I love making each lesson tailored to the individual goals of my students. Encouraging and empowering YOUR musical goals!
I have played professionally (thousands of gigs) and grew up playing by ear, but I am also a graduate of Berklee College of Music, Boston and have a BA in Music Education grades K-12 and have taught as a certified music educator for 33 years.
I teach acoustic and electric guitar, electric bass, ukulele, music theory, music business, and so me! I'd love to help you on your musical journey...all best! Gil

I've learned a lot on the guitar because of Gil. From barre chords to blues licks to simple chord strumming. Gil never seizes to show that repetition is key for guitar beginners.
