Learn guitar fast from an expert teacher with 30+ years experience
Hi! Music is my passion. I have released several albums of original music, toured independently to support the releases, and have owned and operated a successful music school for almost 2 decades. I can teach you just about anything you want to learn on guitar including basic music theory, rhythm, song structure and charts, tab, treble clef, technique, scales, chords fingerpicking, flat-picking and so much more. We will go at your pace while I keep it fun and challenging. I am also a professional drummer and will jam with you on songs you learn as soon as you you are ready! I'm ready to rock, lets do this!

Sandi's a great drum teacher and is specifically great at connecting young burgeoning musicians and having them learn to play well together. This was especially important for me in helping me be comfortable playing in band settings which was and is the most important aspect of being a musician for me.
