I have been teaching for 4 years all different musical genres! From learning Rock tunes, to having a student accepted into college for music performance in classical guitar!

Lessons with Derick focus on fundamental musicianship skills as a way to foster productive musical experiences.

I have a personal focus in Classical Guitar, and because of that, can teach most other styles of guitar and ukelele.

Teaching is a passion of mine. I wish to share what i know about music with others, and provide broad and new experiences for as many people as i can reach. As well, providing expertise in refining skills and creating sharper guitar players.

    Derick is awesome! Super patient and great demeanor with kids. He is teaching my 9 year old and 4 year old guitar and they both look forward to their lesson each week.

    Derick has a strong sense of musicianship. He gives his students the tools they may need in order to prepare for a musical future. He will go above and beyond to help you with whatever you are struggling with on the guitar. He motivates his students by teaching them what they want to learn, or what they need in order to succeed. Derick creates an environment where learning thrives.
