Lessons are mostly at my studio with some in-home options. Pick a duration that works for you – 30, 45 or 60 minutes. We can meet weekly or bi-weekly, or on a more flexible schedule. All ages are welcome, from beginner to advanced levels. My teaching style is warm, encouraging and low pressure. I never intimidate or belittle students. I like to work hard during a lesson, with minimal time wasted. If you can’t bring your instrument, you can use one of mine.
I teach a variety of instruments and genres. Do you like pop, rock, or country? Funk and dance beats? Blues, folk or punk? You can learn swing jazz or latin styles, or beginner’s classical guitar. I can help with your original music and lyrics and improve your band skills.
My lessons are effective and up to date because I research and design material for your goals and interests. I work with your musical abilities and personality, to build technique at your unique level. I can record examples for you to play along to, with an option to record your playing. Another benefit of my lessons is the development of intelligent listening skills – how deeply are you experiencing music you hear or create?
