I have been teaching professionally for the last 10 years. I break down even the most complicated topics into small pieces that are easy to learn and understand. I have a structured approach with proven results and I treat each student individually and assess their goals to help guide the structure of the lesson. I have a diverse background in many styles of music and I can help every student with what they want to achieve.

I have been teaching guitar professionally for 10 years and playing for 17 years. I began teaching professionally after graduating Hollywood's Guitar Institute of Technology program with an Associates in Music Performance. I specialize in Metal, Jazz, Classical, Blues and Rock.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a good balance of disciplined yet easy going. I use a few different methods and books in combination with my own ideas to give a student a well rounded musical education. Students can expect to learn as much as they want to from me. I start with basic open chords and notes on the neck, and progressively get to more difficult scales, arpeggios, and music reading. The goal is to make my students as well rounded as possible and to be able to handle any musical situation they encounter.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home Studio Built In (side den): computer, amp, microphones, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my own amp, guitar and music stand. Students should have their own instrument to learn on.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in metal and with advanced soloing techniques.
