"Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime." As I help my students accomplish their musical goals in a fun, disciplined and fast paced way, I get great satisfaction watching them discover and develop their talents, skills and abilities. My hope is that my pupils will learn enough about music from me to be able to learn and play any new music of their choice independent of my help.

I'm a multi-instrumentalist, improvisor, composer and educator who takes great joy in teaching and sharing music with people of all ages. I've been deeply fortunate to have studied closely with multiple master musicians of various traditions. Perhaps the teacher who has had the deepest impact on my teaching methods is W.A. Mathieu, former arranger and bandmember of the Duke Ellington and Stan Kenton orchestras. I studied with Mathieu for three years. I've performed up and down the west coast and am an active player in the Bay Area music scene.

I try to cater my lesson style to the individual students desire and needs. I like to always incorporate the fundementals of music and technique while exploring the material at hand.  Some key points I try to incorporate into my teaching are an understanding of:  rhythm, technique, playing from ear, improvisation, theory, and most importantly making music!

Instruments:

I use beginning guitar books such as Hal Leonard that show the basic layout of the guitar and are an introduction to reading. Also chord books, books on scales, jazz methods, fake books, classical books and such. I like to teach my own style,being creative and going beyond basics. I teach the student how to hold and place their hands properly on the guitar. How to develop a nice light touch and get a real nice sound. After the student can start to play with some ease then we will start to read guitar pieces including easy classical pieces and popular melodies and songs.

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.
