Virtual Guitar Mentor
I am passionate about helping my students reach their goals and maximize their potential. Through 15 years of instruction and literally hundreds of students, I have developed teaching methods that make it easier for students to advance and feel excited about their progress. I have traveled across the U.S. and around the world playing music. I've also been featured on numerous albums, many of them being national and international releases. Let's get started today!
I most enjoy the thought of being a catalyst for my students. I hope to influence and impact their musical journey in a completely positive way that sets them up for success in regard to their specific goals for the guitar.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I always begin by asking students about themselves and their goals. I then create a plan of action based on those goals. If students don't already have goals, we talk about their musical tastes and aspirations. I make recommendations as well.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I learned much about guitar and musicianship from serving with top quality musicians in Dallas, TX. Their input and example have made me a much better guitar player and instructor.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
It depends on how long the student would like his/her lessons to be. I like to chat with the student and understand his/her goals and current skill level better and make a recommendation based on that.
How did you get started teaching?
I started teaching guitar shortly after high school and later added other instruments, including voice after I'd had an incredible experience with my own vocal coach.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with students of all ages and skill levels. I believe I have a knack for helping students take their playing to the next level, as well as helping beginners advance very quickly.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I especially enjoyed a gig I played recently where I got to play some blues jams with one of my greatest friends.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Don't settle for just any instructor. Find somebody that's invested in you and your best interest. Find someone with the heart of a teacher who makes you feel good about what you're doing.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Ask yourself: what do I want to be able to play or sing in one year from now? Five years? Ten? Then, let your instructor know your answers and how you arrived at them. If they don't seem interested, find someone else to help you. You deserve the chance to discover and maximize your potential.
