I’m here to show people how they can play along with the music they love.

I believe your ability to play with real music is the true measure of your ability as a player.

I’ve been a professional musician and teacher for more than 20 years. I’ve played two thousand live gigs, and I’ve taught thousands of lessons in my career.

My goal is for my students to be strong, confident, and musically ‘street-wise.’ All of my students are well ear-trained, because it’s built into my approach.

My methods are different from most other teachers. I have always used a shape-based, play-by-ear approach to teaching guitar, bass and keyboards. Playing with tracks and with songs is our main activity.

My approach is conditioning-based. I am focused on how the guitar feels. You’ll never get the sound if you want if you’re physically uncomfortable. (Do I look uncomfortable when I play?) And I can tell by watching you whether the feeling is right. If the feeling isn’t right, I have a conditioning-based solution.

Valuable practice tools
available nowhere else

You can also take advantage of my play-along practice videos and audio tracks. They work just like any other workout video - you just keep up with the action until the end of the video. My students never say, “I don’t know what to practice.”  

With hundreds of guided practice routines on chords, scales, picking … you’re never stuck in a rut. Practice routines are based on real guitar parts from hit songs.

My schedule is flexible, but spaces are limited. (If my schedule is full, I can set you up with online teachers I know personally and have worked with for years.)

• I can help you reach your musical goals.

• I tailor my approach to match the learning style of each student.

• You wont be bombarded with information that
seems to have no purpose.

• Take lessons only as long as you want. There’s never any obligation to take more lessons. I will never contact you about scheduling lessons unless you specifically ask me to.

You can book your lesson right now.

Regarding styles: If you want learn metal, shred, thrash, etc, there are probably better teachers out there than me. Nothing against metal. I can’t reverse engineer the dropped tunings. Can’t tell the 6 string bass from the 7 string guitar.
