About this pro

My teaching approach: My approach is aimed directly towards teaching individuals from all levels and aspects of music patiently. I will teach students anywhere from Top Ten Hits to Extreme Metal and everything in-between. I create all of my lessons myself and believe that doing so allows for a better understanding, as well as a more personal approach for developing each student in their own way. I taylor each and every lesson to accommodate each individual student. I have been playing for 15+ years and professionally recording and performing for over 10. My influences are: John Petrucci, Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Greg Howe, Paco de Lucio, Alex Webster, J.S. Bach, Nicoli Paganini, Mozart, Al Dimeola, Jaco Pastorius, Jeff Loomis, Vinnie Moore, and many, many more...My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studioGuitar Lessons with me take place in the following areas: Hamilton, NJGuitar Techniques: Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Fingerstyle, Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Music Theory, Scales and Exercises, Song Writing, Recording and Production, Guidance In Equipment SelectionYour first guitar lesson with me might include the following: I can see how confident and experienced a student is the moment they hold and strum their instrument.

A student starting with my Beginner course would focus more on proper handling and posture before heading into theory and learning songs.
