LEARN WHAT YOU WANT TO LEARN ON GUITARUnlike many guitar teachers who teach in an abstract way that is not relevant to the student's interests and place a lot of emphasis scales, theory and undesirable songs, my primary goal is to ensure you are learning music that you like, care about and that inspires you from lesson one. I want your lessons to be enjoyable, effective and challenging, where you leave each lesson with practical knowledge and skills that you can apply directly to your playing. Never-ever guitar students will usually leave their first lesson being able to play a few basic chords and a basic song. And I will help experienced guitar students fill in the gaps in their playing and knowledge and make sure they haven't picked up any bad habits.
I teach most styles of guitar: rock, folk, modern, pop, country, blues, heavy, R&B, ethnic/world, bluegrass, jazz, etc. taught in a way that will get you immediately making music you enjoy and seeing real improvement, all while complimented with practical music theory skills relevant to what you are learning.
I work with you to cover the most relevant, useful aspects of playing guitar while creating a customized musical path that is geared towards your interests, desires and goals. I want you to enjoy yourself and your unique music journey and to be inspired and fulfilled. I don't cover aspects of guitar that you are not interested or will not be useful to your goals and interests. I cultivate self-sufficiency. So, if they desire, you can increasingly play and learn on your own.
