HI guys! I'm Ian, and I would love to play music with you. I've been playing guitar since I was 10 and began giving lessons at my local guitar shop when I was 15. I love to help people deepen their understanding of and physical ability with music. Teaching is an important part of my musical life, and I learn as much from it as any of my students do. We will get to work quickly, starting by identifying your goals and fashioning a practice routine that is both appropriately challenging and suited to your life. My strength as a teacher comes from thousands of hours of professional experience. My teaching style - excited, engaged, encouraging and patient. Choose me if you're interested in any of the following: popular music of the last 70 years (all of it!); classical music; jazz & American songbook; music theory; ear training; playing with other people; recording music; writing music; singing; and the list goes on. Please let me know if you have any questions!
In 2009 I graduated from Portland State University in Portland, OR with a bachelor's in classical guitar performance. In my 20s I toured all over North America with three bands; Hockey, STRFKR, and Mimicking Birds. For the past 7 years I have lived in New York City, where I worked as a guitar teacher, studio guitarist and TV & film composer. Since September 2019 I've lived in Stockholm, Sweden, where I teach my NYC students online and write music for Epidemic Sound and Pour Le Sport Recording Company.
