My name is Erik, and I offer a unique service in the music industry- guitar lessons with an option of music theory. Being that I'm both a Rock artist in a band and a Classical composition major in college, I find both of these subjects to be very rewarding to aspiring musicians.
I am a devoted teacher whose been doing this work for quite a few years. I'm simply here to unlock your vast, hidden, musical talent! Using my insight into the music industry, I can even help you go further and prepare for a job such as: Playing in a band, writing songs, recording, etc.
