About this pro

My teaching approach: I focus on helping students both learn about music and feel good making it. I have a Masters degree and a bachelors degree in guitar performance and love to teach! I teach all levels and all ages. You will get a very thorough guitar and music training in a relaxed environment. I've been teaching and performing guitar for over 15 years. I've played on cruise ships and have toured nationally and internationally. I've taught at community schools of music and music businesses in addition to maintaining my own lesson studio.My influences are: Although I specialize in Jazz Guitar, I teach a wide variety of music - everything from Bluegrass to Death Metal. Lessons are tailored to the student's interests - whether that be songwriting, improving technique, learning new music theory or accomplishing a goal that they've set.My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studioGuitar Lessons with me take place in the following areas: My Studio in Mundelein ILGuitar Techniques: Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Open tuning, Fingerstyle, Slide Guitar, Vocal Accompaniment, Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Reading Music, Music Theory, Scales and Exercises, Song Writing, Recording and Production, Guidance In Equipment SelectionYour first guitar lesson with me might include the following: For beginners I can help you learn to play dozens of songs within the first few weeks you're learning the guitar.

I also offer the chance to have lessons recorded and then emailed in MP3 format following each lesson. This allows students the chance to review the material for the next lesson.The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: I'm looking for students with a passion to learn!
