Start playing guitar today!

boy playing electric guitarIf you are new to guitar and looking for your first guitar lessons or you already play and you are looking to improve your technical ability or theory, you have come to the right place! I teach Electric and Acoustic guitar to Students of all Ages and Skill Levels in a variety of contemporary styles.

As my student, you will receive a completely customized lesson plan that is built around your personal interests, needs and goals. I will not simply open a pre-made book and start working through it with you, as that would be a waste of your time and money. 

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to learning guitar, no two students are the same and each individual requires special planning in order to make maximum progress.

Unlike most guitar instructors who only have been formally trained become guitar players, I have trained specifically to be a guitar instructor, coach, mentor, as well as a professional player. Through ongoing education and analysis of guitar pedagogy I continually look for ways to turn traditional teaching on its head to get you results faster than expected!  

Together we will focus on allowing you to enjoy playing the guitar while also transforming you into a well rounded musician. As my student you will learn the fundamentals of guitar technique, music theory, songwriting, and improvisation. You will unlock new parts of your creativity and be surprised by how easy it can be to play your favorite songs and create your own music in the style you enjoy.
