About this pro

Unlike a lot of teachers, I cater to your specific wants when it comes to teaching. If you only want to learn a few chords so you can play your favorite country song, then that is all we will focus on.

If you want to dive a little deeper into the theory behind why the chords go together we can do that as well. It is literally up to what you are wanting to get out of your time playing the guitar.

I have been playing guitar for over 35 years. I am currently focusing on songwriting and writing songs to have recorded by the Americana/ Country music industry. If you have aspirations for songwriting I can help with that as well.

Let me know how we can help you enjoy creating music on the guitar.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

On the first lesson, I go over memorizing notes on the fretboard as an exercise for that week, while visiting with either the student or the parent on what they are trying to achieve with the lessons.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Pricing for lessons is $20 a half hour lesson.

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching guitar in 1989 at Guitar Man Music Shop in Camdenton.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with young kids, young adults in their 30s just starting guitar, as well as a gentleman in his 70s that had always wanted to learn.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I believe that learning is all about connection. I would advise students to look for someone they connect with. Don't feel like you are obligated to stick with someone.

If the chemistry isn't there after the first lesson, keep looking until you find the teacher that connects with you.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should think about what they are wanting to accomplish through their lessons. If you go into the lesson process with a clear goal of what you are wanting to achieve you will get far more out of your lesson experience.
