Smile and have fun with it !

I love teaching guitar. And each student is unique.

My approach is to gear my teaching methods to the individual learning style of the student.

You need someone who responds to you and interacts with you as a unique learner. This makes learning fun and effective for you.

Teaching since:

Guitar haa been a love of mine since I was 14, when I first saw someone entertaining people at a party.

I began lessons for myself, at the age of 16. First I learned the basics and rock style music, and then I played and sang in some local Baltimore garage bands and in talent shows.

I went on to major in music in college, at Towson State University, with classical guitar as my concentration.

I began playing out professionally in my 20's, includings bars and restaurants like the Westminster Inn and at Fells Point, festivals like the Owings Mills Festival, weddings and parties.

I love teaching guitar and seeing the student's eyes light up, when things click together to get that favorite riff or favorite song right !

I have 25 + years of teaching experience.
I have taught over 100 students, including teens, adults, pre-teens, and special needs adults and children.
