My passion for music has led me clear across the country, from Boston to the San Francisco Bay Area. I have played guitar for 17 years, in various bands of many different genres, and have attended music schools on both coasts to fortify my musical knowledge. I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston and then graduated from Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park. My specialties are in rock and metal guitar, and also in composition and music theory.
*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is centered around the individual learning styles of the student, rather than the imposition of an impersonal broad curriculum. You may find me to be laid back, but I expect my students to be dedicated and to practice the material so that we can progress together. I find that beginners especially will be more inclined to stick with their instrument when they are playing music that they like, and will also be more inclined to explore some more traditional sources like written music, etudes, jazz stuff, etc. Therefore I always begin by asking what YOU want to learn and what YOU would like to play, and then build a curriculum around that.
*** Studio Equipment ***
*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring chord stamps, a laptop to print out music, and my guitar. I expect that the student will provide a notebook, music/tab paper, songs they wish to learn, their instrument, and a willingness to practice!
*** Specialties ***
I have studied jazz guitar and some classical but my specialties are rock and metal guitar, as well as songwriting, composition, and music theory. I can teach beginner drums and up through intermediate bass guitar.
