About this pro

My teaching approach: Most players begin with technique and learn to recognise the tones they play as they learn to move their fingers. My goal is to instill right away an understanding of the theory of the instrument so that you immediately begin to play what you like to hear. Every students' needs differ and each eventually develop their own voice. I strive, with all diligence, to most effectively instruct you as your needs demand. My influences are: Eric Johnson, Allan Holdsworth, Phil Keaggy, Michael Hedges, Tommy Emmanuel, Joe Satriani, Steve Morse, John Petrucci, Shawn Lane, Guthrie Govan, Joe Pass, Jim Hall, Jimmie Herring, Mark O' Connor, Edgar MeyerMy guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studio or the student's homeGuitar lessons typically take place on these days and hours: Sunday 4-10pm, Monday and Tuesday Noon-9pm, Wednesday 3-5pm and 9-10pm, Thursday Noon-9pm, Friday Noon-5pmGuitar Techniques: Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Open tuning, Fingerstyle, 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: Meet and greet as the student would like making sure to clarify your goals. Then I test your playing skills and know-how with target questions and postural inspection. I ask about your knowledge of theory, whether you have experience with other instruments, and I ask you to hold and play the instrument in the way you feel is the most appropriate. I look at the mechanics of the hand; posture; and finger positions and make adjustments accordingly for most effective practice.A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: Depending on what questions you may have we generally take the first third of the lesson to review what was taught in the previous one. If your grasp of the material is satisfactory then we take the next third to learn something new. The last portion is a synopsis of what we've covered so far and any misgivings, questions, comments, compliments or smart remarks are welcome. We cover tone recognition, theory and chops in order to achieve our goal: to play something enjoyable that can be recognized and remembered every single lesson. I then text an itinerary of all we've covered in the hour.The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: Someone who follows directions, is not defensive (you've come to learn), and is willing to practice what I give them AT LEAST 5 MINUTES A NIGHT; six nights a week. This kind of dedication will guarantee your education and shows me that you actually want to play.
