My teaching approach: When I started taking lessons at the age of 9, my teachers only wanted to teach me songs and music that THEY liked and I almost quit because of it. As a result, I am dedicated to teaching my students the music that THEY love and I use that music to help them understand the fundamentals of music theory and technique. My belief is that music has to be fun as well as educational. I am currently offering online lessons only. You can learn from the comfort of your own home with one-on-one live video lessons!

My students have often told me that I helped them understand how to solve the physical problems they have had with playing and also helped understand the music they were playing more deeply. My main goal as a teacher is to give my students fluency both in their instrument and in the musical language (both in basics like scales and chords, and in specific elements of style, like blues rhythm, or South American accent patterns).

Fast Track Guitar And Songwriting

As a child, I struggled with the formal curriculums of music schooling. Like many others, I found textbooks and rigid repetitive exercises to be disheartening and divergent from what I enjoyed most about playing an instrument.  However, my love for listening to music and seeing concerts drew me back to the guitar time and time again, and I quickly began to discover the sheer joy in learning how to play the guitar. There are few hobbies more personally lucrative and enriching than making music, whether it be discovering a new chord or sharing a song with friends and family.  My experience with learning and teaching guitar is one of a ...
