I teach primarily classical guitar, acoustic guitar and singing together, music theory, and songwriting. Experience teaching music includes 32 years at Loyola New Orleans, 24 years at University of New Orleans, and 25 years at Tulane University, as well as private lessons. In addition I perform frequently (Tuesdays at the Columns Hotel). I teach all levels, but am looking for students that want to practice on a regular basis.
Performing makes me a better teacher, and teaching makes me a better performer!

I start by asking them what they want to learn, and work from that. I also ask them to prepare a couple of pieces and to write out a shortlist with six month goals and two year goals for their first meeting.
