I have been studying the guitar and bass for the last 30 years. While I studied music in college, I began to teach the guitar. After I completed my associates degree at Fullerton college in southern California, I went on to study and get my B.A. degree from Eugene Lang College, The New School for Social Research in New York City. I have always performed with music groups and ensembles - right now I play in flamenco duet, Two jazz groups and a blues band. I love to teach music and enjoy passing on the craft to those who enjoy music as well.
*** Lesson Details ***
When I first start with a student, I begin with building up their finger strength. Next I get the student involved with learning chords and scales. Then I get the student involved with learning songs, if the student has a certain musical artist they want to learn, the better. I am a very patient teacher especially if there is any learning disability. In a short time you will be playing the guitar or bass and will be able to entertain others with your new gift of music.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to have a working instrument

Jazz is the genre that I know best, then blues, classical guitar
