Currently working on my associates in music composition at Black Hawk College. I am in 2 local bands, Deus ex Machina, and jazz quartet. I also currently work as a session guitar and vocal professional, when I'm not teaching that is. I began teaching private lessons back in 2011 as a way for me to apply the theory I already knew to a more demanding job than what I had at the time, and naturally it led me here. So a bit about my playing background, I have been playing guitar, and reading music for 14 years. I began composing original pieces in the latter part of those years. Now I am just looking for a way to reach a larger target audience and marketing base. Hope to hear from everyone who is interested in learning!
*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will consist of a 5-10 minute warm up before every practice where I will show you a mix of picking, fretting, and hand stretching exercises to improve your over all playing experience. I run a control your own lesson environment, If you want to learn to be the next great guitar legend, I can teach you the skills you will need. Perhaps you just want to learn to play some of your favorite tunes though, I am more than capable of doing that as well, or even a nice mix of both. From day one you will walk away feeling like you have learned something, and being able to make sense of it, and use of it without fail.
