I love making personalized materials for my students, whether it be arrangements of songs from your favorite show or video-game, or transcriptions of great guitar parts you've always wanted to learn. I always try to be patient and my goal is always that you walk away with something new to work on, feeling empowered and able to work on it. If I can successfully progress a student according to their skill level and needs, then I feel I have made a difference!
