I am an experienced professional with a background in music performance, education, composition, theory and arranging. *** Lesson Details *** Few musicians or music students have identical goals, musical interests or physical size. So, It is NECESSARY to customize the course of study to meet student requirements. There are common issues for any serious pursuit of learning involving the guitar; right and left hand technique, fingerboard knowledge, chord knowledge, reading and interpretation.

I try to maintain a healthy balance between the focus on performance and technical issues. *** Studio Equipment *** 16 Channel Mixer for Recording and Playback 16 Channel Audio Interface for Recording and Playback
