I specialize in teaching beginners the fun part, learning to play songs.

Although l primarily teach the folk, folk-rock, protest, and classic rock of the 60s and 70s, l am happy to utilize songs that my students want to learn.

I suggest weekly lessons so you have both adequate practice time and also build upon previous lessons.

I charge $50/hr if you come to me and $65/hr if l travel to you. Most students are able to play one song by the end of the first or second lesson.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions by text first at 657/480-6211 and l look forward to helping YOU reach YOUR musical goals.

Peace & blessings,

    Frequently asked questions

    I am personable and ask the student what qualities they desire in a teacher.  I am professional and utilize gentle accountability in my process and am quite supportiver and encouraging as well as break down the process into manageable pieces so the student can achieve the success of playing their first and/or next song as soon as possible

    I first taught guitar over thirty years ago to first time learners in a summer camp environment and have worked with students in various styles and levels of experience.

    For in home lessons, I charge $65/hour and for students traveling to me, I charge $50/hour

    As I started learning and asking others for tips, others began to ask me and I found that my gentle and supportive style was highly successful.
