Personal Statement

I called my business Navigator Music because I believe that my task is to guide a guitar player to where they want to be as a musician. I show a player what they want to know, and also what they need to know, to reach their goals. My curriculum is totally specific to the individual student, and their satisfaction is paramount. I teach serious students of the guitar, so I restrict my lessons to the age of forteen years minimum. Many of my students are professional players and teachers.
