My primary goal as an instructor as well as a performer is to create a life long passion for music and personal growth within each of my students, and making sure that each student enjoys and looks forward to their lessons each week is intregal to this goal. Whether an adult, child, beginner, or advanced, realizing the students motivation and personal goals for each lesson is important to tailoring lessons to each persons unique abilities and preferences. Music is fun and I strive to keep it that way!

With beginners, I start with helping them get a feel for the instrument. I believe that learning to read music is essential, so that is how I teach songs. I am also open to teaching TABs on guitar, but I prefer to teach notation. I believe reading music builds a better understanding of music. I also place a lot of emphasis on technique. I come prepared to lessons with exercises and pieces for the student to learn, but I am always open to helping a student learn anything they are interested in!

I have been teaching professionally since 2001. I started at the Rock School in Kirkland teaching drums and Band 101. Shortly thereafter, I started teaching drums privately out of my own home studio. Over the last 14 years I have taught hundreds of students ranging in age from 10-65. I have also taught students with special needs and learning disabilities privately and through Rock School. During Rock School's Summer Camps over the past 14 years (typically 3 camps per summer), I have taught groups of 5-10 kids at a time in all aspects of musicianship, including learning the instrument, writing songs as a group, recording, and live performance preparation/execution. Currently I teach Drums, Band 101, Beginning Guitar, and Beginning Bass.

I want to give the student what they want! I try to understand the students' short and long term goals first, then make a list, so we can check those off. If the student doesn't know what they want, then I go through the basics- chords, scales, rhythm, proper hand posture etc. I try to encourage proper mechanics and fundamentals to beginning students as well. I also try to get students to learn at least one new song or lick to practice over a week, because it really feels good to learn something new!

I began teaching friends in high school and continue to teach both children and adults today. I give private lessons out of my small home studio as well as in their own homes, whichever the student prefers. Learning guitar is a worthwhile, sometimes difficult, and always fun hobby that anyone is capable of. I look forward to helping you achieve your goal of becoming a guitarist!

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
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
