Guitar Lessons

Students can expect to learn the fundamentals of guitar, including proper picking and fingering technique, open chord voicings, important scales (major scale, blues scale, natural minor scale), beginning music theory (including modes of the major scale), and more.

As students progress, we can work on songs of their choosing, as well as improvisational skills and more advanced guitar techniques, such as jazz chords and arpeggios.

Students can also expect to learn handy practice techniques, proper guitar care and maintenance, and other auxiliary knowledge about the instrument itself.

Acoustic and electric are both OK.

Overview

I have played guitar for almost a decade and a half, in a variety of styles. During this time I've played live with several bands, and become acquainted with all facets of guitar knowledge as well as general interdisciplinary musical knowledge.

I love all sorts of musical genres, and have a vast repertoire of songs in my arsenal that will pique a student's interest, no matter what their musical taste.

If you are a beginning guitarist who wants to play some blazing licks, sparkling chords, and hold their own with the most intimidating music cats in the room as soon as possible, I have lots to offer you.

If you already consider yourself an advanced or high intermediate player with some familiarity with music theory, I may not have as much to show you.

I have endless patience, love to laugh, and love kids. Let's jam!
