The most rewarding part of teaching for me is seeing how much my students have progressed after each lesson. There is nothing more I could ask for than having a student realize that when he/she walked into their first lesson, they had absolutely no idea where to even begin.. but now they can play a whole song (or even a whole album!) I make sure my students are clearly understanding the material we had gone over. This is a very important aspect as the student must understand what he/she is practicing. My lessons always end with an outline of what we covered, how well he/she has covered the passages and what needs improvement. The main vision I have at all times as a teacher is my student satisfying the goals they had before they picked up lessons. I want my students to accomplish their dreams and goals they never thought were possible. For a student to realize what they thought was impossible was now possible to me is a successful student.

I strongly believe that the most important thing when learning music, is to have fun. Art is an expression of one's self, and in order to comfortably express oneself you need to be having a good time. Music can be tough work. I certainly push my students to work as hard as they can, but I do so in a way that keeps them excited about working. I strive to inspire my students, instill a strong work ethic, and educate to the best of my ability while maintaining a fun environment to learn.

I always ask the students what their goals are.  I include the parents as well in this conversation for the younger students, as I find that some parents want their children to learn how to read beginning at a young age.  Other parents may specify that their child may simply want to learn how to play their favorite songs.  For adults, I go with what they'd like to learn and take if from there.  I encourage sight reading, chord building, scale knowledge to all students.  My lessons are tailored to the students' musical goals, and they stay motivated when they learn their favorite songs!  Each song can be taught in a way where the student can enjoy learning it from a basic standpoint for beginners, to a more intermediate or advanced approach for those who have been playing guitar for a while.

I started playing the guitar at the age of 17, after seeing a few live concerts in New Haven (Blues Traveler, Allman Brothers Band, and Phish). I remember sitting and watching in amazement and was inspired to go out, purchase a guitar and attempt to learn some of this music. It was a struggle at first, but with some hard work, determination and willingness I was able to play a few songs fairly well. I began taking lessons and eventually studied music at the University of Vermont and took my first lesson with a well-known jazz instructor, Steve Blair at UVM. Learning jazz techniques and the Berkley Guitar Method allowed me to understand complex music, making rock, blues, and folk fairly easy to grasp. After 20 plus years of playing guitar and performing live, I continue to study with a private teacher, which helps me stay focused and on track! Playing guitar is a life-long passion of mine, and I enjoy helping student’s find their own success and talent.

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.
