I've been playing guitar for 20 years and teaching guitar for 10 of those. I cater my lesson plans to the needs of my students, allowing them to pick songs they love to listen to and teaching them how to play those songs with chords and TAB. I also like to balance some theory with song work in the lesson time. Above all else, these lessons should be fun!
