    In one way or another I have been in the music business my entire life. Playing for TV shows or in concerts, teaching, or a sideman for casuals, music has always been my life and passion. I have been playing since I was 11 years old and started playing professionally since I was 13. I have pre-made lesson plans that cover many styles and all levels of the guitar. I have a great upbeat disposition, am self-motivated, reliable, and love to go to work every day! Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Westlake Village, CA 91361

    I teach music because after taking lessons for years, I still hadn’t been taught how to just sit down and play something from the radio, play different styles, or write my own songs.  All I could do was read music, which limited me to classical and theater music.  This is the situation most students of traditional lessons find themselves in.  How unfulfilling for all that time and money; there is so much more!  I discovered it in college when I took from a teacher who would eventually become a coach to many “American Idol” finalists.  Over the past 20
