“My goal as teacher is to help students discover and develop their love for music. What I am looking for in my students is enthusiasm and an interest in learning guitar and its unique and extremely diverse repertory. My hopes are that I can teach my student something that will stay with them through out their lifetimes and pass on their love for music to future generations. What is most important of all is that my students have fun learning music and the guitar!”
