As adults, wether we know it or not, we have many years of music education up our sleeve. All the music you have listened to in your life has been processed by your mind and body. Whether you are into Folk, Blues, Rock, Pop, Alternative, or Jazz, I aim to make sure that you learn the music you love. This philosophy is at the heart of my teaching approach. As much as I love to delve into theory, scales, and technique study, I generally keep these less inspirational topics in the background. At the end of the day it is how I manage to inspire each student that determines his/her success learning guitar.
