Overview:

I have been teaching guitar since 2006 to students of all ages and skill levels. I grew up in a musical family. Both of my parents are amateur musicians. Growing up as a teenager in the 90's, I was steeped in the history of the guitar including classical, rock, and jazz music. I studied music performance in school and have been playing professionally since graduating from Rutgers in 2005. I enjoy sharing my passion for music with students and helping them achieve their goals as musicians.

EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching privately for 8 years. My students have ranged from kindergarteners who can barely read to adults with a family and full time job. It's been an interesting challenge for me to determine how to approach the lessons, since each student is unique. I have become friends with several of my students and receive the most gratification from seeing their growth and progression as musicians. 

METHODS USED

I emphasize the fundamental techniques necessary for playing any type of music. Rock, classical, pop, folk and jazz, each have their own unique sound but there are basic, common skills necessary to play each of them. I like to focus on developing a good sense of rhythm and time. Specific techniques for guitar that are important are proper picking and fretting. 

LESSON STYLE

Because the study of any instrument and any kind of music can become overwhelming, I like to keep everything as simple as possible. I don't teach more than what the student can handle. I follow the motto, "less is more" but I believe there are a set amount of core skills that should be practiced on a daily basis. I like to hear the student's opinions while offering advice so that they can develop an independent approach to expressing themselves.

No credit card required.

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.
