Proud husband and father. Professional musician and guitar instructor for over 15 years. GIT graduate. Founder of Guitargate. Lead guitarist in What's Next, Baltimore's best party band.

I have been playing guitar my whole life. What started as a passion at a very young age eventually lead to a very fulfilling career in music, and I am truly grateful to be able to make a living sharing my passion for playing!

Short background - I started with private lessons when I was in kindergarten, played in bands throughout middle and high school, and eventually went to Hollywood, CA to formally study at The Musicians Institute (GIT). After GIT, I played professionally in California, and eventually moved back to the east coast where I began teaching private students, coaching rock bands, and playing in local working bands.

Over time, from the perspective of a student, working professional, and a teacher, I developed my own guitar curriculum. I had such great success with my students that I decided to expand my teaching to online. 2 years ago I launched a free interactive guitar school called Guitargate - think "facebook for guitar lessons" - and It's been fantastic. Now, I am very excited to be teaching on Udemy! I hope you enjoy learning the guitar as much as I enjoy teaching it!
