My teaching style starts with songs that a student what’s to learn. Building and working on techniques for:
Right-hand, left-hand and the thumb,
Playing comfortably with a metronome,
Scales & modes with my *Octave Box* technique,
Chord knowledge, movement, and the “Nashville” number system,
String-bending, vibrato, dynamics and also slide guitar.
I enjoy working with students of all levels and ages, teaching and supporting the creative process with the tools and techniques to develop a students’ own style and musical ideas. *I can also help develop and refine your “sound”; consulting on the right instrument & equipment (amps, effects, and guitars that you need/want to help create the sound you’re hearing in your head).

I’ve really enjoyed my guitar lessons with him. He’s a very skilled player and he is a patient teacher. I’m not afraid to ask questions and I always enjoy my lessons.
