Ages 5+

Teaching since:
April 1994

Many years of professional playing, across the country as well as abroad, combined with my knack for breaking down and explaining guitar technique, enables me to offer an effective, as well as fun method of learning the instrument.
Lessons are tailored to each student, with the priority being learning music YOU like, to keep you interested and ready to advance. You can learn to read music, but it's not mandatory (I encourage it, but you can still become a great player without it). If you just want to learn your favorite songs, or get started learning what it takes to shred on the guitar, we can do that.

I'm also experienced with studio and composition work (I composed and produced a bunch of instrumental rock and techno tracks for "Digital Juice", a big time company in Ocala, and was half of a production team that scored a 30 minute video for SeaDoo sport boats, through "Florida Film and Tape").

*** Specialties ***

Guitar · In studio

Jeff has been one of my biggest influences in my quest for guitar mastery. He has vast knowledge on all types of guitar techniques and is extremely effective at communicating them in a clear and concise way. Also, he can effectively teach music in a fun way that involves playing lead to chord progressions or vice-versa. He has always made guitar lessons fun and engaging, while at the same time challenging to students to make sure they get the most out of the session. I couldn't have asked for a better guitar teacher. Definitely take advantage of this opportunity to learn from him!
