FAQs


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

I first gain a better understanding of where they are and what they want to accomplish. Then we come up with a game plan for the quickest way to get them from where they are NOW to where they would like to be. Then as we work together we are constantly tweaking and setting goals to continue to push forward


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

5000+ hrs of real world face to face experience teaching/training students of all ages and backgrounds.

Full time professional guitar instructor since 2013

Studied guitar since 1999, have had 11 teachers + music theory at SLCC

Member of a international network of expert guitar teachers, players, and music school owners


What types of students have you worked with?

Beginners
- Kids as young as 4yrs old. 
- Total beginning guitar players
- Adults who have always wanted to play but either never got around to it
- Adults who have messed around with their guitar for years and are still beginners
Frustrated intermediate electric guitar players who can't figure out how to get to the level they want. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I did a speed test with one of my star students who began taking lessons at SLC Guitar at age 9. Now at 11yrs old she clocked in at tremelo picking at 1000 notes per minute and can also improvise in any key. 

Another event was our first concer we put on. Students worked so hard for it. Some rewrote guitar solos of their favorite songs or imporivised them. Others had never performed before and totally rocked it under pressure. Fun to watch as most had started as total beginners and those who didn't came to SLC Guitar with only the ability to move their fingers around to some songs. 


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

#1. Look for a teacher who knows how to make the learning process fun

#2. Look at the track record of the teacher / school. A great teacher will save you years of learning and they always have a track record of success. 


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

1. What do you want to accomplish with your guitar playing?

2. Are you willing to commit to the process
