Learning requires focus and repetition that is infused with fun and enjoyment.


Proper technique, ear development, music theory, sight reading, singing solfege, improvisation and composition are all musical abilities that will be developed as we continue to become fluent in the language of music.

I use songs we enjoy to show
technique & theory in use. 


I enjoy the sound and the feeling I get from playing guitar.  I also enjoy watching people gain confidence on the instrument as they play their favorite songs.  I have the best job in the world!  I keep my lessons fun, simple and focused.  Hard work comes easy when you don't sweat it!
