I offer the 1st lesson free to all new students.

I give the student the ability to learn at there own pace and choose there own goals in a fun and welcoming musical environment.

I've been teaching for over 25yrs and I am a full time musician.

Being a full time musician gives me the ability to teach students to cominicate with other musicians in a full band scenario, small group or duo performance.

I also have the ability to show students how to perform live for audiences in a solo, duo or group situation. Even if you just want to just jam with some friends at the beach.

I offer group classes in a spacious social distance manner for Guitar, bass, ukulele, Drumset and percussion.

Frequently asked questions

I work on understanding the parts of the instrument, the sounds of the instrument and getting comfortable holding the instrument sitting down or standing. 
 I then start into playing a few chords and get them to play songs in the very first lesson with audio versions of the songs from slow to fast.

I've collaborated in a top selling Warner Bro's. Publication "Turn it Up & Lay it Down Vol 1" which was a book highly used at Berkeley school of music..

 I've studied guitar and bass with several string instructors Thomas Garafolo, Jay Sweet, Franky Cicala to name a few.

 I've been teaching guitar, Bass and ukulele at private schools around New Jersey for the past 15yrs. 

 I teach ukulele and guitar group classes on the beach for manasquan music.

My 1st student came to me because of seeing me play with a local band. His friends then started wanting to take lessons and that's where it started.

 I then was selected by Neil Garthly of the Academy of Drums to teach at his private school. I initially started teaching only Drumset, percussion and hand percussion until Neil wanted to start teaching guitar at the school and he had asked me to head the program. 

 Jay Sweet of Sweet Music Academy contacted me to teach guitar, bass, drums and percussion, full band classes, group classes and ukulele group classes.
