I teach effective practice strategies for maximum progress.  This is facilitated through quality lesson formats, and materials customized around the student's individual needs & goals.


Beginning students will learn:                                                                                                                            


  • Reading basic modern notation, chord charts, and tablature

  • Common chords, strumming and picking patterns

  • Basic scale theory and an introduction to key signatures

  • Cool songs and a better ear for music!!!

Intermediate students will learn:


  • Interval and in-depth chord theory

  • Hybrid Picking techniques

  • Improvisational soloing and in-depth scale theory

  • Interpreting fake music and lead sheets

  • Technique in performance

  • Composition and songwriting


Students may also learn about booking shows, guitar/music gear and the recording process as well. 

Each beginner student is expected to:


  • Practice approximately 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week

  • Bring their own dedicated "music"  notebook, which will be updated weekly with assignments

  • Learn to use a guitar tuner and metronome



















Though not all students desire to be a guitar shredder every student is required to learn some fundamental scales.  Some younger students may initially need parental help with developing discipline for practice sessions. 

I use several fantastic method books that help facilitate student practice time.  They are fun, affordable, available locally, and help reiterate key aspects of guitar lessons.




Pricing and Policies

Weekly half hour lessons are offered for $140 per month.

Tuition is due on the first lesson of every month. Late payments are subject to a $10 fee.

If a lesson is missed, every effort will be made to provide a makeup lesson.  Makeup lessons can not always be guaranteed, however I will provide lessons online.
