What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The first step is familiarization with the instrument. I give a brief overview of it's parts and their functions, how to hold it properly, hand placement, then strum technique. Next, we're onto a a few major chords and transitions. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

25+ years experience

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Fees vary, depending on duration of lesson, number of students, and travel expenses when applicable.

How did you get started teaching?

I'd never really considered giving lessons until I taught a couple of friends many years ago. I'd only been playing a couple years at that time, and being self taught, I didn't think I was even qualified to give instruction. However, I gave it a shot, and while teaching my friends guitar, I learned a lot about teaching. They learned quickly, and credited my teaching style for their success. Eventually, I began giving lessons, and developing an efficient & effective teaching method. Over the years, I've honed my skills as a musician, as well as teacher. I consider music a gift from Above, and it's a great feeling when I can share what I know, to pass the  magic on.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Seek out an instructor who will teach you how to play what you want to play, who understands the style & sound you're going for, and has the musical vocabulary to know how to get you there in good time, and leaves you with the tools to progress & improve.* Find a teacher that loves music as much as you love music. *
