    Mr. Violin was very patient in helping me with problems I have had for quite some time in my technique and theory. He methodically went through and changed my approach on both fronts and my guitar playing (specifically soloing) has improved greatly. I will def return for more lessons.


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

I usually setup a free meet and greet via Zoom to get more info about musical goals, what gear is needed, and discuss lesson policies. I’m flexible with times, days and make up times. I create custom lesson plans for every student because everyone learns differently.

Student recitals are also available.
