Playing guitar is a combination of a number of different skills and abilities: the
manual dexterity of the right and left hands, the mental knowledge of how music
works, the aural ability to hear the sounds one wants to play and the feelings and
experiences inside the spirit of the player. Fortunately for everyone, all of these
skills can be learned and improved upon.
My job as a guitar teacher is, first and foremost, to introduce these skills to the
student and to set each one on the path to improving and progressing their
musicianship to the highest possible degree. More importantly, I aim to encourage
and develop the individual voice and unique personality within each student in
regards to making music and playing the guitar.
Perhaps most importantly, my goal is to develop relationships, within the context of
teaching and mentoring, and to instill confidence, value and a sense of purpose in
the player's life. Music mirrors life on a small scale and the lessons learned in
playing an instrument develop discipline, determination, a strong work ethic and
provide invaluable wisdom for the road of life.
We can work in various styles such as Rock, Funk, Jazz, Folk, Blues, Country,
Pop, Acoustic, R&B, Metal or specialize in a particular one.
