I have loved music since I was a young boy!  I enjoy teaching and seeing my students grow musically. My lessons are focused on your favorite musical styles and artists. I teach many styles of music including rock, jazz, blues and country. My understanding of music theory is extensive which allows my students to experience accelerated learning. I am a full time teacher with over forty years of playing music and am celebrating my 30th year anniversary as a professional instructor and music theory educational writer.
