I am a competent, driven Guitar Instructor that provides acoustic, electric, jazz, rock, blues, country, folk, etc. using finger style and/or plectrum technique. I achieve superior student engagement by strategically exploiting student's interests and tailoring a custom lesson plan. 


I develop versatility in the student's playing that may otherwise not be cultivated by continually evaluating the student's interests as they grow. I provide personal coaching to enable the student to achieve their potential, while maximizing their enjoyment of the instrument.


I have broad and eclectic knowledge of guitar music, and exceptional knowledge of guitars, amps and accessories. I assist the student with every aspect of their learning, including instrument choice. I welcome all questions and challenges, and resolve all "cross-phrasing" issues that arise.

Video Production

In a teaching environment I offer my video skills to assist students with evaluating their performances. I have found video to be a huge asset in inspiring kids, parents and adults!

Audio Production

When appropriate, I teach composition and how to record music. Student's that hear themselves objectively can evaluate their performances, retain the elements they enjoy, and correct the elements that don't sound grood to them.

Career Summary

I was exposed to music at an early age. My mother was a trained pianist, and my grandfather was a self taught pianist. My uncle is a music fanatic and provided me with stacks of 45's at 5 years of age. This exposure drew me into  music for life.  Deeply embedded in my work habits is the discipline I have learned from years of trial and error, resolved by a strong desire to succeed.  It is my greatest desire to transfer the information I have learned and continue to learn to young and tenured students.
