Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My love has always been rock guitar so that's what you'll get with me; hard rock, country rock, rock and roll, rockabilly... you get the idea. Beginners need to learn to crawl before they can rock but everything learned will be for a definite purpose and not just because that's how it's always been done. Intermediate students will learn the guitar parts from a variety of songs in order to develop manual dexterity and a develop a basis for learning theory. Advanced students help develop their own curriculum.

Teaching since:

I have played the guitar my entire life and never lost my love for it (even when I tried!). I have a bachelor's degree in guitar from Wichita State University where I studied with jazz guitar legend Jerry Hahn (Rolling Stone magazine called him one of the top 3 jazz guitarists in the world). From there I traveled to Hollywood, CA where I attended G.I.T. at the Musicians Institute. I spent several years travelling the Pacific Northwest with different rock bands before settling down to a career in financial services and becoming a husband and father.
