About this pro

My teaching approach: All lessons are based on each student’s individual needs. Rusty likes to teach what he calls musicianship; musicianship consists of music theory and technique. Theory teaches you the understanding of how chords, scales, melody and harmony work and technique gives you the physical ability to take the music in your creative mind to your instrument. You could be a musical genius but if you don’t have the physical ability to unlock it no one will ever know. So what are you waiting for schedule your lesson today. My influences are: Rhoads, Malmsteen, Gilbert, Becker, Holdsworth, Gambale, Chopin, Paganini, Liszt, Alkan,, Lane,My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studioGuitar lessons typically take place on these days and hours: Mon - Friday and every other Saturday 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm or laterGuitar Techniques: Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Music Theory, Scales and Exercises, Song Writing, Recording and Production, Guidance In Equipment SelectionYour first guitar lesson with me might include the following: review what they already know and to get started learning new materialA guitar lesson with me might entail the following: get in there and get to workThe qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: Someone who is interested in learning

    Rusty has his own and unique approach to teaching that is very understandable and interesting. He can help you out with literally anything you want and is on of the most kind and humble people in the industry. I can recommend lessons with Rusty to everyone and can’t say enough good things about him.

    In my opinion he is the best teacher i think a guitar extremist you can get.

    Rusty was able to teach technique from beginner to advanced with clarity. His lessons allowed me to have as much runway ahead of me as possible (provided I put in the necessary work). At no point should any of his students be concerned they might outgrow him as a teacher. We covered all the essentials (alternate, sweep, legato, tapping, etc.) in-depth and touched on chicken-picking. He taught technique through a mix of drills and licks/riffs that struck a balance between building skill and being fun to practice. Rusty was also able to teach more advanced music theory to supplement his exercise (covering diatonic modes, chord substitution, etc.)
