About this pro

Even a few minutes of playing a day is enough for huge results in a matter of months. Let me teach you how to spend that time better!

No need to already read music or know all the notes and chords. You can easily write and play songs without a ton of memorization.

I've been playing guitar for over twenty years and have experience teaching, playing live, and recording.

Teaching online allows me to reach a wider group of musicians. I like getting to know new players and helping them create their own practice and play schedule. Proficiency is earned through daily activity, I want to make practicers feel like explorers!

FAQs


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

I start out getting to know the student and their goals. We discuss how much of their own time they can devote to practice and I show them a bird's eye view of my process.


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

$30 for 30 minutes, but you can purchase a month (4) of weekly lessons upfront and save $20.

If you prefer a more deep dive or have me work through longer practice sessions like a "personal trainer" I can do $50 for an hour or we can work out something specific.


How did you get started teaching?

I showed a complete beginner an AC/DC song and saw them get it down in a couple minutes. It was so inspiring seeing someone else literally growing before my eyes. It wasn't that I was some genius, I just explained it clearly and they applied themselves. It was them not me, and I know it can be you too!


What types of students have you worked with?

So far I've only taught students with little to no previous experience. I generally teach blues, rock, and pop.


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

Look for teachers who can answer questions well, ones that ask what you want to learn instead just teaching you. You're not just downloading their information, they are guiding you on your own path. Good luck!


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

More important than what skills you want is what you will do with those skills. Do you want to play live, or is this a personal hobby? Do you want to play your favorite songs, or do you want to write original ones? Will you record your playing and put it on the internet or just jam with buddies? Of course these aren't simple either/or questions, but they help let the teacher know where to devote the most time.
