Are you interested in learning to play the music you love, using techniques that are healthier for your hands? My guitar lessons promote efficient, ergonomically sound, time-tested playing techniques.
I'm a Certified Music Educator with over 25 years of experience. I instruct beginners as well as experienced players who want to improve their knowledge of music theory, or even completely restructure and rebuild their overall guitar playing technique.
I offer instruction for acoustic guitar as well as electric guitar (steel and/or nylon string) and provide instruction in formal classical guitar, as well as popular music styles such as: rock, pop, blues, jazz, funk, soul, and more.
Established in 2001.
I earned a Bachelor of Music Education with Magna Cum Laude Honors in 1996, having studied classical guitar, jazz guitar, improvisation, music theory, arranging, psychology, piano, violin, recording, and much more. I have over 25 years of teaching experience, and well over 30 years of playing experience. I have performed solo, in rock bands, blues and jazz combos, duos, trios, and classical guitar ensembles.
My current students include young and older adults, children, and retirement age students.
I strive to provide a friendly, comfortable learning environment students can thrive in. I won't pressure you to play recitals in order to increase my studio size, but I will greatly encourage you to play an active role in customizing your own individual curriculum. As soon as you have the skills, you should be learning to play the music you love.
Regardless of what your musical goals are, I would love to help you learn the skills you need to reach them. Thank you so much for your time.
