Lesson Details

Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My methods vary from student to student. I focus primarily on ear training, applications of chord construction to learning solo's, songs, and chords, and reading guitar tablature when a student is lost. I believe guitar is an especially creative instrument and do NOT focus on reading sheet music as a part of the student's learning experience. An emphasis is also placed on performance as well as proper technique to avoid injuries. Listening to music is an extra-curricular activity that should be done every day with a special emphasis on hearing what the 'greats' do with a magnificent piece of wood in their hands.

Music in Lexington Park, Maryland for 3 years and currently teach and manage at the School of Rock in Arnold. I earned an Associates Degree in Music at Anne Arundel Community College and a Minor in Music at St. Mary's College of Maryland. I currently perform as an acoustic trio in the DMV area with some very talented musicians.

Greg is intimately connected with the guitar. There is no other type of teacher I can recommend than one who is so passionate about music, it's development, and it's exploration. I highly recommend this teacher.

Greg is both knowledgeable and extremely patient. He taught me the fundamentals of guitar, and his lessons have stuck with me more than any others I’ve had. I have him to thank for getting me started, and I continue to improve with what he taught me in mind! If you’re looking for a teacher who will teach you while breaking down the technique, he’s definitely your guy!

I've been slowly learning guitar from Greg for the past two years. He really has allowed me to develop my own style of playing, but he is always there to step in if I am on the track to developing a bad technique. He really can play anything. I've seen him play fingerpicking tunes, rip some bluegrass, funk electric guitar, you name it. It's because of him I can now take to the stage with my guitar and not be too scared to play. Eager to learn more!
