Lesson Details

Blues Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner
I grew up in Memphis, TN where I originally picked up traditional blues guitar, from there I moved to Austin, TX (the live music capital of the world) where I would play outside restaurants for donations to charity. For high school I attended The Putney School in southern VT, this is where I began playing other instruments and learning jazz guitar. I currently attend LA College of Music for Music Production and Recording. If interested I'd love to offer lessons in Music Production and Recording as well.

I have been playing guitar for 12 years and teaching private lessons for about 2 years now. When it comes to guitar lessons the styles I focus on are rock, blues, jazz, folk, metal, funk, and fusion. My personal favorite genres are funk and fusion.

I have an interesting array of guitars and when needed or interested, I'd love to bring a spare for the client to use or experiment with. This includes an original Fender "Strat", a rare Ibanez "Baritone" guitar, a vintage 69' Harmony Rebel, an Ibanez acoustic, a red Washburn electric, and an electric Fender bass. I also have two compact combo amps to bring if needed. One is a Blackstar and the other is a Fender. On a side note many guitarists love to play around with pedals and effects. If this sort of thing is up your alley I'll have no problem in doing so.

I am currently the Music Teacher at Arts In Action Charter School in East LA. Over there I teach guitar, piano, and production to the elementary and middle school students.

One thing I love is watching a student try to achieve something that's been setting them back for a while and then finally seeing the moment they realize they've got it! Self realization is a huge part of learning the language of music.
