Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
In my 20 year career I have taught hundreds of students ranging from 7 years old to retirees. I take a very tailored approach for each student and help them to realize their potential. I was once where you are now. I wanted to learn but had no clear direction. Throughout the years I learned to pick-up some great techniques from some of the best players. While in college I learned to refine my craft by playing and collaborating with other musicians. Unlike other instructors, I teach through experience. I live and breathe music - and you can too!

Teaching since:

I am a dedicated father and worker. I have been studying music for over 20 years and have been teaching children since 2002. I've worked as a classroom music teacher and as a private lessons teacher at 3 different schools. I have vast experience in teaching guitar (Electric, Acoustic, Classical) and have taught recorder, piano, mandolin, & recording arts. Because I am a CEO of a local non-profit, I have also been a guest lecturer at Cal Poly Pomona for having music as a "duel career." I have my own classical chamber ensemble, am the choir director at my church, released 3 albums in the past, performed at the Whiskey and other venues on the sunset strip in Hollywood, and helped hundreds of students learn their musical craft. From Bach to Metallica, I've taught it all. Personally I love playing all kinds of music but currently my performance has been focused on classical. If you want a firm foundation grounded in years of experience, you've found the perfect teacher!
