About this pro

I am a guitar teacher who also teaches other facets of music like songwriting, recording, and performance but my lessons and guide is to help the student build on his own strengths and to look at music from a different angle. Instead of just learning the typical scale and asking HOW do i play that, i come from the mindset of WHY you should play that. I cover areas such as FRETBOARD KNOWLEDGE, MUSIC THEORY, STRING SKIPPING, TIMING and many other areas to help the student become the best musician he can be. I have taught many students privately and even children at the JCC CAMP in CHERRY HILL, NJ. I have been playing guitar since 1986 and I am jazz taught

I enjoy opening up the minds of my students to find the hidden music that is in each and every one of us.
