Guitar Lessons

I will teach the student everything about the guitar; notes, chords, music theory, finger techniques, picking, strumming, tuning by ear, improvisation, jamming, singing while playing, writing songs and playing favorite songs. Every student learns differently so we can find out what is the best way for you. Students should always have a favorite song or musician in mind they would like to learn for us to use as a goal for future lessons.

Overview

Hi there, so I started teaching in San Francisco in 2009 and it has turned in to my life's passion. I have been playing for 23 years and found teaching an instrument to be the most rewarding part of my life and always feel like the student teaches me as much as I them. I recently relocated to the area after being back east for three years which is where I am from. I have been awarded as "Best Guitar Lessons" for two years running and "Best Music Theory Lessons" in SF by thumbtack.com. I also have a degree in the arts and sciences. Living in downtown Berkeley is great and and a place I have always wanted to live, it is a neighborhood that fosters music and the arts. When I am not teaching I love to read, write and walk my dog "Louie." I look forward to having a lesson with you!!
