I encourage students to explore their own creativity
on the guitar by writing their own compositions

My Approach to Teaching

My approach to teaching is to focus on the basics - sight reading, technique, and basic theory that will be helpful for all students to know. For more intermediate and advanced students, I still focus on the core basics, but I will teach these students music that they are interested in learning - metal/rock, pop, blues, funk and jazz. I also encourage students to explore their own creativity on the guitar by writing their own compositions, and also creativity through improvising on the guitar, specifically with regard to Jazz improvisation.
