I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now and I've played in just about every type of band. After playing in a metal band for about 5 years I switched over to a classic rock group for a couple years. In both of those groups I was lead guitar/lead vocals. Now for the last few years I've been playing lead guitar in a country/rock band called Faith Bardill for a vocalist who has won several awards including best female country artist and best teen artist. I enjoy playing any style of music and I'm very excited to help new students realize their potential. I'm prepared to teach from home in a comfortable room I've dedicated to teaching and studio work. I'm also happy to go to the student for their convenience or give lessons online. My personal passion is to make music my life. I want to give lessons, play shows and record my way through the years. I have enormous enthusiasm when it comes to music and I bring that to the lessons I give.Show More

Great lesson, loads to learn!!!
I tried learning guitar a number of years ago. Garrett was great getting me started back into guitar. He quickly got me going with some simple chords and techniques. He has a strong understanding of guitar and makes it easy to understand. + he can play anything!Show More
What can I say about Garrett. I have never met a better guitarist in my 20 years of playing. Taking lessons with him was one of the best decisions I ever made. I would pay him double. No matter the guitar style, Garrett seems to have played it for years and has real insight on any of the different styles from Blues, to Country, to Rock, to Classic Rock, to Metal. He helped me not just learn riffs or songs but scales and has bug in teaching me more advanced music theory as well. He truly is the perfect mix of good person and amazing guitarist. Don’t miss the chance to learn from one of the best no matter your skill level!Show More
Any time I've needed guitar help with songwriting, Garrett has always come in with something and we've come up with some pretty good songs. I'd recommend him to anyone!

I can play any number of styles from blues and country to hard rock and heavy metal I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now. I know music theory very well and I'm great with making the theory part fun to learn while teaching to play a style that the student prefers. I'm an easy going guy and really patient. I make the promise to every student that I will give them every bit of effort and support I can to propel them in their music career. I'm one of those people who gets along with everybody and I like to make my lessons fun for each student.
