I am an expert in the field of guitar technique. I have extensive knowledge of how to teach any level of a guitar player to play with good technique, and to extend the lifetime of their musical career drastically.

I am able to provide in-depth analysis of posture, positioning, and overall health to the student. I also am an expert is many musical styles. I am able to extract the key components of the techniques that are used to play a certain style​ and teach them to any level of student in an easy to understand manner.
