About this pro

I picked up a guitar when I was 13 and never put it down. Personally, I'm a Family man, Husband, and Father of 2 wonderful kids. I've played in solo and band settings all my life.  I currently play for New Community Church and Upper Room Dallas.  I love people and seeing them meet their personal goals.

Did I mention I work at Guitar Center Part time...

1. I've played for over 20 years

2. Teaching for 10 years ages 10 and up

3. I have transportation and "meetup" rooms if needed.

4. Just give me a ring (714) 916-3056

Love being around the music culture, passionate, and enjoy being able to meet new people along with helping them reach their goals.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Learn their likes - genre of music, any songs in particular they want to learn.  But 1st must learn the basics of finger positioning, memorization of notes on each string, and correct picking.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I had two guitar instructors, one who is well known in the blues and roots genre - Will Derryberry.

In addition, I've played in church bands in Northern California and Southern.  I've also played in Blues bands and rock.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I typically charge a standard rate of $35 for 40 minutes; however, I'm flexible.


How did you get started teaching?

People at church started asking me to teach them, I first didn't charge but they gave me money out of charity.  I then developed a beginner & intermediate level guitar program that has proven to work. Whether just starting out or you have some experience playing, I can provide growth.


What types of students have you worked with?

Ages 10 and UP


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

Dedication to the craft is key, practicing when no one is looking or watching.  It's like learning another language - at first can be challenging but in the end, beautiful.


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

What genre of music do you want to play? Do I want to learn acoustic or electric guitar?  How many times a week/month should I have lessons?  How often should I practice?
