Welcome! Bienvenidos!
I hope to be of great guidance in your musical journey.
I am fortunate to have learned from some highly remarkable musicians, and enjoy sharing my knowledge with those seeking to learn and further their understanding and skill.
I have been playing guitar for over a dozen years, and have almost a decade of private teaching experience with students of all ages and skill levels. Whether you're a complete beginner or have been playing for a while and want to get to the next level of understanding and performance, I can help. I play everything from classical to pop, blues, classic rock, and metal.
I have received several awards for teaching as well as for performing both solo and with different groups/ensembles.

Great teacher and kind with kids. My daughter loved her guitar lessons. Too bad we are going to be out of town for a while. Thanks for your time

I've been taking lessons through Skype for about 3 months. Lucas is very talented and patient. We have fun doing all the different techniques. I look forward to taking more lessons and learning more.
