Overview

I am a professional musician, with a degree in music in the disciplines of guitar (acoustic & electric), and sound engineering (running sound for live music or recording in a studio). I have as much experience teaching as I do performing, composing/writing, recording/producing music. Also, I was never the virtuoso musician. If you can believe it, I had only played guitar for 9 months before audition for the opportunity to study music.

I mention all of that to say:
1) I had to work hard to attain my current skills. So, I know, all too well, the obstacles faced in learning to play. So no matter your skill level, natural ability, or age all are welcome!
2) I have very friendly, laid back, and adaptable approach, because the only way to avoid wishing later that you had stuck with those darn lessons is to ENJOY the learning! So, the aim of the lessons will always be to have fun!
3) That being said, if you are the serious student who has material/curriculum you'd like follow we can absolutely do that. However, most of my students follow a hybrid approach in which they learn to play the music they enjoy, and as a result they experience and learn many of the various concepts of music.

I am more than happy to come to your house, school, or practice spot! Due to the high costs of travel in CA, those rates are slightly higher. I also have a very safe, and comfortable studio/practice area at my house, and you are more than welcome to join me here!
