Personal Statement

What I would like to offer is a natural relationship to music and to your instrument ... I can make you work on tapping or special licks or jazz progressions if you wish, but I hope to make you realize something broader than frets and notes. Listen and learn to create a mood naturally with a few notes and chords for instance ... Guitar playing seen as similar to speech or dancing ... I hope to make my students better players than I am !
