About this pro

I've been playing guitar for 30 years and can appreciate all genres. I love nurturing the enthusiasm for music. Developing proper dexterity that guitar requires a through a curriculum of fingering exercises and songs that develope the muscles and also keep the brain interested. I played in many local bands in Houston Texas playing guitar, bass and vocals. 

The excitement when hard work pays off and the student gets their first " aha moment".

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First I like to get a gauge of interst level so I can tweak the curriculum to be more personal for the student.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

30 years of playing guitar. 2nd place singer/songwriter competition in Austin Texas. Played many live shows. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

40 dollars per 1/2 hour

How did you get started teaching?

I have 5 nephews that were all at one time interested so I gave lessons here and there and also to friends kids. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Mostly younger students. Some rowdy and some quiet. Lessons can be tweeked to fit the students needs.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

we just moved to Boston so getting back on stage for an open mic at the lizard lounge was a great experience. I love the stage.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

your not just learning the guitar. You're also learning patience, communication and appreciation for music as a whole. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Be honest with yourself about what you want to learn and also be open to suggestions as the teacher may be able to see a little farther than the student....sometimes.
