“Lessons are geared to teach you about music and how it applies to your instrument. Lessons are also tailored to the student's interests, age, and experience level. Students of any age are welcome, as I have experience teaching students as young as age 6, as well as children with special needs and adults. Topics will include, but are not limited to: Music Notation, Chords, Rhythm, Chord Progressions, Scales, Warm-up Exercises, Theory, Improvisation, and General technique. My goals for lessons have always been about the student learning how to play by understanding the guitar, and empowering the student to express themselves through their instrument.”
