I love to teach guitar and music theory!

I originally learned to play music by ear, then studied formal music theory, structure, and composition academically for several years. So I can share with each of my students a well-rounded understanding of the guitar, improvisation, ensemble playing, composition, and music theory fundamentals, while still letting you use your  own ears to find your own way and your own voice – there’s no better guide!

Lessons are tailored to a student’s individual needs. Kids 9 and older welcome and encouraged. I do not teach classical style.
