About this pro

My teaching approach: I started playing the guitar when I was nine. I participated in the Paul green school of rock learning many styles of music. I also participated in my High School jazz bands until graduation. I simultaneously participated in the Crescent Super Band. I have played shows all over the country and the world. I have found that having a successful teacher is having a strong relationship. A feeling of comfort allow the student to ask questions, express concerns, and ask for clarification. I have also found students are most successful when they understand theory and scales. My influences are: Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton, John Mayer, John Frusciante, BB King, SantanaMy guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studio or the student's homeGuitar lessons typically take place on these days and hours: I am available Monday-Friday after 3.
