Greetings! I'm currently offering lessons on guitar, songwriting, music theory, music production and arranging, as well as improvisation.

I'm a Grammy and Gold-record winning musician, with 40+ years experience. I was a member of Wilco for seven years. I've also recorded and toured with Theaster Gates, Liz Phair, Andrew Bird, Beth Orton, Iron and Wine, and many others. I've performed numerous times on Leno, Conan, Letterman, and more. I attended Berklee College of Music and have a Bachelor's degree in jazz performance from Columbia College. And I've performed in musicals in both New York and Chicago and read music very well.

I have over 30 years experience as a private teacher. I take each lesson seriously and will be sure to pack in as much material and playing time into the lesson as we can. Lessons are tailored to each student's particular interests and process. We'll work on specific songs, techniques and musical ideas, while also looking at broader musical contexts and traditions.

Please note, to participate in my lesson program, you must have at least two years of playing experience, be able to to play four songs from memory, and be able to comfortably play at least twelve chords, including barre chords.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or ideas. I'm a friendly teacher and flexible in my teaching arrangements!
