Maybe you want to learn guitar for the first time. Maybe you played as a teen and then, “grew up". Whatever the case I want to help you realize your goals.

I have been a performer and teacher for the last 25 years. As a performer I have released 6 albums, played on many more, and opened for the likes of James Brown, Parliament Funkadelic, Fishbone, G-Love & Special Sauce and numerous others. As a teacher I have taught privately and at the same performing arts high school that I attended. My goal is to provide a strong musical foundation for students and use their interests and goals as the guiding light for our lessons.

    I truly enjoyed working with Duncan and he was able to give me many tips and tricks during our lessons. He understands the rush to start playing songs but first helped me work on my initial technique to better my skills in the long run. He is very knowledgeable and easygoing as an instructor which is helpful for learners. Thanks!

    Only one session in and I can tell Mr. Duncan is a great music instructor. With his pace and calm demeanor, I could not have asked for a better instructor. He gave me the encouraging feeling that I could be a great guitar player tomorrow. I still have a long ways to go but I am definitely looking forward to our next session.

    Duncan has a very clear passion for music and teaching, and it shines through in the lessons. I look forward to our time slot and have been given plenty of exercises to keep me busy and improving in between. Highly recommend!

    Im only a few lessons in with Duncan, but I am very comfortable passing some praise to Duncan. Im an older learner (65). I tried to learn to play on my own for several years. After the first lesson with Duncan he/we found a few easily correctible issues that I had incorporated and have been going more smoothly every since. I find the lessons affordable and all praise to Duncan for the instruction.
    Thanks Duncan for tolerating the awful sounds that come from that guitar right now. I look forward performing music (not just sounds) very soon.
