Music By Ear And For The Heart
I spend more time than most for less money. I write my own songs and have recorded. Although I don't do this for a living I have been around guitar and music for 30 years.
LOVE seeing people learn and RUN with what I teach them.
It means more than any amount of money paid and again that's why i spend more time than most for less money than most charge.
Able to read music
