I have studied guitar thoroughly for the past 5 years. Its wonders have brought me immense joy and serenity. I want each and every student to discover the magic that music creates in our lives and the lives of others around us. Along with the disciplinary aspects of practice, learning an instrument such as the guitar can open imaginary doors like no other instrument. The musical possibilities are endless.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me can be either good or great. I am pretty laid back, but keep a strict tone at times. I like to form great working relationships, as well as lasting friendships with my students. I like to get to know who they are and what they love. It helps me discover how and what to teach them. People are different and like different things, so it is part of my job to ensure that they are enjoying what they are learning. I don't spoil them with pop songs though. I use many traditional, classically involved studies and techniques, as well as all the knowledge that I have obtained from college curriculum. Lessons will include: aural skills, theory, history, and maybe even some jokes here and there.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, guitars, marimba, amps.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar, books, amps, tuners, metronomes and whatever else they might need for guitar. I would expect them to provide at least a guitar for themselves. It would be nice for them to have the above I listed but all they really need is a way to practice.

*** Specialties ***
I mainly play classical guitar and flamenco. I do dabble in other styles just to keep it challenging.
