Hello, my name is Leon. I have been playing guitar for 27 years, beginning at the age of 6. I have experience in live performances from the age of 9, where I began playing rhythm and lead guitar in my father's band. I started teaching in 2001 giving group and private lessons at my local Activity Center.

I have toured professionally with different bands, and have done various in studio recording sessions for both other artists and myself.

My musical background includes many genres as listed, and more.

Pop
Rock
Country

I really enjoy teaching and sharing my knowledge of something I am so passionate about. Students can expect to learn to play the music they love and enjoy, while also gaining important knowledge about their instrument.
