- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I really enjoy showing the guitar not only to beginners but to advanced students as well. There's always something new to learn and grow from! I most certainly want you guys to be excited about the music that you're playing. If we have a firm grasp of what you like, we're going to be able to get to technique, theory, rhythm, and practice techniques involved in a fun way.
Along the way, I'll be able to show you some great tips on recording your own music, playing with a band, equipment, tones, and other aspects to make your ability grow in every direction. I also have some success in song placement in television and movies and would love to give all my experiences over to you to further enhance your learning.
Look forward to hearing from you!

- Teaching since:
I am a professional guitar player, songwriter, recording artist and touring player.
I graduated from Musician's Institute in Hollywood with a music degree and have not looked back. Predominantly focusing on rock and metal, I've slowly over time moved into other facets, constantly trying to improve my craft.
I was lucky enough to have my rock band released a record in Europe, my metal band, Rayzing Sons, have record releases and 3 American/Canadian tours while signed to a label. We were lucky enough to be featured in and I wrote the music for three TV commercials.
Along the way I was the guitar player in the LA Laker band for a 13 piece funk band that played around LA and had residencies in Las Vegas. But enough about what I've done! LOL
I'm here to teach you the craft that I have spent years to find it. I strongly believe in great technique, but it also has to be connected to a strong sense of pocket and feel. I don't want you to play along with the music, I want you to be in it! I can certainly enhance your technique in many different styles.
I can certainly help you work up some great tone which includes amp choices effects and gear for your specific style, as well as guitars if need be. I'd really like to show you some basic guitar setups in and repair to save you a little money down the road.
I like to think of myself as an all-inclusive guitar player. One that not only plays it but also understands the business aspects of it, as well as maintenance.
There's a lot to learn and I can't wait to meet you
