Private Lessons

Due to the current CV19 pandemic I am only offering live video lessons using Skype or Zoom. I am currently accepting guitar & bass students. Lessons are typically done in increments of 30 minutes once per week. Longer lessons are possible and sometimes even recommended for more advanced students. I have worked with students from the age of 4 to 86. With younger children, sometimes they are ready for lessons & sometimes they are not. The only way to be sure is to try a few lessons and see how they do.

I teach all styles from beginner to advanced. I specialize in jazz and classical guitar which I can teach up to a very advanced level. My number one goal as a music teacher is to help my students reach their own personal musical goals. Whether the goal is to sing campfire songs or to go all the way up to a professional level I can help. The specific things I typically teach:

  • Chords - from novice to master level.
  • Your favorite songs, in any style!
  • Scales - the commonly used ones & special ones if needed.
  • Arpeggios.
  • Improvisation - I've studied improvisation for well over 25 years.
  • Reading standard music notation.
  • Tablature.
  • Classical music theory.
  • Popular music theory.
  • Music composition.
  • Ear training.
  • And much more! If it's not on the list here, send me an email and ask about it.
