Guitar Lessons
If you're serious about learning to play the guitar or bass, and the theory and develop a repertoire of music to play--then you owe it to yourself to try a few lessons with me


Many teachers say beginner to most advanced-but are they advanced enough to really teach on an advanced or intermediate level.

College, and 42 years of full time experience teaching students on all levels have equipped me with the tools to teach anyone to either start playing or help coach experienced and advanced players.

Whatever your goal is, personal enjoyment, playing for and with friends, sitting in somewhere to play in public, or play in or with a band, I can help you advance you're playing.

I can help you with any music and any technique.

Learn how to adjust your attack to just touch.

Learn how to develop solo's based on the vocal lines and chords, instead of just pentatonic and blues scales.

Work on Finger picking as well, learn to use all 5 fingers on your right hand. or use the pick and 3 fingers, with me you WILL use your pinky or little finger, on both hands.

Work on picking and speed and most importantly touch and feel.

Learn to play in rhythm, with a metronome.

Learn to read song charts, and notation and tab.

Learn to work on speed, strength, stamina, play songs you like all the way from beginning to end.
Learn about effects and recording software, amps and songbooks.

I don't just show you songs, I teach you to teach yourself and begin to become musically independent.
Lessons are $40 an hour, or $20 for 30 minutes and scheduling is extremely flexible.
