Teaching since:

I am currently Professor of Jazz Guitar at Clemson University and I teach privately at my house and at Carolina Prep Academy in Greenviile, SC (Grades 1 - 5). I perform with many bands in the Upstate and throughout the SC, NC, and Georgia areas.

I have been teaching for 20 years and have taught all levels of music. My specialty is beginners along with helping intermediate and advanced players grow. I can teach students from 5 years old to adults. I teach musicality, rhythm, ear training, music reading, playing by ear, songs, and many other aspects of music.

I am interested in music recording and have a recording studio at my teaching location for folks who are interested in the technology side of things.

Monty is a great guy and a very talented musician. I've been taking lessons for over 4 years. I have really enjoyed it and plan to continue. Monty is patient and encouraging and tailors lessons to your interests. High recommend to anyone.

Monty is great. I have been taking lesson with him for over 2 years. He not only teaches mechanics, but he throws in Music Theory as well. Helps to know why you use this scale, why this note is important or these pattern is used. You can’t go wrong with him.
