Personal Statement

I believe guitar is an instrument to be loved. I encourage students to love music and their guitar. I can teach a student to play just about any song from any musician / band. I am a beginner specialist but teach intermediate as well. I teach chord structure as well as basic lead and fingerpicking. I also teach alternate / open tunings. I work well with young children as well as adults. Ear training is also emphasized.
