    At Granger Lessons, one thing that's very different from lessons elsewhere, is bringing in other musicians to jam in a band type setting once the student feels comfortable. This has proven to be a great aid in getting the student accustomed to performing with others if this is one of their personal goals. I am well versed in blues, rock and roll, metal, classical, funk, jazz, and reggae, and of course have always been passionate about teaching, no matter what style you're into.
