Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I like to discuss my favorite songs to play, and discuss ones that you want to learn! I encourage students to learn songs they're familiar with and make the learning process fun.
I am trained in classical music theory as well as modern composition. I can teach you or your child everything from excercise scales and chord progressions to guitar solos and heavy metal (and everything in between!)

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Find a teacher that understands your learning process and can adapt accordingly! I personally am somewhere between a visual and auditory learner, so the best way for me to learn something is a hybrid of videos and practice. Some of my students are purely visual learners, so I give them online access to help learn their favorite songs by reading tabs and sheet music.
Many students I teach are not familiar with Music Theory and feel that they don't belong in the music world - but that is just not true! Jimmy Hendrix, widely agreed to be the greatest guitarist and pioneer of rock music, never learned to read music. What's stopping you?
