Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
All of my students get a solid foundation of technique, note reading theory and hands on applications of all of these subject. They can also expect for me to tailor each individual lesson to their needs. For instance if a student likes jazz we can focus on that or if they like rock or R&B the focus will be on that particular style. Also we can't forget that the lessons must be fun and exciting for the student for the students to progress at a steady pace.

I am a professional teacher/performer with over 20 year’s experience. I specialize in jazz guitar but have vast teaching and performing experience in all styles of popular music such as rock, blues, soul, r&b etc....
I am a composer/band leader and I also have many side man credits with some world renowned musicians on my resume. My CD "hypnotic" made the semi final round for 09-10 Grammys for best jazz instrumental CD. I also have 2CD's on the steeplechase label.
I believe that these experiences make me a teacher that can communicate with my students through my hands on knowledge and understanding of all aspects of music. Oh.... almost forgot.... I love teaching just as much as I love playing, because it gives me a chance to effect peoples peoples lives in a positive way.
