About this pro

I teach using chords and songs to get students playing something interesting quickly.  We cover many styles and types of music and I encourage ear training, and learning how to figure out accompaniment on your own.  We cover some theory as the student desires.  I have a degree in music theory and can teach reading but that is not required.  I take students from where they are and build on their abilities and likes.  We usually have lots of fun.  Check out

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

I start with new students from where they are musically.  I take complete beginners, but also those who have played for years.  Lessons last one hour.  I do not use contracts.  You pay when you come.  I also teach groups.  Students under 10 have a half hour class.

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

I have a degree in music theory, and have years of experience teaching individuals and groups.  I currently teach guitar for non-credit at the local university as well as a local senior center and individuals.

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

My lessons are $20 per hour.  Group rates are $10 per person per hour.

How did you get started teaching?

I have played guitar since I was 14 years old.  After getting my degree, I taught guitar and piano at Berkshire School of Music in western Massachusetts.  After moving to Tennessee I continued teaching independently.

What types of students have you worked with?

All types and ages.
