I am a full time professional musician with my time split between teaching guitar and performing as a solo entertainer (guitar and vocals). I was self-taught, from the age of thirteen, playing folk and rock from the 60's and 70's. In my early thirty's I joined a Praise Band and quickly discovered that I was lacking in a lot of necessary skills on the guitar. At that point, I found a terrific teacher, and spent several years working with him to refine my skills while adding the ones I lacked.
Knowing what it feels like to learn those desperately needed skills, I have a passion for seeing my students learn and truly enjoy watching them succeed, even at skills that I mastered long ago.
