About this pro

My teaching approach: It's important to me that you enjoy my lessons and have fun with the guitar. The more you enjoy playing, the more you're going to play. I've been playing professionally for over thirty years in too many groups to mention. My bands have opened for numerous recording artists, including some you may have heard of. Currently I'm playing with four different groups. Big Pete Pearson (Arizona's King of the Blues) and the Blues Sevilles, The Tumblers (my rock and Northern Soul band), The Shambles (my own blues band), and Honey Don't ( my jazz/blues duo).My influences are: BB King, Albert King, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Freddie King, Carlos Santana, Chuck Berry, Kieth Richards, Robben Ford, Harry Jacobson, Danny Gatton, Coco Montoya, James Hunter, and Buddy Miller.My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studio or the student's homeGuitar Lessons with me take place in the following areas: Any location within 20 miles of Mount Desert Island, Maine.Guitar Techniques: Guidance In Equipment Selection, Scales and Exercises, Music Theory, Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Open tuning, Slide Guitar, Performance, Jamming Skills, Reading MusicYour first guitar lesson with me might include the following: I find out where the student is at with the instrument by asking lots of questions and having the student play. I also ask what the student wants to learn from me, and what type of music they're interested in. I assess the students ability by having them play and by playing along with them.A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: My lessons will start with a brief review of the last lesson and I help with any problems or difficulties they may have had with it. We then move on to the next step, and I make sure they understand whatever new material I'm giving them. The lesson usually ends with me playing the new material along with them so I can make sure they'll be working on the right things. There's usually some jamming that takes place.The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: A student who practices every day, attends weekly (or by-weekly) lessons, doesn't bounce checks, and most importantly, loves to play guitar.
