“I believe it is a privilege to share my
encyclopedic knowledge of songs and guitar styles to any student
who trusts me with their education. I recognize that each
student learns differently and will be inspired by different
styles of music. I can teach them the proper theory and
techniques while guiding them on a path that will bring out
their best int heir talents. We will work on a course of study
together, created to suit the students abilities and above
all…have lots of fun.
What sets me apart from other instructors
is that I encourage students to “practice” correctly and guide
them trough techniques to use at home. They will not be left
unprepared. Results are seen quickly with proper practice.”
