Personal Statement

The ultimate goal of my lessons is to create a well-rounded musician who is both a solid rhythm player and a confident improviser. I wish for my students to be considerate and thinking musicians with a profound understanding of the fretboard and of the fundamentals of music. I use songs as vehicles to impart specific musical concepts, as well as for the joy of playing them.
