Besides playing live music several nights a week, I teach guitar in the Houston area to beginner, intermediate, and advanced guitarists who are looking to improve their skills and learn new songs the right way. You will learn the techniques you want to learn, and the songs that you enjoy, as well as the music theory behind those songs. I know that when you learn the "how" and the "why" behind a song, you can apply that knowledge to other songs, and even use that knowledge to write your own songs. I am well-versed in lead guitar playing and improvisation using scales on top of chord structures, and love to share that knowledge with students who are eager to learn. Whether you want to learn just a few new guitar chords/scales, some new songs, or learn how to rip a scorching guitar solo, I've got you covered!
I enjoy teaching students who are willing to put in the effort to improve their skills.
Sparky is an amazing musician and brings his love of music to each lesson. He tries to tailor lessons to each student’s own musical preferences and teaches them the music they love.
When working with a new student, I get familiar with what they have already learned and I find out what they would like to improve on. Whether its learning a particular song, or learning how to improvise a guitar solo etc. I want the student to walk away from the lesson having learned something that they will put to use.
My students always leave with something to practice on their own between lessons.
Students can freely contact me with any guitar questions between lessons.
When I started playing guitar, I took lessons from a great teacher and I believe that those early lessons helped my improve exponentially.
$25 for a half-hour lesson. $50 for an hour lesson.
I started with teaching friends of mine. Then, those friends told their freinds and next thing I knew, I had a handful of students.
I have taught complete beginners all the way to advanced players who already perform on stage.
