The Gift Of Music, Guitar And PC Mastery

Offers online services


I don't just teach music and computer skills, I teach my students what they really want to know: how to become great at what they do.

In my almost 20 years of playing guitar and 15 years in technology I've learned many things I wish someone would have told me when I was starting out.

My goal is to fast track my students to greatness by making sure the knowledge and skills they gain in every lesson will serve them for the long term and have a lasting impact as they continue to improve their abilities.

Frequently asked questions

After gaining an understanding of my students current abilities and what their goals are, I develop my lesson plan so that each and every lesson is rich with concepts and excercises that the student can use long into the future.  

No one should expect to become an expert in the span of a 30-60 min lesson, but my goal is to arm my students with as much as possible so they are confident that, if they follow my strategies and put in the work, they will achieve the results and improvement they expect.

I've spent almost 20 years playing guitar and bass with hundreds of hours of lessons and other learning as it pertains to music theory.

I've been heavily invested in producing my own music using primarily PreSonus Studio One, but familiar with Ableton and a majority of the most popular plugins and other software such as Wave, Izotope, Fabfilter, and many others.

I've also been interested in computers since I was a kid (I'm now 33) and worked in information technology solutions for over 15 years. I'm proficient in Python 3, HTML, JavaScript, CSS, Ruby, and C#.  I welcome any student looking to improve basic computer skills or looking to learn to code.

My target is $50/hr, but will rarely turn away a student if they cannot afford it and I'm always willing to provide some instruction regardless of budget.

I've always loved to help people and share my knowledge with others.  I've always had a habit of making note of the things that make you go: "I wish someone would have told me that when I was starting out" and that has led me to develop a teaching style that gives my students the best chance at success.  Achieving a noticeable improvement in my skills is what I've found helped me to stick with learning certain topics, so I strive to provide my students the same.
