I'm very patient because I remember what it's like to learn to play. I asses each student on the basis of their current skill level and prescribe an appropriate method to expedite the best results.

I let the student drive the lessons if they have some experience. If they like Led Zeppelin then I will find a way to use Zep licks and solos to teach them the basics of the instrument to the advanced understandings of solos. For beginner students I always start with basic chords, chromatics, and ways to warm up. I often use the CAGE system when starting with beginners so they will get the basic chords and understand how they are applied all over the neck of the guitar. I always make sure to find out what the students goals are. Each person is different. Some just want to be able to strum and sing while others want to shred and be the best in the world. No matter what they are looking for I push each student just as hard as the other so that they can reach their goals.

With my youngest students I like to start note reading early to build a strong foundation. I often use the Hal Leonard Guitar Method Book 1, or the Christopher Parkening Guitar Method Vol.1 & 2. Depending on the student's playing style, we may use other books or handouts as well. I also teach with guitar tab or tablature, which can be an easier way to start learning songs and riffs. With all my students we will go over chords, melodies, strumming, picking(finger-style or with a flat pick), hand-eye coordination. Together we will construct a progressive lesson plan that fits your individual style of learning and your personal goals.

My methods are versatile. I always aim my lesson goals toward the student. Every student is unique, and they all want to learn something different. If someone has never played music before, I will start them off with basic scales and chords. If they have played before, I will listen to them play for me first so I know where they stand as a musician. I will customize each lesson for each individual. If a student wants to learn Metallica, I will start them off with heavy power chords and distortion effects followed by some lead soloing techniques and scales. If a student wants Bob Marley, I will teach them open chords and bar chords followed by up beat rhythms to get them warmed up on that style of music. It all comes down to the genre the student wants to learn. After each student learns the techniques and style of playing well enough, I have a goal for every body to play to the recording by the band that student loves the most. Playing to the album is the best way to turn a beginning student in to a professional.

Hello, I am a passionate and dedicated musician & teacher with both a bachelors and masters degree from California Institute of the Arts. I am a composer and multi-instrumentalist and I am dedicated to teaching and helping my students succeed. Every student is different so I make a point to craft every lesson to the individual and help them obtain whatever it is they want to get out of music, whether it be to just learn a simple song they like, or to help guide and mentor them on their path to making music a career.

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.
