If you're a beginner, I can teach you the basics.  We'll start with technique, chords, and basic tablature.  I have successfully taught a wide range of beginner students -- from 5 years old to 70 years old.


I can teach you the songs you want to play, no matter the style of music.  I have over 6,000 pieces of guitar TAB.  And if I don't already have the music, I can transcribe it for you.


I love teaching music theory.  Chord construction, understanding key signatures, the modes, etc.  I can give you an understanding of all these elements of music.


Improvising is an important part of most guitar styles.  I can teach you about scales and how to select the right one for each situation.  We'll learn licks, to build your vocabulary.  And the best way to get better at improv is to do it, so expect plenty of jamming.


I can teach you to read traditional music notation (and not just TAB) and how that applies to the guitar.  This is a must for students trying to get into local magnet schools for music.  I have helped students get accepted to Lavilla & Douglas Anderson.


I teach more than just guitar.  I can teach you bass.  Also, since I am a singer, I can help you put together the guitar + vocal thing.  It takes some time, but it can be done -- I'll show you how.
