I’ve taught guitar, bass, songwriting and voice for 30 yrs. to literally hundreds of satisfied clients including multi-platinum artists. I myself am a former Columbia and Motown recording artist and writer. Many of my former and current clients have chosen a career in music.
I took guitar lessons with Chuck for several years, and they were an absolute integral part of my music education. Chuck is a highly proficient musician and teacher, and his knowledge of the guitar and wisdom of music in general were a source of inspiration throughout the years. He always catered his lessons specifically to whatever got me excited and inspired, and he put me on a course of curiosity that has served my passion and career in music well. I highly recommend Chuck to anyone looking for a teacher that is highly qualified, relatable, and fun!
If it’s a new student, I get them playing a song as quickly as possible. If it’s someone with experience, I chat with them about their level of expertise, what they want to accomplish and go from there. I always ask what sort of music they want to make.
