My lessons are tailored directly to what the student loves about music. As a teacher, I feel that my biggest responsibility is to help a student fall in love with music. If I can do that, the practice, the skill building, all of that will take care of itself as they pick up their instrument and play! I have lots of experience playing live in different groups, and studied music in college, so I understand what it takes to play at a professional level as well. I write my own songs and arrangements with my band Buffalo Rose, so I can provide a wholistic and encompassing approach to the guitar, from playing for fun, to gigging, to songwriting and everything in between!
