*** Lesson Details ***
I have a patient, confidence-building and enthusiasm-generating approach to teaching. I strive to provide a positive, inspiring and comfortable environment where students can learn in a way that is best suited to their individual personalities, playing level and pace. As we go along, we develop strategies for attainable goals with guidance for quality and streamlined practice-sessions for maximum results with minimum effort, which makes learning easier and faster. We also work from a list of the student's favorite songs in any style or genre, based on the student's interest, while exploring others in order to enhance skill and inspire creativity.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music lessons are currently held in student's homes in the areas described as well as locations where amplifiers are provided.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Wherever needed, practice amplifiers can be brought to each lesson for the electric guitar, bass, vocals & electronic keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
We can work with any style or genre, based on the student's interest, while exploring others in order to enhance skill and inspire creativity.

(Specializing in the music of Jimi Hendrix & Led Zeppelin)
