Guitar, Bass Guitar, Ukulele, Music Theory

I've been teaching guitar for the last eight years to students of wide ranging skill levels who seek to gain an introductory understanding, or deepen their current understanding of the guitar and basic music theory. I prefer to let the personal goals of the student decide the direction of lessons, many of my students seek to learn their favorite contemporary guitar songs. Using these popular songs as jumping off points, I mix in technique and theory exercises to give students a concrete and practical understanding of the material and of the instrument of their choice. I have experience teaching various styles of acoustic and electric guitar, bass and ukulele to students as young as six. From classical pieces to jazz, and from heavy metal to the softest folk tune, I can accompany you and guide you through your musical journey.
