About this pro

My teaching approach: I have been self taught for 15 years now. 2 years of traditional lessons. Teaching for 2 years. I played in a couple cover bands where I grew up. Then finally got out on my own. I have multiple references from past students if needed. Acoustic is my preferred genre of teaching. I feel like there is so much for character with acoustic. My influences are: Bon Iver, Motion city sound track, Copeland, Dave Matthews band, Ben Harper, The avett brothers, David Gray, Death Cab for Cutie, The flaming lips, Michael Franti, Glas Vegas, Flight of the Concords, John fogerty, John Mayer, Wilco, 311, Rise Against, Sublime, Say anything, Brand new... My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studio or the student's home Guitar Techniques: Improvisation, Reading Music, Scales and Exercises, Recording and Production, Guidance In Equipment Selection, Rhythm guitar.

I find a lot of satisfaction in having a student learn something proficiently and have this big grin on their face like "I finally got it perfect!".

FAQs


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

Getting to know the wants and needs of the student and also finding out what teaching style works best for each one. Start with a good foundation and build up from there.


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

I have 2 years of formal training from Northwest Florida State College, and I have been playing guitar for over 15 years now.


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

It's usually $25-$30 per hour.


How did you get started teaching?

The first place I started was takelessons.com which is now lessons.com. I was contacted via email and after an interview and background process I started taking my first students. I taught down in Orlando starting off but moved back home to a small town so there wasn't much opportunity to teach anymore. Now that I am in Atlanta I would like to start teaching again.


What types of students have you worked with?

Any and all. I love working with people that have a passion for music. The best ones are the students that put in the work to receive the benefits.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Getting to go to a private screening for Mumford and Sons new EP provided by a local radio station.


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

Be willing to give the teacher a few lessons to see if their teaching style is right for you. Don't be afraid to switch teachers if need be to really get the most of your learning experience. Make sure the teaching is clear and structured.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Make sure there is appropriate time to achieve the goals you have for yourself in a realistic manner. Really think of the type of music and style you want to play.
