Teaching since:
2012

I am a guitarist from the Newark, NJ area. I have been playing the guitar for more than ten years. I have completed my classical guitar studies at New Jersey City University with a BA in Music Education. Not only do I teach classical, but I also teach acoustic and electric, as well as music theory. I incorporate theory in my lessons to improve the musicianship of my students. I am willing to be flexible with my schedule to fit the students' needs.
