As a musician of over 12 years, I excel in improvisational performance (guitar/piano), singing, and songwriting (I can read/write music and tablature). As an teacher, I am not only a hardworking leader, but I am kind and patient. What sets me apart from other services is that my main goal as a teacher is to suit my students, allowing them to learn as effectively as possible.
What I enjoy most about the work I do is that I not only get to be of service to others and make a difference in their lives, but I also get to spread the beauty and joy of music.
What I liked about working with LaroqueAndRoll was the immense sense of comfort of learning from him. I felt I could make a mistake and I would get the best effort from him to ensure I’d get it right the next time.
Great musician with a lot of knowledge and a great teacher as well. 10/10 recommend
His motivation and drive for teaching guitar
Figuring out how they want to approach the instrument. Whether it be learning chords, learning lead guitar, or just learning more about musical theory, I'm ready to take it at their pace.

$50 an hour, $60 if I'm travelling to you. I am willing to negotiate but I am aware of what my time & effort are worth.
I started teaching back in 2016 when friends and family friends were interested in learning and I was the only one who was in the position to teach. From there, I've grown to love teaching music!
