Overview:

I've been playing guitar for twenty-two years, and am a full-time professional musician in Los Angeles. I make my living playing live and studio sessions, teaching and composing music for tv shows and commercials. To date, I have placements with Honda,Pizza Hut, Got Milk, Banner Health, and a total of one million Spotify streams with my original music. I have a degree in Studio/Jazz Guitar from Thornton School of Music at USC. I've been fortunate enough the study with some of the best players in the world, and I'm able to pass the knowledge I've learned over the years to my current students. I'm proficient in all styles and I make all my lessons fun and exciting.

EXPERIENCE

I began teaching ten years ago and enjoy it very much. I teach what my students want to learn, by asking them what music they listen to, and their favorite artists. To me, there's no point in teaching types of music the student has no interest in. I generally like to teach my lessons on a per-song basis, meaning we'll focus on a number of tunes, and can extract techniques and theory from those songs which in turn improve his/her playing. I also love to teach improvisation, and the lessons become very fun when the student and I can play together in time.

METHODS USED

For beginning students, I like to teach simple and fun tunes that get them excited. I focus on single-note licks/melodies, and will gradually add open-chord progressions and songs to the curriculum. It's best to practice everyday even for 5-10 minutes, rather than every other day or few days for a longer period in my opinion. Once they start improving, I'll gradually teach more challenging songs that'll keep them engaged, but not overwhelmed. No matter what level, I always stress the importance of time and intonation.

LESSON STYLE

I always keep an open attitude and make my lessons energetic and exciting, while still being constructive. I love seeing my students' faces light up when they hear a cool lick, or when they nail a song they've been working on. That feeling makes the whole experience worth it for me, and I feel very lucky to teach music for a living. It's a pleasure to turn my students on to music and artists they've never heard before and seeing them grow into confident and mature players. I remember starting out when I was a kid, so I can relate very much so.

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.
