Guitar is one of the best instruments to write music with and accompany yourself or others. I will teach the basics of the instrument so you have a good foundation to build on. After this is established we can focus on the style you are interested in and learn songs in that style. I have been a songwriter for many years and will gladly help you to start composing your own songs on the guitar. Guitar can seem intimidating I will help you break it down to be able to play your favorite songs.

About Ian C.

Hello, I am a musician with over 20 years of experience touring here in the states as well as internationally. I graduated Ithaca college with a BA in music performance. I have lived, performed, and taught music in Nashville TN for the last 15 years. I love to pass on my knowledge of music with my students. one of my favorite moments is seeing the excitement in my students when they achieve a new skill it is such a reward to see the joy music is bringing to them. I like to start off with the basics giving a solid foundation for my students to grow from. My goal is to teach my students good technique then focus more on what interests them in music. I believe music should be fun and rewarding, it takes hard work and dedication but it is well worth it. Lets get you playing music!!
