About this pro

I have a B.S. in Guitar Performance and have been playing guitar for over 20yrs. With both teaching myself how to play as well as being taught at the collegiate level I bring a vast range of skills and knowledge to the beginning, intermediate, and advanced players. My easy-going nature will help you learn guitar well and have fun doing it! 

I love helping others, especially in a field that I am passionate about. It's always a joy for me to help someone experience the guitar and find their own desire to learn more about it.

    Andy was so knowledgable with the guitar! He was easy to work with as well. We had lots of fun geeking out over guitar effects too.

  • Paul R.

    He was so easy to learn from! We moved at the pace I could handle and taught me easy little tricks to improve my playing in areas where I was struggling.

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

The first step is understanding what you know about the guitar. I'll ask questions about your musical tastes and what you hope to accomplish. Then I can craft a specific lesson plan that meets your needs and goals. 

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

I have a B.S. in Guitar Performance from Biola University. 

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

Generally, I do 30min in-person sessions for $40. Online sessions are 30min for $30. Anything outside of those two can be up for discussion!

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with all ages - from 9yrs old to 60 yrs old. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think through what you want to accomplish: Do you just want to learn a couple of songs? Do you want to play in a band? Do you want to read music? All of these can help me better focus on how I can best help you and help you fine-tune your expectations.
