I have been teaching students to play the guitar since 2005. I am very patient and tailor my lessons to the individual. I Teach the proper way to hold the guitar and finger technique. My specialty is teaching students to read music in a formal step by step method. Later, the student can branch out to individual interests. I have taught very young children, older adults, and students with disabilities. I have held performance recitals for students at places like churches and art galleries. This gives students a chance to become comfortable in front of an audience. I am a Classical guitarist but also enjoy rock and blues.

About Patricia R.

Hi future students. I'm excited to meet you and get you playing the guitar, since it is by far the coolest and most fun instrument. I started playing when I was 9 from private instructors in Massachusetts. I perform with classical guitar at wedding ceremonies, at church, and other functions. For fun I sometimes join an Irish session group in Denton. Parents, I used to teach in the public schools so I am fingerprinted in both CT and IL, and background checked. You are welcome to sit in on your child's lesson.
