Review of the 80/20 method and next steps!
I grew up in Londonderry, NH (about 45 minutes north of Boston, MA) and began playing guitar when I was 15 years old. I liked it so much that I decided to spend $80,000 on a music degree from the University of New Hampshire to learn more about music as a language. This interest and obsession with music, music theory, songwriting, pop and rock music flourished and manifested itself through playing the guitar, piano, bass and singing (opera - had to pay for part of that huge school bill somehow!). More recently, I co-founded a music teaching business, 80/20 Music, LLC in order to offer a digital training center for students around the world to access online, anytime!I live in Dover, NH, with my beautiful wife, Emily, and children Noah and Phoebe.
