About Z D.

I understand that not all of us want to be rock stars, so I teach my students everything they need to achieve their specific goals in music.

If you take lessons with me, besides learning playing the guitar you can get a taste of composition, music theory, chord progressions, strumming patterns, improvisation, active listening, ear training, reading and notation, arranging, pedals, tones, and even guitar maintenance. We can can learn songs in the style of pop, rock, funk, folk, country, blues, jazz or classical. I also can prep students for college music major programs.

No matter if you are a beginner or want to start over your studies, I will help you to discover the musician inside yourself. The custom lessons are tailored for your needs and interest.
