I have been playing and teaching guitar for45 years. I have no greater joy than sharing my love of the guitar with audiences and students.My primary focus is acoustic fingerstyle guitar. I play blues, folk, acoustic rock, and some jazz and classical music as well. I have also played electric guitar in classic rock and blues bands since the early 1970s, and have more recently played in theater performances and show bands covering a wider range of musical eras and genres. My desire is to be the teacher that I would have liked to have taken lessons from by teaching practicable skills that are rooted in a good understanding of music theory. Finally, I try to keep things light and make learning guitar fun. I wouldn't do it if I didn't love it, and I try to cultivate that enjoyment with my students.
