Adults and Teens

It’s never too late to learn guitar. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard from my students how refreshing it is to take a break from the week and to just make some music.

Hour Long Lessons

30 minute lessons are just too short. Take the time to tune up, warm up, review the previous lesson, learn something new, go through it several times, and still have time left to just jam and have some fun.

Fingerstyle, Folk, Blues, and More…

I’d love to teach you how to play just like I do in my fingerstyle songs, but we can learn any style you wish. Whether you want to strum, pluck, pick, chill, or party, we will set the mood just right.

Learn Your Favorite Songs and Write or Arrange Your Own

Got some songs you want to sing around the campfire? Wish you could create your own version of a Beatles song? Have a melody or some lyrics stuck in your head that you want to put chords to? I’ll be right there with you to do it all.

Learn Theory in Context

Learning theory can get stuffy and intimidating really quick. Rather than teach songs and theory separately, I do my best to integrate the two together. When you learn a song in the key of G, we will learn about the key of G at the same time. You can see an example of that in my lesson video Coloring in the Open Chords | Key of G.

Learn How to Improvise and Jam

In my opinion, the two most important things for any music is to, one, learn to play songs from start to finish, and two, to be able to jam, improvise, and communicate musically with other musicians. I can have you taking guitar solos within your first couple of lessons.

Record Audio and Video

Now that I’m in my new studio, Rise Studio 82 at the Bell Arts Factory, we can record the songs you’ve worked hard on and even make videos to share with your friends. I’d be happy to even do a duet with you!

Lessons are $50/hr and are best held each week.

Send me a quick message — just say hi!

We can meet up at the studio or out for coffee to get to know each other first. Talk to you soon!
