I picked up a guitar when I was eight, and I never put it down. After earning my BA in Economics at Harvard, I followed my true passion and began playing music professionally. I'm also a Berklee Music College Alumnus, and I did learn a lot there. My guitar heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jerry Garcia, Eric Clapton, Jimi Paige, John Lee Hooker, Duane Allman, Dickey Betts. I love to blaze away on guitar solos inspired by the greats, but as well as listening to my favorite guitarists, I also listen to just about everything under the sun, and appreciate all types of music. I can help you learn just about anything.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm attentive in listening to what you want, finding where your strengths are, and working to show you things that you might not pick up on by yourself.

Parents can sit in on lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide an acoustic or electric guitar (with amplifier) for the lesson.

This song, "In The Middle," doesn't have a lot of flashy guitar, but is one of my favorites from my latest album "The Groove & The Thrive"
