About this pro

As a GRAMMY recognised guitarist/bassist you can be assured my knowledge I share is useful, indepth, incorporated all types of music, and targeted for your level of playing and musical interests. I bring years of performing, recording and of course teaching. Visit to learn more about me. 

I truly enjoy helping and sharing my years of music experience and knowledge.  Teaching students as young as 4 to people in their 70s is extremely rewarding for me when I see the progress they make.  Why take lessons? Learning an instrument can be very frustrating without guidance. There is a learning process which differs per student and you need to find an instructor who understands that and practices that. Not someone who simply follows a lesson plan that is not catered to you. Everyone learns differently and at different paces.

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

Determine their interest, level of knowledge and why they want to learn to play. 

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

Studied at Combs College of Music in Philadelphia, years of recording, performing and teaching private lessons. 

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

It really depends on the student. If very young it's best to start with 15 minute lessons. Average productive lesson is 30 minutes. I also offer 45 minute but rarely do an hour lesson unless the student is advanced. 

How did you get started teaching?

I went to study theory with a known guitarist/teacher and in several weeks he asked if I would take his 30+ students as he was moving to Boston. This led to teaching in two music stores totaling 45 students.

What types of students have you worked with?

Really all types, ages and abilities. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I always enjoy performing and traveling through music. 

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

I teach all genres. Each style of music presents it's unique challenges but the main thing to look for is the teacher's approach to learning as it varies per student.

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

Why they are wanting to play music. What style of music. Avaialbe time to put towards the learning process.
