My focus is on playing by ear; as a seasoned session and touring musician with over 10 years of experience, the value of learning songs/techniques by ear is invaluable.

I take a holistic approach focused on your needs and interests, and am happy to focus on any style or approach be it songs, techniques, theory, or writing skills.

We can discuss your goals and make sure we cover them in our lessons!

I've played for artists such as Halsey, Kitten, and Meg Myers. I studied music in England at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) and Trinity College of Music in London.

About Maxwell R.

I'm a session and touring guitarist with over ten years of experience. I've established myself as a sought after multi-instrumentalist, performing and recording with artists such as Halsey, Kitten, EERA, Psychic Love, Katie Burden, Veronica Bianqui, and Meg Myers.

Proficient in guitar, piano, bass, and percussion, I graduated from the prestigious Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) in England and studied composition at London’s Trinity College of Music with composers Soosan Lolavar, Deirdre Gribbin, and Dominic Murcott.

Being a proficient guitarist (or musician) these days is equal parts learning the basics and learning to play by ear. I focus on playing by ear, and while notation/traditional approaches will be covered the most important skill in this day and age is learning to play quickly by ear and intuition. As an experienced live guitarist I can attest to this and am always thankful to my teacher for focusing on that when I took lessons in my younger days.

We can discuss your individual goals and develop lesson plans to suit your needs!
