About this pro

I've been teaching guitar for over 30 years.  Electric, acoustic,... all are fair game.  Making it fun, while developing skills and technique is where I focus.  Nothing succeeds like success so we go from strength to strength.  This applies to all ages, children through adults.  Improvisation is always fun and inspiring so we learn music theory, applying it along the way.  It's also interesting to introduce other styles like world music while still working on more expected styles like blues, classic rock, and jazz.  My students range from amateurs, playing for enjoyment to professionals who have gone on to do great things.

Nothing beats the satisfaction of watching a student jump to the next level and conquer new territory.

    I have just started taking lessons with Bruce. I have found him to be accessible and responsive. He is also a kind and supportive teacher. His approach is pretty organic in that he doesn’t come with a set lesson plan but instead has been tailoring the lessons to my interests and abilities. I find it really easy to communicate with him, and he’s obviously a very skilled musician.

    Bruce is a very conscientious and creative instructor that will connect what’s you’re interested in personally (musically) to what he knows that will give you the best foundation (from his vast experience) in music/guitar while making in fun and entertaining. He is one of the best musicians/instructor that I know...

    Working with Bruce over the last few months he was very patient. I had a really hard time with other teachers, I really learned how to play guitar because of Bruce was going over everything in detail.
