If you want to confidently play to your favorite songs, I'm the right instructor for you.

Throughout my music career, I've realized the traditional teaching method is the main reason people end up quitting.

Most instructors will teach you all the basics and then when you're ready, you can start to learn the songs you like..

But I do it differently.

The reality is that with the right guidance, you can go directly into the fun part - jamming out to your favorite songs.

**The genres I specialize in are anything related to rock, pop, alt, metal, and reggae. **



--

With my technique and properly set goals, you can grow your skills quickly and reduce the amount of time and energy spent on inefficient practicing.

What you'll learn is that most songs are based on a formula.
You can get better every time you pick up the guitar, instead of memorizing a bunch of stuff that "all musicians need to know".

If you've already gotten this far, you probably have a pretty strong interest in playing - and thats all you need to be a great musician.

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.
