If you're going to hire a guitar teacher, your lessons should be something you look forward to every week. The majority of instructors use a one-size-fits-all approach, and as a result, their students can quickly become frustrated and lose interest. I've always found this unfortunate because playing the guitar can be such an incredibly enjoyable and rewarding experience.
With each one of my students, I take into account how much time they are willing to practice, what playing styles interest them, and what teaching approach works best. I then come up with a lesson plan that is specifically catered to their needs.
The only thing I love as much as writing and performing is sharing my passion with other people and seeing them gain confidence in their newfound abilities. I've been playing music for the past 20 years, and teaching professionally since 2010 to students of all ages and skill levels.
Specialties include (but are not limited to): pop, folk, rock, blues, jazz, fingerpicking, and improvisation on both acoustic and electric guitar.
