Teaching Philosophy


With over 15 years of experience teaching people age 5 to 65+, I have taught students with skill levels ranging from beginner to advanced. 

I teach guitar in virtually all genres: classical, rock, metal, blues, folk, and jazz (just to name a few). Since the guitar lends itself to so many different styles of music, I try to target the material covered in lessons to each student’s taste. I have found that people learn better, faster, and have a lot more fun when they are learning guitar through music that they love.


Strong fundamentals are the basis on which all music education should be based, I stress them regardless of the style of music I am teaching. These include holding the guitar properly, correct fingering technique, note reading, music theory, and playing in time.
