Interested?
Set up a free appointment for you and your guitar to meet with me at my studio to find out what you can learn.  Parents and children are welcome.

I have a well organized and fun teaching program that is tailored to each individual student and based on years of experience. You can learn without standard music reading or you can learn music reading and theory to the highest level.  Are you an intermediate, advanced or working professional player?  Improve your skill and broaden your style with lessons tailored to your need.  Learn to use the whole neck of the guitar and play in every mode and key.  It is all doable in a step by step manner.

Parents - your child can have a complete Classical and Contemporary Music education through the guitar that will stay with them for life.
