My teaching approach:First of all, I want the students to be able to actually play songs. I have been playing and training for 15 years so I know my theory and techniques.I want to take you where you want to go as a player.The lessons have a little bit of what you want to know and what you need to know such as theory.I want it to be fun while you are learning.I take students of all ages and anyone can learn! 401212-6480 My influences are:Randy Rhoads, Dimebag Daroll, Ozzy, Amy Lee. I am influenced by anything creative ultimately.

Sometimes a lesson may take a couple weeks for a student to grasp, but that is dependent on the student. You will learn basic theory, reading and how to play of your favorite songs along the way. The student will always be play during their lesson so I know they understand the material.The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following:My ideal student is someone who ultimately loves the instrument and loves playing it. I take anyone from beginner levels to intermediate/advance. It always helps when the students are practicing the material on a weekly basis so the lessons are efficient and constructive.
