Teaching since:

I am a professional guitarist and songwriter for one of the most renowned San Diego live bands. I have been teaching lessons for the last seven years and have performed professionally for 12. I currently have around 30 students at a local music school and play live several times a week.

Guitar students can expect to improve from week to week, with an ever growing understanding and appreciation for music. My teaching experience allows me to be aware of how students improve their playing with an emphasis on consistent progression and smart milestones that give students a feeling of accomplishment that minimizes frustration.

I tailor my lessons to the students skill level/interests. If you just want to have some fun learning to play chords, THAT’S OK! If you want to delve deeper into diatonic harmony, half diminished chords, and modal interchange, then let’s get down on it!

Some of the styles I regularly teach: Rock, Blues, Indie, Folk Alternative, Jazz, Raggae, R&B, Country

I teach lessons to all ages.

If any of this sounds interesting to you, don’t be shy! Send me a message, because I can’t wait to help you become a better musician!

Jeff is a colleague of mine and we’ve worked closely together both in a teaching setting and performance setting. Not only is he a killer performer and player, he’s also a really great teacher. He knows his stuff, is great with kids and adults and really inspires his students. I’ve watched countless students flourish with him as a teacher. Couldn’t recommend him more!

Jeff masters the balance of professional knowledge and a great, laid back demeanor. He delivers information in a way I can understand and inspires me to push myself to be the best musician I can be. I highly recommend working with him, you will make tremendous progress if you follow his practice recommendations.
