Guitar lessons aimed at YOUR interests!
Voted "Most loved Music lessons in St. Paul" by Hulafrog.com!
My teaching philosophy is simple: Have a fun time learning the guitar via the music YOU like best! My job, is to get you playing the kind of music that makes you want to pick-up the guitar everyday!
Ever wanted the skill to play fast solos, sweep-picked arpeggios, and completely understand the fret-board? Maybe you just wanted to improve your over-all lead guitar technique? Maybe you have never touched a guitar, but would like to start playing! Let me help you!
I've been teaching students these skills for over 16 years, with each lesson custom-tailored to you and and your individual needs as a guitar player. I am a college educated instructor and performer with Blues, Rock, Metal, Flamenco and Classical being my specialities. I offer weekly half-hour and hour lessons Monday-Friday and offer competitive rates. Contact me to set-up a phone consultation and we can get you on your way!
I love seeing students excited about picking up the guitar and playing! Be it learning a favorite song, or writing music, watching students find joy in their instrument is always a pleasure!
I also enjoy working with students who have learning challenges such as autism, dyslexia, neurological issues, and aspergers.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I start by getting to know what genre of music the student is most interested in studying, and any goals they might have. I then customize lessons based on that discussion, and what will best help the student achieve their goals!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I studied musicology, composition, and music education in the United states, Japan, and throughout Europe.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I offer competitive rates for weekly half-hour and hour lessons paid per month. I also offer options for per-lesson payments as well. We can discuss rates upon speaking with each other!
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
The best question a student should ask themselves is "What style of music am I going to have the most fun learning about?"
