Teaching since:

I am hip to all directions and interests in regards to your musical desires. There are of course core concepts in music and playing the guitar that must be internalized in order to progress as a musician but there are many ways to approach these ideas and concepts. Every person has their own unique talents and attitude that will effect how the learn. Improvement will always require work but the act of playing music at any level of ability should be fun and enjoyable. Whatever style of music speaks to you, and whatever ability on the guitar you are after I can provide you with proper direction to help you achieve your goals.

Max is a great guitar player and a good teacher. He teaches not only the techniques but also the music theories behind them. With his instructions, I learned how to analyze a song before learning to play it, which is very helpful.
