I have performed professionally on stage and in the studio for over 20 years. I studied music with a double major in guitar and bass guitar. I also play flute and keyboards. I began my musical training at 10 years old learning how to play guitar. I have a deep love for music and began to teach what I know to others and found that teaching music is very rewarding. I like to help others discover the joy that comes from learning and playing a musical instrument.
I am great with young students just starting out and make sure that learning their instrument is a fun experience. With teenagers and adults, I not only teach guitar methods, but also the basic principles required to "jam" with other musicians. I also work with bands and ensembles teaching basic performance techniques required to perform live.
I can teach folk, rock, country, blues and jazz methods. I also teach my students how music is constructed so the student can understand how a chord is built or a guitar lead is developed. I teach basic music theory, songwriting and composing, which is very important for the serious guitar student.
