    Learning guitar with Adrian has been so much fun. He challenges us in just the right way. He differentiates for the various skills in the class. He creates a very supportive and respectful environment.

    I began studying guitar with Adrian 3-1/2 years ago after not having played music for 30 years. I have learned more from him in that time that I did previously in 13 years of study. Adrian enjoys teaching and knows how to teach, and has encouraged me to do my best and have confidence. It has truly been one of the best experiences of my life.

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

My students work with me to make lessons fun and motivating. Most people want to make music because it's enjoyable. However, we all know that some of the work isn't all that fun. I help people decide what is worth the time to meet their goals. I offer inspiration to get through the hard stuff.

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

I studied guitar at Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and earned a BA in Music Education from Miami University. I have been teaching for more than 30 years.

How did you get started teaching?

I had a few questionable teachers as a young music student. I was sure I could do a better job. Teaching turned into my passion.

What types of students have you worked with?

You are welcome here. All colors, sizes, orientations, identities, cultures, beliefs, are welcome and safe here.
