In guitar lessons with me, I generally go through a guitar book (the book varies depending on the students experience and what we decide to use) but mainly focus on what the student wants to learn.  Learning the fundamentals of guitar will help the student learns what they want to learn, so that is applied to the lessons.   A typical lesson with me goes as follows:   Tune and warm up song (something the student is confident in). Work through 1-2 pages of a guitar book. Practice/Learn a song the student is interested in. Practice/Review chords, note-reading, and scales. End with a song the student likes and has been practicing.

I began teaching private guitar in the fall of 2008 at Puyallup's Hi Ho Music Center.  There I built a substantial student base and many of my students continued to take lessons for several years.  One of my student even started teaching at the same store after he graduated from high school, which I took as an indication not only that he learned a great deal from our time together, but that he wanted to give others that same experience. I left the music store studio format to begin teaching at Dace's Rock N' More Music Academy where they offered lessons as well as an ensemble workshop program.  I had developed a passion for rehearsing and wanted to share that with sudents who were just started out in a band. After a year at Dace's I left to persue an opportunity for full-time performance which has had it's own rewards.  Now I'm excited to bringing those jewels of musical wisdom that can only be gained through experience back to the teaching studio!

I started teaching lessons when I was 16 working for a music day camp in Bellevue, WA. I loved working with young kids who liked rock music and had heart when it came to their love of music. My mom has been a teacher my whole life, and I believe in people passing on knowledge and experiences to each other to help people grow and discover the world.  I think my strongsuit would be in teaching players closer to the beginning of their playing journey, as that was the most formative time for me and when I had the strongest teacher influence in my life. Most of my philosphies would best work from a beginning player's perspective.  Having self-taught myself many things I think I can relate to player's who are similarly self-taught, play more intuitively, and haven't had a technical or theoretical background to a huge degree. I think I can help a lot with getting people out of the boxes they create for themselves in playing as that's my biggest goal as of late. And I definitely see music as being a hugely sacred and spiritual act that humans have been doing forever, and not just something that's taught in schools and done to win competitions or have careers, so I can relate to people's emotional connections to music and explore that side as well. Being able to express musically is a joy, and so my approach is to foster an engagement with it, and focus on your unique relationship with music, rather than forcing people to follow obligatory structures. More advanced players--my specialty area is improvisation and I think I could be of help for those interested in this area!

My love has always been rock guitar so that’s what you’ll get with me; rock and roll, hard rock, country rock, rockabilly… you get the idea. Beginners need to learn to crawl before they can rock but everything learned will be for a definite purpose and not just because that’s how it’s always been done. Intermediate students will learn the guitar parts from a variety of songs in order to develop manual dexterity and a develop a basis for learning theory. Advanced students help develop their own curriculum. ChildrenThe guitar is a great friend as it always gives back to us whatever we give to it. It is never unfair. The more we practice, the better we sound. We all need a friend like that at times (regardless of our age). Is the student excited or overwhelmed? Bored or just tired? As a parent, I have a pretty good idea what signals your son or daughter is sending and can adjust the lesson accordingly. Together we’ll all work to make lessons a successful part of their daily routine together with their other activities. AdultsWhether you have always wanted to play, or you used to play and want to get started again, the guitar is your-time for your-self. Whether that means intensive study or laid back and casual, we’re going to make sure your-lessons fit you.

Nothing compares to the feeling you get when you see your pupils happily growing and accomplishing every goal they set up for themselves. Since everyone is unique and works at their own pace, I don't think it's fair to approach every student the same way. It is of paramount importance that instructors not only pay close attention to their student's progress, but also their lack of progress in whatever areas they may be struggling in. As a mentor, I do my best to listen to each individual's unique needs and address them in a way that will inspire dedication and determination instead self consciousness and apathy.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
