Teaching since:

Hello! I'm TJ. I've been playing guitar and writing songs for as long as I can remember. I also play piano, bass, ukulele, and sing. I perform my original music around the Philadelphia area and on tour in the Northeastern United States and Canada. I'm an expert at finger-style guitar playing in classical and folk styles as well as a range of picked styles from blues and bluegrass to jazz and funk or to rock and heavy metal. I've been teaching for a long time and really enjoy helping people learn to play and enjoy playing music as a lifelong journey.
