved that he picked out some of her music to practice with.
