About this pro

My teaching approach: I teach what you want to learn. After the basics of guitar, you tell me what songs/style you want to focus on and we do exactly that. I recommend starting off with an acoustic guitar because the strings are tighter and once you've gotten used to it electric guitar will be a breeze. I've got 17 years experience with guitar, recording, song-writing, singing and performing. I have recorded 4 professional full length albums and 2 personally recorded full length records. I have also spent 6 years touring the country with acts such as Ozzfest, Godsmack, Incubus, Pantera, Sevendust, Staind, ect.My influences are: Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon, U2, Tom Petty, Radiohead, Coldplay, Alice In Chains, Green Day, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Incubus, John Mayer ect.My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studio or the student's homeGuitar Lessons with me take place in the following areas: I teach at my apt. in Ayer, MA. Or, I will travel to where you are in Worcester County.Guitar Techniques: Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Reading Music, Music Theory, Scales and Exercises, Song Writing, Recording and Production, Guidance In Equipment Selection, Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Fingerstyle, Vocal AccompanimentYour first guitar lesson with me might include the following: The first lesson I explain what everything is called on the guitar and it's function. I will ask if you've ever played guitar and what goals you have for yourself. Then I will show how you hold a pick and work on your form plucking the strings, then I teach you guitar tablature (reading music) and we do a couple exercises together. If those go smoothly, I will introduce guitar chords and show the proper form to make them sound smooth.A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: A guitar lesson always starts with tuning the guitar. Sometimes with a tuner and other times by ear. We then would run through the song/exercise you've been working on and see how it's coming along. I will then give advice on your technique and how you can improve your playing ability. Guitarists with no instruction will make things more difficult then they need to be. I will show you correct form to make you feel much more comfortable.The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: Someone that is excited to learn and has time to practice. I teach all age groups and move at your pace.
