*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching all levels and styles of guitar playing and want to teach what you want to learn. I am patient and positive and do this mostly because I still love to do it. I prefer teaching using the William Leavitt Modern Method for Guitar, using that to lay the foundation to branch out to the music you want to learn.
Lessons are in a studio with drums, bass, piano, amps, recording equipment, woodwinds, brass, mandolin, violin, cello, viola, many guitars, PA, etc.
Students are expected to bring their guitar (and cord, picks, strap, pencil, lesson materials, good attitude etc.), and are expected to practice if their expectation is to become a better guitarist.
