About this pro

We teach students of all ages (3+) and abilities from our convenient South Asheville location. What makes us different? We offer Suzuki guitar lessons for young children, and offer classical guitar lessons for all ages, as well as other styles. Students studying rock, folk, or jazz with us can benefit from our expert knowledge in classical guitar studies. When a guitar teacher has comprehensive knowledge of the instrument from a classical perspective, this gives the students a unique advantage in understanding the whole instrument and the music, from inside and out. Here we help our students learn in a way that empowers them. Register for your free trial lesson to see what it's all about!

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

Every student has their own path. During the trial lesson I work with each person to make that path clear before beginning to give instruction. The guitar is such an awesome and diverse instrument, it's easy to get overwhelmed if you don't have a teacher providing you with focused clear instruction.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Masters Degree in Guitar Performance

Suzuki Certified

Years of experience performing across the US

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

$25 per half hour

$50 per hour

How did you get started teaching?

This is a long story that I'd be happy to share in person. The short answer is that after doing many jobs I've learned that teaching guitar is what I was born to do. 

What types of students have you worked with?

All kinds... ;)

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My cat chasing a ribbon.

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

Find a teacher and take lessons in person. There are lots of places to get free instruction online, however if you don't know what you're looking for or what you need you can literally waste years searching.
