About this pro

Looking for a master guitarist + instructor with an established method, proven to take you from novice to legend in three easy steps?

Me too. If you know somebody, I'm open to recommendations!

I'm a student just like you. Despite having had a bit of time on my instrument, my desire to keep learning and growing is just as keen as it was when I was 16 and picking up my first guitar (which I still play!)

Because of that, I'm still close enough to the learning process to understand what it means to stall, to progress over time, to stall, and to have breakthrough moments in your practice. 

The people who will benefit most here are probably those who just picked up the instrument recently or are looking to develop a good foundational knowledge. Or maybe you're an intermediate-level guitarist looking for a practice/accountability partner. 

In either case, we'll work together to get better, with my goal being to either share what I've learned or to help you find the resources — or the routine — you need in order to reach your musical goals. 

The coolest thing about this to me right now is that it's all so new. I've always loved music — I was playing violin at age 3 and joined a music fraternity in college (shout out to Sinfonia). 

What I've discovered is that I love to be a part of helping fellow artists to grow into their craft.

FAQs


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

Normally I'll meet with you to work out what level of experience you have and what you're trying to do. I'll let you know what I think I can do to help, then make recommendations that will point you in the direction of your goals.


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

I'm a lifelong student of music and taught songs to the Spring 2017 class of initiates to the Pi Beta chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia — the largest collegiate music fraternity in the United States.


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

Not really... I'm feeling it out, to be honest.


How did you get started teaching?

I made a profile on lessons.com ;)


What types of students have you worked with?

You


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently, I walked outside and a pair of little dogs ran excitedly up to me, eager to have their ears and bellies scratched. 

I, of course, obliged them.


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

Work with someone you can get along with that you belive can help you get to the point you're trying to reach. Remember that the person you start with doesn't necessarily have to be your lifelong sensei — it could be that they help you get to a certain point whereupon you "graduate" from the level of instruction they're able to offer. 

Don't be afraid to take a few lessons from different people to see what works for you.


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

I like to have a conversation to parse out what students' needs are based on goals they may or may not initially have in mind. I'm all about choosing a target, aiming for it, and ultimately moving in that direction.
