My teaching approach: I teach popular styles except classical, hiphop, ethnic and flamenco. Guitar playing is FUN. My teaching style is to find songs you want to play, and inject necessary concepts into the process of learning it. Includes music theory and technique. I use ear training, chord diagrams, tab, even standard notation. Bring songs or use my library. My background is in bands, in living rooms, and in the studio. So I can teach you to play by yourself, with others or in bands. My influences are: The British Invasion and folkies got me going in the last 60's - but I've been in bands since then, learning whatever was popular in each d ... View Profile
