I'm a university graduate in classical guitar performance and have a gift for helping students discover their inner guitarist. I have an extensive musical background as a professional performer, instructor, composer, and recording artist. I've published several guitar methods and composed countless guitar technique studies designed to develop specific skills. I've created and taught guitar and music theory courses for colleges, music academies, and conservatories for over 25 years. I teach all ability levels.

Reliable & Professional

Edward has a comprehensive understanding of music theory and guitar technique. He is readily able to explain his lessons in terms even the most elementary student can understand. He's very approachable and easy to talk to. Most importantly, he is exceptionally patient! Edward has always been reliable and prepared to teach. I have learned a lot from him over the past year and continue to make steady progress in developing my own skills in reading music and playing guitar.
