- Teaches students:
- Ages 6+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
For the last thirty years, from the day that I got my first electric as a teenager, to my work today as an acoustic guitarist for the band, Timberwood, and currently as a teacher of more than forty students a week, my life has been devoted to the guitar.
I'm an experienced veteran of the metal and hard rock scene of the 80's and 90's in eastern Virginia. As I grew older, I took formal lessons focusing on classical guitar, while growing to love the blues. The year that I turned 34, I quit my corporate job, took a leap of faith, helped to build and brand a new music school in Chesapeake, Virginia, working there as a full-time music school manager and guitar instructor.
I now teach an incredibly diverse group of students of every age, background and experience level in my home studio here in the fast-growing World Golf Village area of Saint Augustine, Florida and at the Jacksonville School of Music in Jacksonville, Florida.
My teaching philosophy is simple - teach how to play the guitar, not just how to play the songs. I pride myself on being a positive and patient teacher, dedicated to his craft and to each student.
At the Jacksonville School of Music, I teach a diverse group of over forty students every week, each lesson personalized to meet the needs of every individual.
As a full-time guitar instructor at DnD Music, I taught over forty students every week, focusing on style, technique and note reading.
As Greg's bandmate, I can attest to his patience, professionalism, creativity and his dedication to the guitar.
