My teaching approach:
I like to teach the student first by ear. I show songs that the student loves so they quickly and in a fun manner learn how to play. Then, if they are interested we start learning all the finer aspects of guitar playing like improvisation finger picking theory etc My influences are:
I started playing guitar very young so I've had many influences form Andre Segovia to Wes Montgomery but it was hearing Jimi Hendrix that sparked a lifetime love for the guitar. Later I studied Classical guitar and received a degree from the Cleveland Institute of music...during that time many top classical guitarist influenced me. Then I heard Stevie Ray Vaughan and was profoundly inspired and that started on a new path playing blues roots music and songwriting.My guitar lessons take place in:
The teacher's studio or the student's homeGuitar lessons typically take place on these days and hours:
I teach Monday through Thursday Saturday and Sunday most any Hour...I might do some lessons on Friday also.
