It was here that Max also began to refine his jazz playing.

Max is a great teacher. He knows many different styles of playing (classical, rock, flamenco), music theory and focuses on technique as well. Working with Max will allow you to reach your goals on the guitar whether you are playing an electric, acoustic, classical or even ukulele!
