I am also confident teaching students
who experience learning disabilities or
visual/aural impairments as well as with
with English language learners and international students.
I am happy to answer any questions
you may have, please get in touch!
I offer private guitar lessons and group classes for students of all ages (5+ years) and for beginners to advancing professionals at several locations!!
I have been proud to help students develop their talent, technique, discipline and musicality to become confident musicians for
nearly 20 years.
I can provide instruction for students studying the acoustic guitar or electric guitar, electric bass and related fretted instruments (mandolin, ukulele, etc).
I encourage students at all levels to explore the
wide variety of musical styles in which the guitar plays a role.
Students may help select our songs and exercises from their very first lessons while we also study the fundamentals of music, including:
• Note reading (notation & tablature) • Music theory
• Left & right hand techniques • Improvisation
• Strumming, accompanying song • Ear- training
• Flat picking & finger-picking • Songwriting
• Audition, competition preparation • Ensemble skills
With these skills and techniques, guitar students may
participate in virtually any band or ensemble they wish in short order in addition to playing a wide variety of solo guitar music!!
I also offer a variety of low pressure performance opportunities for my students and have been pleased to help many students prepare for successful recitals, college and scholarship auditions, participation in school and community ensembles and to continue to play the guitar for years - whether as enthusiastic amateurs or professional musicians themselves!!
