I have loved guitar since age 5.  Guitar has been my biggest joy.  I feel sorry for those without music in their life.  Very therapeutic and beneficial in many ways.  Fun for all ages.

Pass on as much knowledge as possible.

I started playing guitar at age five and have been passionate about it ever since.  It is as much fun now as then.

I have a classic music background and have developed a hybrid style of teaching by ear along with classic theory.  No reading of music is necessary. Fun is guaranteed.  Popular music is much easier than you think.

I specialize in popular music.  Blues, Rock, Country, Popular, Bluegrass, Folk, a little jazz, and a little classical.

It is important to pass on as much of the information that has served me so well for so long to the next generation of guitar heroes.
