    I love teaching guitar and have taught for 50 years. I began playing guitar at age nine. At age eighteen I studied classical guitar at the Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem under Joseph Yerushalmi. I also began at that time to teach guitar. In 1970 at age twenty-one I opened ‘The Guitar Studio’ in Bloomington Indiana and continued teaching 40 students per week. It was during this time that I wrote my method book for acoustic guitar called “Fingerpicking Folk Guitar”.

    I have been playing guitar for 20 years. I started teaching guitar about 5 years ago. I love to teach! It is such an awesome feeling when a student comes back, plays, and sings a song you have just taught them! I took lessons from one of the music stores for a short time, after 6 weeks I had learned the notes on the first string and how to play Beethovens, "Ode to Joy". I have to admit, I got bored and quit! Because of this I have several lesson plans that teach songs as well as chords and scales. Songs that you want to learn! It is a mixture of work and fun.
