I teach primarily guitar lessons. I have been teaching guitar lessons since Jan 2003. I am formally trained, know extensive music theory, and can read (and will teach, if desired) standard notation (a.k.a. "sheet music"). I have played in all kinds of bands for over 2 decades (rock, metal, classic rock, pop, funk, reggae, disco, oldies, and more). I know literally thousands and thousands of songs. Even though there are many guitar players out there with much stronger technical skills and agility than myself, I am honestly one of the best guitar teachers out there. I say this for several reasons: For one, because I have had numerous students tell me that out of multiple previous guitar teachers they had in the past, I was the only one who ever explained it in a way that made sense to them. Also, with most other guitar teachers, they had "natural" talent and it came much easier to them than it did with me, so they didn't have to struggle nearly as hard as I did. So because I had struggled with many of the same things as a large percentage of my students do, I can still truly understand the problem and offer my own insights and solutions to these problems, which other more naturally talented players simply can not do because they never experienced any of those problems themselves firsthand. A third reason is because I have a knack for explaining things, no matter how complex, in very simple terms and break down the seemingly complex stuff into tiny pieces which they can grasp and master. A fourth reason is because I am completely flexible with my lessons, teaching exactly what the student (or parent) wants (them) to learn, anything from the standard traditional approach (i.e reading music) to the rock approach just teaching them how to play their favorite songs, which I figure out by ear on the spot from the recording which the student asks me to listen to. Add to all that, I am very patient, friendly, humorous, approachable and humble/modest in demeanor, where many other teachers have a huge ego and "God complex", where they talk down to the student and make them feel uneasy and overly self-conscious. As I have been a lead singer and studied voice formally for a number of years, I have taught voice on occassion (rock only). But since my voice has not been up to par for some time now, I no longer will teach any voice students.

I am a trumpeter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer/arranger in the Philadelphia and New York regions. My primary instrument for the past 16+ years is trumpet; I also regularly perform on assorted brass, electric bass, and vocals. I hold a Master of Music degree in Jazz Performance from the University of the Arts; and a Bachelor of Science in Music degree concentrating in Jazz Studies and Theory & Composition from the State University of New York at New Paltz. I have appeared on many albums during the past few years including my own debut solo album. I continually perform, arrange, compose, and record original music.

Instruments:

I  am a very dedicated and lively guitar instructor. I have taught many children, teenagers and adults in beginning guitar lessons. I specialize in beginners. I teach how to hold a guitar and strumming and picking styles. I can teach how to read music. I teach chords and notes in many different styles. My lessons are focused on getting the student to play right away and advance each week. Student and parent input is valued. I am a very patient teacher and love music. I speak six languages and can also teach guitar in Spanish.

Instruments:

I'm a long standing guitar instructor, very pleased with my occupation. I actually hold a degree in science rather than music but I just celebrated my 10th anniversary as a guitar instructor as well as my 22nd anniversary as a guitarist. I love all kinds of music and personally enjoy learning many styles of guitar, which in turn allows me to teach a wider variety, so that students can develop their own personal styles and interests. I want students to be up front about the things that wish to learn (as they discover them!) and the types of music that they themselves love. If you want to shred, play the blues, fingerpick, learn music theory and reading, be a folk singer, or whatever it is, I'll get you there. I also encourage students to form bands, enter competitions and recitals, which I'm than happy to setup.
