Maybe you’re a songwriter that has an idea but doesn’t know what chords should come next or a lead player that wants their solos to be completely free. Or a beginner that’s watched a few YouTube videos, but stopped getting better and can’t figure out why. You probably need the guidance of a teacher!
I go beyond the memorization of songs with my students. I know it’s a necessary step for learning the basic mechanics of playing, but the problem is you are confined to what you’ve memorized. You probably already realize that this is slow and frustrating.
This is where I can help.
I want my students to understand that there is a system at work, and systems are made to be understood. I will break down concepts into small and easily digestible portions. Even a basic understanding of music will give you the tools needed to learn songs faster and with confidence.
For the more advanced players, I can teach you the modes and why they work, chord theory, arpeggios, songwriting, and improvisation. I specialize in rock, funk, rhythm & blues, soul and am myself currently learning beginner jazz.
I can help you with tone shaping by getting the most out of your gear, including pedal effects, pick ups, and amps, and guitar setup/modifications.

First 1/2 hour lesson is free: I’ll see where you are with your playing and then start a plan to get you where you want to go.
