    I have over 15 years experience teaching guitar lessons. I work with students of all different skill levels including brand new beginners all the way through advanced.

My main focus is to always understand a students desired goals and areas of playing they are hoping to improve and grow in. Once specific goals and direction are established I create custom lessons and plans to help each student achieve their individual musical goals. 


 I understand growing as a musician is not always easy and can be frustrating.  I hope to eliminate some of the frustration along the way by providing positive encouraging feedback while implementing  practical and efficient ways of improving techniques and overall learning. I'm a firm believer that learning to play guitar should be fun, exciting and inspiring. I try to carry this  into every lesson.
