If performing is a rush, passing along technique and style is a gift.

It’s not what you know, it’s what you do with what you know.  In giving lessons, I get as much as the students. Nurturing natural talent – refining skill with discipline – and discovering a unique sound – are the thrills of musical mentorship.

I train on acoustic, electric and classical guitar. Lessons can be conducted in my home or on site. I provide instruction in the following styles:

  • Rock
  •  Pop
  •  Funk
  •  Blues
  •  Folk
  • Country
  • Classical (Classical technique and repertoire)
  • Basic Jazz

The motivation for playing and practicing and getting better is feeling connected to the music. I teach the essential disciplines, but also connect with the student to create a custom course of study that unlocks the student’s passion and potential.
