Being a Berklee College of Music Graduate with a Masters in Music
Education from Boston University, I have been playing for almost 30
years and teaching private lessons for 15+, I am a Professional
Instructor that has the ability and resources to teach several styles
ranging from Rock to Classical to Jazz to Country to Metal. In other
words, anything you want to learn I can teach you or your child using the songs and exercises necessary to help you become a real musician.

*** Lesson Details ***
The lessons are tailored to you and your wants as a musician. Whether
you have an electric, acoustic, or classical guitar, along with various method books, I have the music,
print outs, and instructional material to make sure you progress as you

The lessons will help you learn to play guitar through chord diagrams,
theory, charts, examples, and exercises, as well as anything you hear on
the radio.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a lot of guitars, amps, pedals, woodwind instruments, keyboards, and recording equipment. Instruments everywhere!

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students should have their own instrument and method book. Other that that, I provide all other handouts and supplemental material and handouts.

*** Specialties ***
I work the most in rock, bluegrass, country, contemporary, and jazz styles.
