Since 2005, I have worked as a guitar instructor, band coach, and drum teacher. I have taught courses on music theory, popular to punk to shred to classical guitar styles, and general sight reading for guitar, bass, and drumkit. I've helped several students build pedal boards and trained young bands to record in DAWs.
I find learning music theory fun, but won't force it on you (well, just a bit). I believe learning the fundamentals and ideas behind WHY songs work will help you to teach yourself and grow a foundation to build upon. Learning fom several angles in the beginning is essential - songs, patterns, a little theory, happy accidents - it all adds up to becoming a creative guitarist and musician. If you have gaps in your knowledge, we can fill them. I have a large library of educational resources and cross reference from several books and study materials. We will aim towards any style(s) you are most interested in. Students of all ages are welcome. Specialization includes adults learning an instrument for the first time.
All lesson are now virtual through Zoom.
