About this pro

In one way or another I have been in the music business my entire life. Playing for TV shows or in concerts, teaching, or a sideman for casuals, music has always been my life and passion. I have been playing since I was 11 years old and started playing professionally since I was 13. I have pre-made lesson plans that cover many styles and all levels of the guitar. I have a great upbeat disposition, am self-motivated, reliable, and love to go to work every day! Thank you for your time and consideration.

    I began lessons with Ricky several months ago and plan on continuing with him far into the future. His musical knowledge is immense (as is his laugh!), and he is truly passionate about teaching. I consider myself an advanced player and Ricky has helped elevate my playing several notches. He is professional, organized, enthusiastic, and determined to help you reach your musical goals. (and he can jam!)
