About this pro

I genuinely devote my life, all its limited time, to bettering my playing. I think it would be so fulfilling to pass this knowledge along, as my guitar tutor did for me.

Creative expession positively influences  most aspects of my life, even if it intrinsically doesn't involve it. It's an outlet, inspiration, release. All important things that manifest differently but start with music (for me).

FAQs


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

Fundamentally, I've found there to be a better and quicker result if you temper theory and scales, more academic sort of things, with easy but engaging songs. You won't get bored, or drown your mind with theories pertaining to a subject you've only just begun. and that sort of stuff in the befinning. 

In the end, of course, it is your money and your time--you can tell me what you'd like to learn and we can tailor it accordingly. What I mentioned above is just a general, overarching approach. 


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

15 years of playing, six years formal training, two years of touring


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

My guitar instructor charged this, and he is to this day the best guitarist I have ever heard. If he set lessons at $20, it'd be a crime for me to charge more.


How did you get started teaching?

Kids in high school, class-mates--helping them out. The ones that engaged and didn't gife it up after two or three lessons allowed me to discover just how much I enjoy it, and how rewarding it is to instill a person with the ability to genuinely create music. 


What types of students have you worked with?

Only classmates and teenagers of the county; I did these in person. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Did someone say "new guitar?" Hopefully arriving today but more than likely tomorrow. 


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

Some might say you're there to learn, not to wax philosophically or joke around with the instructor--and this makes no sense to me. I mean, I'm not saying you need caddy shack levels or humor, but rapport--good rapport--is very important. If you dread having to communicate with an instructor you do not like, jr you don't quit youlll still not be harnessing the benefits of good communication. 


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

• Music they enjoy

• your ultimate goal--an occasional hobby or a truly irrepressible passion
