BA, Loyola Marymont University, Guitar Performance BA, Loyola Marymont University, Recording Arts
I am a nationally touring solo guitarist. I play and perform original music that is a blend of classical and fingerstyle guitar. I started out as a highly motivated self-taught player, then bolstered my skills by studying classical guitar with Dr. Martha Masters at Loyola Marymount University. I love that the guitar can bring just as much joy by playing a simple folk tunes as does working through a big, technical piece.
I am a highly skilled guitarist that has been teaching privately and in masterclass formats for 14 years. My students have ranged from the ages from 5 to 80 and I bring my full set of organizational skills and musical knowledge to each one. I am proficient in classical and fingerstyle guitar and equally comfortable in teaching folk, rock, pop, and blues. I have worked one-on-one with students, in semi-private formats with duos and trios, and also developed youth bands, teaching them how to play together and preparing them for public performance.
I combine the elements of studying classical guitar, via the excellent Frederick Noad book, with playing modern pop, rock, country or blues songs. This gives the student a solid foundation and great technique to do anything and everything they want with the guitar, as well as keep it fun and entertaining.
My positive energy and excellent patience allows me to draw the best out of both my students while accommodating the needs of each individual. I am always looking for new students to broaden my teaching experience and to help share my skill set with them and developing their talents.
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.Ok
