How did you get started teaching?

I decided one day I wanted to teach people how to play the guitar. Because of the positive effect it had on my life. Learning to play instilled confidence in me.Which I was able to appply in all areas of my life. I want to pass that down and help people become musicians. Whether it’s just for  a hobby or they want to become a professional


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students from the ages of 7-60. I have worked with complete beginner students and intermediate students. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

When one of my best students who was 14 started Highschool and made the Jazz band at his school. His years of dedication and hard work payed off. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would tell them to make sure the teachers program does not just include teaching boring scales and music theory. Don’t get me wrong those are important. But Because that can be boring and the student loses interest quickly. The atud3nt needs to learn songs and how to apply the music theory. Learning songs and playing music is why people want to learn to play in the first place. So let’s rock and have some fun. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Here is the basic lessons each stage. I can come to the student that is no problem. I have an intermediate lesson plan and one for leading the blues. Depending on what the student knows. Is where we will begin. I have different practice techniques that will make the students progress quickly if they practice.
