Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My students can expect to have their lessons with me structured to fit their own unique and personal goals no matter what skill level they pursue or have already attained. I would encourage my students to find and bring sheet music and/or tablature for songs they wish to learn. Students are also encouraged to have blank music and/or tab paper for their lessons. For all lessons whether online or in home, students can expect me to bring a small amp, extra 1/4 in and 1/8 in cables, extra guitar picks, various guitar method books, a laptop computer, tuner & metronome, as well as other supplies needed. For in home lessons, I will do the best that I can to come to the student's home at least 5-10 min early to allow time to set up gear needed for lessons. As a final note, if there is a time and/or day that you would like to schedule a lesson with me that you do not see listed as part of my availability or if you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to help in any way that I can.
