I am an experienced guitar player & teacher from Australia. I have lived in California for over 3 years now and absolutely love it here. I have played the guitar 20+ years and I have played professionally and won the Bon Jovi Guitar Solo competition in 1995 performing on mainstream radio station 92.9FM winning a private lesson of a lifetime with Bon Jovi Guitarist Richie Sambora.
I have also worked for Guitar Center as a Certified Guitar & Accessories Expert. I have developed a fun and uniquely structured learning model based on my own unique experiences that strongly focusses on techniques used and made famous by some of the world’s greatest and well know rock & blues guitarists that you can eventually integrate into your own style, making you the best guitar player you can possibly be.
I believe that when you unlock and discover the amazing potential within you that you thought you never had, and the guitar did this for me, it changes everything. I will help you learn about the guitar, build a solid foundation based on good technique, provide many different positive ways to understand important concepts, develop your ears, measure and review your progress regularly and get you playing pieces of music from day one. I am very flexible in understanding that everyone progresses differently and I will help plan the best ways you can use your available time to improve your playing level.
