About this pro

Since graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2004, I have taught thousands of students, from beginner to advanced, to be better guitar players. Every student is unique and every lesson is catered to the student. I teach fundamentals all the way to advanced styles. I also perform about 150-200 shows a year, so I don’t just “teach,” I also actively  play. 

Music has been my #1 passion since I was 4 years old, when I started piano lessons. At 12, a friend taught me a Nirvana song on the guitar, and the rest is history. Upon gratuading from Berklee in 2004 Cum Laude, I moved to the Florida Pandandle where I perform and teach at 2 local music stores as well as out of my home recording studio. I’ve performed in casinos, colleges, bars, restaurants, weddings, parties, and everything in between.

    Very patient and knowledgeable. Never thought I would be able to play guitar, and I do have a long way to go...but, if he can teach me.... he's your guy!! Highly recommend him.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I ask a few questions to see where they are at in the beginning, and then I start filling in the gaps. I teach the proper way to learn songs, the proper way to learn scales, how to think about chords, sight reading is optional but recommend, exercises, advanced techniques like sweep picking and tapping, and more. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I graduated Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music, generally thought to be the best music school in the world. I’ve also taught 30-60 students a week for the last 15 years. I also perform about 150-200 shows a year with my band. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Lesson are $115 a month if you drive to my studio for 4 thirty minute lessons, once a week. For those that prefer an hour a week, which is better if possible, it’s $230 a month for 4 hour long lessons. If you want me to drive to you, I’m happy to, and there’s a $50 monthly travel fee if you’re within 25 miles. If your within 25-50 miles, there will be a $75 monthly travel fee. 


How did you get started teaching?

In high school, I taught friends as well as some middle school students. When at Berklee, I taught classmates that were impressed with my performance skills. From 2004 on, after I graduated, I decided teaching and performing was what I wanted to do, and was hired as a guitar instructor at Playground Music Center and Upbeat Music, and I also teach independently. 


What types of students have you worked with?

All skill level and ages. 5 years old-86 years old 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Any gig I play I play with 100% of my being. Tonight I’m playing a smaller bar gig, but I still am looking forward to it.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
