My teaching approach: I am an avid student of guitar and am in constant search for more knowledge. I know fingerstyle guitar, pop and rock, and Classical. I have studied music theory so I can apply bits and pieces of all styles to my playing as well as my teaching. My students get an excited teacher who loves to learn and pass on knowledge to students. I will help you on your musical journey whichever style you choose. I am focused on aiding every one of my students to grow as a guitarist as well as an artist.My influences are: Bach, Grateful Dead, Pearl Jam, Ben Harper, Billy McLaughlin just to name a very few.

After they learn the basics they decide for themselves whether they would like to learn with standard notation, tablature, or by ear. Advanced students choose which style to focus on and I make a customized plan.The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: Anybody that wants to learn is an ideal student and I find it easy to get along with all different types of people.
