About this pro

I have over 9 years of guitar experience in technical progressive rock and metal. Ive played in a critically acclaimed band, Dynamite Thunderpunch in Cincinnati, Ohio for the past five years and learned a lot abkut different guitar techniques and styles from over 100 different bands that I was fortunate enough to play shows with. I'm self taught, and with that, understand how long and frustrating learning the guitar can be. I want to be both your instructor and friend so that you can playnthe songs and music you want to play most.

I really look forward to working with each and every one of you.

I love seeing my student's succeed and reach new goals. Especially goals they thought were impossible.

FAQs


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

My first step is to assess my student's current abilities and mixing that with their goals, we will develop both a short span and long span lesson plan to get you playing where you want to be.


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

I have 9 years of guitar practice and 10 years of trumpet lessons. I've seen first hand how a proper music lesson is conducted for nearly half of my life, while being self taught on the guitar, I'm very capable of guiding students where they want to go.


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

I charge $15 per half hour, $25 per hour. We will play together unless you prefer to have me evaluate and teach you without an instrument in my hands. 


How did you get started teaching?

I've always loved education, I'm currently in grad school for architecture and urban design masters degrees. I spent three years teaching snowboarding, and during that time, I developed a love for knowledge, practice, and friendly instruction. My first students were when I was 17, that started as a baby sitting job and ultimately turned into two years of private guitar lessons for a family.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked from 3 year olds on children's acoustics, to teenagers learning speed metal. I enjoy all music. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My band recently released a full length post apocalyptic spaghetti western rock opera called Coyote Gunfight, so that's pretty neat.


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

I'd advise students looking for a teacher to find an instructor they feel comfortable with and will push them to learn and experience the instrument in the way they want to.


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

You need to think about how dedicated you are to yo ur instrument and where your next goal is. Learning an instrument can become a life long process and you can exceed your expectations by setting small goals for yourself. Where do you want to start?
