- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate
Experienced guitar instructor of over 10 years, offering highly-personalized lessons built around the musical preferences, needs and goals of my students. I teach students of all ages in a warm, welcoming, LGBTQIA+ friendly environment.
For beginner students the focus will be primarily on getting you able to play songs from artists you love quickly and enjoyably, with a focus on developing good rhythm, technique, guitar care and a solid foundation of chords that can be used in innumerable songs. Theory will be given in small, easily-digestible pieces, and always within the context of actual musical examples. If you're interested in learning to sing while playing, I'll also help you find ways to incorporate it early on so that it becomes more natural as you progress.
For students with some experience the direction of our lessons will be largely determined by your personal needs and goals, but subjects we might cover include songwriting, finger-picking, expanding chord vocabulary, scales/modes, improvisation, slide guitar, alternate tunings, advice and direction on playing live and any number of other things that come up over a lifetime of learning the guitar.

I am a professional guitarist, singer, and songwriter, with 10 years of experience helping budding guitarists reach their musical goals and grow as musicians. I have never found anything more fulfilling than watching my students learn to love and take ownership of music, and discovering the individual needs and strengths of each of my students is one of the greatest joys in my life.
