Personal Statement

I've taught 10 year old schoolkids to 60 year old Teamsters who wanted to play the blues. I accept students of all levels but I seem to work very well with beginners-intermediate because I'm very paitient and can get right to the elements they need to know to start playing. You definetely get out of it what you put into it and all I ask is that students are serious when they study with me. If you listen to me and put in the work, you will definitely see results. Thank You.
